For more than 35 years, Carlisle/Wortman Associates has helped the leaders of Michigan communities define and realize their futures.
Our strongest work comes from the 63 communities where we manage the planning department, in some cases for more than 25 years. We deliver the traditional tools of planning, like master plans, zoning, public hearings, site plan reviews and parks and recreation plans, supplementing them when needed with downtown plans, environmental and energy plans, grant writing and management and more.
Our staff professionals contribute knowledge and leadership to planners and municipal leaders through our blog, journal articles, professional conferences and training. We are home to four past presidents of the Michigan Association of Planning.
Communities that choose Carlisle/Wortman Associates know that they can plan with confidence.
