Environmental Planning and NEPA Documentation

Coastal Resources, Inc. has over 40 years of experience in environmental planning and NEPA compliance.  CRI assesses a wide array of interconnected resources including identifying, quantifying, and analyzing both direct and indirect project impacts and has expertise in coordinating the sometimes-divergent priorities of regulators, resource managers, and public stakeholders with project needs. CRI works closely with project engineers and regulators early and throughout planning to identify potential environmental permitting issues and enhance the feasibility of projects by developing creative solutions that avoid and minimize potential impacts to sensitive resources. This proactive approach and CRI’s extensive experience facilitating interagency reviews allows for a successful project that addresses natural resource concerns and meets regulatory requirements from the start. 

CRI understands that clear documentation of technical findings and analysis methods is critical.  CRI excels at communicating complex science-based information in a reader-friendly format that enhances public understanding of potential project impacts, regulatory requirements, and the decision-making process.
