Environmental impact assessments are often required for federal, state, and local project approvals. Birch Ecology and our consulting team have considerable experience evaluating environmental impacts of proposed projects for compliance with federal, state and local regulations. Our team of consultants includes professionals in a variety of disciplines who have collaborated to produce complex Environmental Assessments, Environmental Impact Statements, and local Environmental Impact Reports. In particular, we have experience documenting the impacts of proposed land exchanges and evaluating environmental impacts for Section 404 Wetland Permits for a variety of project types. We have also prepared environmental sections of State of Colorado 1041 Permit applications, Great Outdoors Colorado Environmental Checklists, and Colorado Department of Transportation Access Permits, and helped our clients to gain approval for these projects. In addition, we often support clients with local environmental reviews necessary for PUD approvals, annexation agreements, and site plan reviews. We play an important role in these projects by attending planning board hearings, city council meetings, and public open houses to answer questions and discuss potential impacts.
