“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 needed a firm that could serve as a City Engineer, accelerate the delivery of capital improvement projects, and manage the land development process while assuring the development community pay fair share costs for study reviews and plan checks.
