A message from Scott Odell, President:
I am retiring after 44 years as an environmental, school facility and city planner. To my clients and colleagues, I have sincerely appreciated knowing and working with you over the years. My career has been enjoyable and rewarding and it is satisfying to know that we have played an important role in providing essential school sites and facilities to school districts and community college districts in California, especially in the central San Joaquin Valley.
We will be closing the business over the next few months and finishing the work we currently have under contract. This spring, after living in the foothills of eastern Madera County most of our adult lives, my wife Mary and I will be moving to the breathtakingly beautiful Bitterroot Valley of western Montana to be near our daughter. We are looking forward to this exciting new chapter in our lives.
I wish you all the best in the future!
