The Firm

Duncan Associates specializes in assisting local governments set plans and policies into motion. Known throughout the U.S. for our work in modernizing zoning and development codes and crafting fair and legally defensible impact fee studies, the firm has offices in Chicago and Austin.

Zoning / Development Regulations

We believe in zoning and development regulations that are fair, predictable and that perform. We don’t get caught up with labels. Our philosophy is that the best zoning is zoning that removes unnecessary regulatory and procedural obstacles and that achieves desired results.

Impact Fees

Our familiarity with the available cafeteria plan of legal methodologies enables us to craft impact fee systems that are tailored to each local government. Duncan Associates has prepared impact fee studies for jurisdictions from coast to coast.
