Developers looking for a seasoned land development consultant have a new option in the Tri-Valley Area. Wood Rodgers, a multidisciplinary engineering and planning firm founded in 1997, opened a new office in Pleasanton in the fall of 2013. Originally a Sacramento-based company, Wood Rodgers has had a Bay Area presence for over 10 years, with offices in Oakland and San Francisco. Motivated to continue growth in the Bay Area, the Wood Rodgers Pleasanton office was a strategic move to be closer to clients and cater to land developers and builders in the Tri-Valley area.

The company believes that by hiring the best professionals in the field, they can provide the highest level of quality and services to public and private clients alike. The flat management structure of the company empowers project managers to move quickly and be highly responsive to client’s needs.

Mosca has a keen ability to balance the needs and desires of the jurisdiction with those of the client in order to guide a project to a successful conclusion.
 
Paul Meuser is also a Principal of the firm with over 20 years of experience in all aspects of land planning and urban design.Meuser’s projects range from planning small-scale urban infill sites to mid-size new towns and communities to the development of large-scale regional growth strategies. Striving to balance the varied goals of home builders, developers, land owners and public agencies, his work emphasizes the creation of interesting, livable, sustainable neighborhoods that promote and reinforce a strong sense of place. Meuser is well-versed in the procurement of project entitlements and brings substantial experience to the writing and processing of Specific Plans, formulating Design Guidelines, facilitating Community Outreach, and managing projects from inception to approval.
 
When asked what distinguishes the new Pleasanton office, Mosca responds “We’re lean.” She highlights that this is a strategic approach focused on being nimble and giving each project the attention it needs. Clients who choose Wood Rodgers will receive principal expertise at every step—Mosca and Meuser will guide each project through the complex land development process. “We are more efficient, cost effective and motivated than our competition,” states Mosca. “We are eager to make our mark on the Bay Area.”
