Technical Assistance

With over 25 years of experience in the planning world, Crossroads has the skills and capacity to fill organizational gaps as your community undergoes growth and change. Holly Mattei’s 15 years of experience at the Fairfield County Regional Planning Commission, serving as the Director for 8 years, sets Crossroads apart to provide this service. As a community grows, they will likely see an unprecedented amount of plan reviews, rezoning reviews, and subdivision reviews. Crossroads can effectively manage and conduct these reviews while supporting the community in increasing its own planning efforts.

Crossroads has the expertise to assist communities that are just beginning to hire planning staff. Our services are flexible and often begin with evaluating the community’s administrative capacity and following up with recommendations on staffing levels and the potential for new positions. This includes strategic budgeting for planning activities, as well as providing planning and administrative services to communities as they look to build their planning efforts.  Crossroads will guide the community through the hiring process: assisting with interviews, selecting candidates, and training them alongside community officials and staff.
Crossroads has served as planning staff
Crossroads has served as planning staff for various communities such as Circleville, Lancaster, Jersey Township and Harlem Township near the under-construction Intel plant. Many of these communities were experiencing new levels of development and needed short-term solutions as they worked towards long-term change. Crossroads has provided essential assistance in both areas.
