Service to our profession

No other planning firm in Michigan has four past presidents of the Michigan Association of Planning on their staff. Dick Carlisle, Dave Scurto, Paul Montagno and Steve Cassin all represented Michigan on the American Planning Associations Council Presidents Chapter, with Dick chairing that organization during his tenure on the MAP board.

Ben Carlisle is an elected member of the American Planning Association’s AICP Board of Commissioners.

Our work has served as a model in a number of zoning publications. The model landscape and site plan review ordinances we prepared have been included in MAP’s Site Plan Review and Community Development Handbook. Our work has also been referenced in SEMCOG’s Design Guidebook.

CWA provides training for the members of the Michigan Municipal League, Michigan Township Association, and Michigan Association of Planning.
