Communities are thriving hives filled with the constant buzzing of comings and goings. They hold the infrastructure of our neighborhoods, corridors, multi-use developments, parks –all things that enhance the quality of life.

At CSRS, we help you plan and design with these communities in mind. Our planning approach is built around active engagement, constant collaboration, encouraging big ideas and on-time completion within budget. Our team develops each plan utilizing all studies available, ensuring the ability to adapt to risk with the future in mind. As active members of the communities we serve, we strive to create more livable, resilient communities to enhance an overall quality-of-life.


“CSRS [is] the right firm for large, comprehensive projects that require dedication to Parish government and the citizens in need of critical, quality -of-life services,”

-Jerome Fournier, Director of Planning and Development Ascension Parish
