ORION PLANNING GROUP IS NOW
ORION PLANNING + DESIGN.
The new year brings new changes and directions for Orion that we are excited to share with you. First, we have changed our name from Orion Planning Group to Orion Planning + Design, or OPD. This change is meant to signal our evolution into a planning and design firm with solid skills and excellent qualifications in urban design, landscape design, and planning and design for parks and natural resources. Of course, we continue to offer excellence in general planning and code creation, too! We now actively serve almost every region of the US, although we do not limit ourselves to any geography. Heck, we’ve even worked overseas and welcome international projects!
As part of our name change, our web address has changed to www.OrionPlanningDesign.com and all of our email addresses will be transitioning from @orionplanninggroup.com to @orionplanningdesign.com.
