"While the decision was made to use in-house staff to develop our Parks Master Plan, we quickly realized we needed assistance. Mr. Barth was the only person who came to mind and we quickly brought him on board to guide us through the process.
– Matt Suedmeyer, CPRP, Manager, Orange County Parks and Recreation Division SEE MORE

"Barth Associates was great to work with. Their experience was evident as they led our community through public meetings and made presentation to our City Commission. Definitely recommend this crew to those seeking a professional team to help create a master plan."
– Nan Voit, Director of Parks and Recreation, City of Fernandina Beach SEE MORE
