Saranac River Trail, Plattsburgh, NY

Alta Planning + Design has worked on more greenway and trail projects than any other firm in North America. Our past clients include all levels of government agencies, a wide range of nonprofits, and private sector interests ranging from developers to private foundations. Our trail and greenway work has taken us from the Pacific Northwest to the Everglades, from the Delaware River to the LA River, and from Grand Canyon to Grand Teton. Altogether, our experience in planning, designing, and implementing trails and greenways has allowed us to work in hundreds of client communities and a broad spectrum of projects. Our services include complete trail master planning, visioning, alternatives analysis, and project design, as well as developing environmental documentation, property acquisition strategies, accurate cost estimates, maintenance plans, management plans, and funding strategies.

Implementation of a planned facility can be the most challenging aspect of a trail project. Easements, permits, funding and construction issues require an experienced team. Alta offers not only planning and design, but also construction document development and construction administration. Our staff includes registered landscape architects and engineers with over 100 combined years of experience negotiating easements, securing required permits, and working with contractors.
