“KKC was extremely knowledgeable on the subject, innovative, efficient and professional. The written materials presented to City Council and P&Z were of the highest quality. KKC’s innovative use of GIS and 3D technologies to visually depict the potential impacts that some of the proposed zoning changes could have on the city was invaluable to the process. By using this technique, KKC could take a complicated piece of code and easily explain it with a visual that everyone could understand.”

 “Our experience with the new UDC was great. We not only received development approval in an efficient manner, but we also ended up with a better project, which will likely produce a better return on our investment. Thus, the UDC created a win-win scenario. It had enough flexibility and foresight to ensure that profit and protection of resources are not competing interests.”
Ross F. Berthelot, Broker/Owner | Prime Realty Group

 

 “KKC went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that we are comfortable with the UDO and its early implementation in many respects. KKC equipped the UDO with a creative and user-friendly set of access, publishing, and maintenance tools, as well as built-in calculators that ease the use of the UDO and its standards. This integration of technology into the UDO has been well received by users of the ordinance, as well as City staff and local decision-makers. “
