Introducing Envoy's Vision to Execution (V2E) Service: Turning Community Visions into Reality
Introducing Envoy's Vision to Execution (V2E) service, a comprehensive planning, use/market analysis, financial analysis, and implementation service for communities looking to achieve their vision. Envoy's V2E service is designed to guide clients through the entire process, from vision to execution, with the help of experienced professionals with expertise in construction, development, finance, and real estate.
One of the biggest challenges facing municipalities today is the lack of in-house staff or resources to complete large-scale projects. The V2E service aims to bridge this gap by connecting the dots between community needs, available resources, and market demand to help create a feasible and sustainable plan for the future.
The process begins by engaging with community officials to identify community goals and needs. Depending on market demand, local needs, financial viability, the socio-political environment, construction costs, and how a project might fit into a master plan or ongoing community goal, Envoy will identify potential project locations and community stakeholders. The next step is to conduct visioning exercises with design professionals, engineering and construction resources, and local stakeholders to create a conceptual master plan that considers the needs and desires of the community. A market analysis is also conducted to validate demand and prepare preliminary fiscal impact assessments with the help of a municipal fiscal advisor and/or attorney.
Once the initial plan is developed, community outreach is conducted to gather feedback and refine the plan as needed. The V2E service also works with elected officials to create any necessary community groups to help implement the plan, acquire any necessary property, and conduct due diligence, including engineering analysis to address utilities, soils, topography, and drainage.
As the plan progresses, the V2E service works with local government agencies to evaluate the fiscal impact and update the master plan as needed based on engineering findings. They may also assist with zoning changes, offer land for private development, solicit developer participation, and negotiate project agreements.
Throughout the entire V2E process, Envoy is committed to transparency and serving as the owner's representative for the life of the project. Envoy may also self-perform some or all of the development work depending on the market and its current capacity. Envoy will forgo any owner's representative fees for that portion of the site. The municipality's engineering consultant would then serve as the owner's representative for those sites.
In addition to the comprehensive V2E service, Envoy also offers zoning assistance to help prepare PUDs, rework existing zoning districts, create overlay districts, or establish design guidelines that align with the master plan and allow for future development.
V2E is a collaborative approach that considers the needs and desires of the community. Envoy's team of experienced professionals is dedicated to helping communities achieve their vision by providing comprehensive planning, use/market analysis, financial analysis, and implementation services.
