I wanted to take a moment to thank you and your company for the great work you have done in order to achieve recent approvals for our mixed-use project in North East Oceanside.  This project was a complex combination of public and private interests that you managed brilliantly.  Additionally, you and you staff exhibited an intimate knowledge of the workings within the City of Oceanside’s staff and provided excellent document preparation that allowed the project to navigate its way to approval.

The Lightfoot Planning Group is the mainsail mast of development in North San Diego County.  The services and insight that you provide are the rudder and keel of the approval process; keeping projects on track and preventing them from turning upside down in a sea filled with serpents.

I have worked with The Lightfoot Planning Group on various projects over the past 15 years and believe it to be essential to overcome the overwhelmingly complex and difficult process to achieve project approvals in North San Diego County.

The Lightfoot Planning Group has provided Ord & Rodgers Homes with consulting expertise for almost 30 years. Over this period of time, Ord & Rodgers Homes has developed and constructed over $400 million of work. We would not have been able to accomplish this feat without the judgment, creativity, and hard work of the Lightfoot Planning Group. Lightfoot's expertise in navigating our projects through the constantly changing regulatory requirements of the city, county, state, and departments and agencies cannot be underestimated. The Lightfoot Planning Group has always represented our organization in a principal, intelligent, ethical, honest, competent, and professional matter. ”

I have worked with all of your staff, but the two that I have dealt the most with are Lou and Lauren.  My thoughts:

Lauren:  Dedicated professional; willing to listen and incorporate client’s ideas into the project while also suggesting alternatives; outgoing personality always accessible.

Lou:  Extremely knowledgeable in the processing of documents/plans through the Oceanside City staff; consummate professional who makes time for every client; stays within budget; exceeded my expectations.
