Theurkauf Design & Planning specializes in municipal services including comprehensive, open space, and recreation planning; ordinance preparation; development plan evaluation; and park and facilities design.

Raised on a farm and educated under pioneer environmentalist Ian McHarg, company founder Edward A. Theurkauf champions land use and development patterns that first and foremost preserve the natural environment and countryside. In this spirit, Theurkauf Design & Planning advocates functional, sustainable, and harmonious practices that guide growth in response to the singular character of each local community and how it fits within the broader regional and natural context, to provide a necessary alternative to the banality and destructiveness of suburban sprawl.
