Environmental Impact Review (MEPA and NEPA)

Complex projects, and even simpler ones, often trigger review under the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).  Unless carefully coordinated with other permitting, these environmental reviews can cause long project delays.  We focus on early planning with consultants, regulators, and other stakeholders to develop a comprehensive strategy to sequence environmental and other permitting efficiently.

STRATEGIC ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REVIEWS  

Anderson & Kreiger’s depth in public law benefits both our private and public sector clients. Our experience representing all stakeholders – private developers, municipalities, citizens’ groups, and others – facilitates the resolution of contentious issues.  We coordinate and collaborate with consultants and experts to:

  • Develop a comprehensive permitting strategy and schedule that adequately accounts for the environmental review process.
  • Reach out to the lead permitting agencies responsible for the reviews and other key stakeholders early in the process to identify issues and develop solutions.
  • Prepare Environmental Impact Reports and Environmental Impact Statements that anticipate and squarely address key issues.
  • Address comments raised during the review process expeditiously and thoroughly.
  • Assist in the defense of agency decisions.
