Terra Nova Planning & Research, Inc.

Parks and Open Space Plans

Parks, recreation and open space are integral to the integrity of the natural and built environments. From community-scale to neighborhood and pocket parks, we have been assessing community needs and providing planning and design services for more than two decades. Our clients include cities and parks and recreation agencies.

Terra Nova has conducted open space and recreation planning along the Colorado River and adjacent to Joshua Tree National Park. As contractor to the Bureau of Land Management, Terra Nova helped update the California Desert Conservation Area Plan and EIS. Our involvement with the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument has included the economic impact analysis for the NEPA EIS, and the NEPA analysis of proposed trail networks and especially their effects on the endangered Peninsular bighorn sheep. Our work on the Carrizo Plain National Monument contributed to the resource management plan and the NEPA EIS.
