Subdivision and Development Review

Trotter and Associates Inc. is a service oriented firm and strives to provide timely review responses.  TAI's review staff has experience as municipal employees and understands each community's requirements and processes.  TAI has strong working relationships with local, state, and federal regulatory agencies as well and understand each agency’s jurisdiction and regulations.  

It is important to note that over 86% of TAI’s workload has been for government agencies, and the other 14% is from private work. Of the 14%, over two thirds of the workload is from several different private utilities companies and railroads.  TAI prevents conflict of interest situations by avoiding work for private developers where a conflict could arise.
