IPS Group is a rapidly growing urban planning firm. The Group has extensive professional experience in comprehensive planning, code development and public involvement as well as development processing and project management. The firm has proven working relationships forged through public sector employment and private sector partnerships.
We believe that relationships based on trust and mutual respect are critical to successful endeavors. Thus, we work closely with agency staffs, elected and appointed officials, community and business leaders and neighborhood representatives to create these relationships. Our philosophy is that our clients are the experts about their community. Our job is to complement that knowledge with new ideas and a fresh approach.
Over 50 years of combined experience working with communities in urban planning and development have afforded IPS Group the expertise to help both public and private sector clients achieve their goals.
In 2005 IPS Group was retained to prepare a new comprehensive plan for Bryan, Texas, a city of over 70,000 people and adjacent to Texas A&M University. This recently adopted plan “Bryan Comprehensive Plan – 2006” has been awarded the Comprehensive Plan of the Year Award by the Texas American Planning Association. This award is a significant accomplishment for the City of Bryan and for the consulting team who worked on the project over the past year. IPS Group led the consulting team which consisted of 3 other professional engineering and demographic firms.
The award was presented at the Texas American Planning Association Conference in Addison, Texas. This is the second award for the 2006 Comprehensive Plan. It was awarded Plan of the Year by the Central Texas Chapter of the American Planning Association in July, 2007.
