“HR Green has been successfully performing City Engineering, project support, plan checking, and development reviews for the City of Hemet since January 2019. The firm brings a business sensibility to electronic plan review and engineering management, working closely with our Community Development staff to streamline and assist with the development entitlement process. Further, HR Green is an ideal fit for combining experience with value by reducing the amount of paper, time, travel, and costs associated with the plan review process. The use of the virtual cloud promotes real time project tracking.”

The City required an acting City Engineer to manage the land development process and deliver capital projects.
HR Green assigned on-site engineering and construction management staff who established procedures and protocols to accept and track plan check subdivision plans and their costs. These costs are fully tracked and there is 95% cost recovery for the services provided.
HR Green staff members also developed the City’s Capital Improvement Program and manage the street, pavement rehabilitation, water, sewer, and drainage projects from concept planning, through design and construction.
This newly incorporated city needed a firm to handle City administration, engineering, public works, building and safety, as well as development needs.
HR Green provided comprehensive services, and as part of their responsibilities prepared, update and manage a multi-year Capital Improvement Program. As part of this, engineers have provided overall planning, coordination, and control of CIP projects ($9+M annual CIP), from inception to completion, for the past 10+ years.
HR Green also assigns cross-trained staff to maximize existing resources and handled the procurement and management of regional, state, and federal funding due to limited City resources and critical infrastructure needs.
More than $5 million in new funding for various other projects was identified and HR Green helped the City establish a $9 million bond program to fund an expedited pavement rehabilitation initiative. A streets and trails master plan was also developed.
HR Green helped to renegotiate and manage a solid waste contractor agreement that improved service levels, largely maintained the existing rate structure, and significantly increased revenue to the City.
“I have had the pleasure of working with 20 HR Green employees in my department. HR Green staff members perform plan check, building inspections, permit issuance, management, supervision, and code enforcement duties. The staff are highly qualified in terms of education, certification and experience, which results in a high level of customer service and productivity. Furthermore, I would highly recommend HR Green to any city or agency that needs their services.”
