Who We Are
Crawford & Bowen Planning, Inc. was formed by two experienced environmental planners who saw a need for specialized environmental planning services. Our mission is to provide excellent environmental consulting at the most efficient level, while maintaining the highest standards for quality and legal compliance.
Our environmental compliance strategy is both economically and environmentally sound.
