Land Use Consulting and Economic Development Advisors

Welcome to Urbanomics Planning Group’s inaugural website!

I formed UPG in 2010 to provide clients with a unique blend of services not often found in one firm. We bring urban planning and economics together as required to solve difficult land use and development issues for both private landowners and public agencies.

You may need an entitlement application that could be bolstered by detailing a project’s job-producing potential or an economic development study that benefits from evaluating zoning and real estate. UPG has the broad expertise to produce results because we understand that real estate projects and cities often benefit when their social and financial needs are evaluated together.

Urbanomics Planning Group works in communities all over Southern California. In particular, UPG has experience with due diligence and entitlement processing in both the City and the County of Los Angeles. We have strong relations with government staff and can help produce the best results for our clients by opening up the communication with decision makers early. More often than not, this leads to clients getting a better project while keeping good relations with members of the community.

We help cities, counties and regional agencies, by producing concise, understandable, and most importantly, useful reports and studies that City Managers and Economic Development Staff can implement to see real change in their communities.

In the future, look here for upcoming articles of interest in vaious areas such as land use trends, economic development, taxation, politics, real estate development, and zoning.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Yours Truly,

Matthew A. Goulet
