Municipal Engineering & Land Planning for Growing Communities of All Sizes

We are your best advocate. FCE will provide specially tailored services to meet the specific needs of your municipality. We work closely with municipal officials and staff in order to provide the most effective and efficient services possible.

Municipal Engineering Services

For over two decades, our municipal engineering services have helped community leaders and administrators utilize resources to maximum potential.

In the past, FCE has been selected to act as subject matter experts at the local and state levels, such as the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors (PSATS) and Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT). Members of our staff also have been, or are currently, locally-elected officials. This is an asset to have under our firm’s belt as we are capable of navigating municipal engineering from both perspectives – government and end user.

Municipal Engineering: Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need a stormwater plan to install a shed or garage at my house?

Each municipality has a stormwater management ordinance that mandates how the stormwater runoff from a building or hard surface must be managed. The purpose of the systems installed is to make it so there is no more stormwater runoff from your property than there was before the building was built.

What are the zoning restrictions for developing my property?

Zoning restrictions vary from municipality to municipality and zoning district to zoning district. FCE will evaluate your specific project to determine any development restrictions and identify any needed relief from the zoning ordinance and assist you in the zoning approval process.

Contact FCE, we can help you determine this and the best use for your property.
