• Logan Simpson Design Assisting Colorado Springs Utilities with Natural Resources Consulting

    Pikes Peak WatershedLSD is part of a team of consultants selected to provide natural resources consulting services to Colorado Springs Utilities (CSU).  Previously, key LSD staff worked with CSU to develop a plan for public use in the Pike’s Peak watershed, an area that had been closed to use for over a century. The plan provided for recreational use combined with resource protection strategies and monitoring to assure that water quality and other important resource values were maintained and enhanced.
    LSD will provide similar services through this new contract with a focus on recreation and trails planning as well as the conduct of environmental assessments and related studies.

    CSU, a municipal utility, provides electricity, natural gas, water and wastewater services to the Pikes Peak region.

  • Logan Simpson Assisting City of Fort Collins with Lincoln Corridor Plan

    Logan Simpson is assisting the City of Fort Collins with the Lincoln Corridor Plan. Lincoln Avenue between Jefferson Street and Lemay Avenue is a critical connection between Fort Collins’ downtown and the eastern part of the community. It contains a rich and eclectic mix of historic neighborhoods; old and new businesses; and public/private open space. Changes are occurring rapidly along this corridor, and development of the Link-N-Greens site into a major employment center will transform how the street functions. In anticipation of these changes, the City of Fort Collins undertook many planning efforts, but the corridor is still lacking a cohesive identity and specific steps for improvements and change. LSD will assist the city in developing a compelling vision and to identify and prioritize improvements to the street and surrounding area.

  • Logan Simpson Wins GSA Blanket Purchase Agreement to Provide Visual Resources Services to BLM

    Our visual resources specialists know that changes to landscape scenery can be one of the most evident—and often controversial—effects of projects developed on federal lands. Failure to understand or properly assess a project’s potential impact on the visual environment can result in costly, time-consuming delays.

    The BLM recently awarded a five-year blanket purchase agreement (BPA) to Logan Simpson to provide visual resources management services, including the inventory, analysis, and assessment of visual resources required under the BLM’s Visual Resource Management (VRM) System. By conducting visual resources inventories that comply with VRM requirements, Logan Simpson will also help the BLM establish a thorough and consistent national geodatabase that will help the agency manage visual resources more effectively. The contract also allows Logan Simpson to provide visual resource management training, provide technical advice and guidance to federal land managers, and perform research on visual resource-related topics.
