Our goal is to have our work fit your requirements, and from the first conversation we listen, recommend, and adapt, combining and adjusting our different services so that you have solutions for your questions, goals, and challenges. To serve you, we deliver:
Clear, straightforward writing in all of our reports, with integrated charts and tables that directly contribute to the reader’s understanding.
Analytical modeling that answers questions, tests scenarios, and earns client confidence through transparency and clarity of data inputs and assumptions.
Public and private presentations, learning sessions, and workshops on specific projects or economic development tools.
Advice and recommendations throughout the project so the outcome fits your needs.
We help clients confidently make development and financial assistance decisions that are based on objective research and analysis, and insight into local context. Storrs Associates understands that leaders are never anonymous in their communities, and their decisions must be not only sound, but defensible and transparent to the public. Working with us means:
Approving bodies, and participating groups such as economic development or finance committees, learn about a project or tool, such as tax abatement or special district financing, before being asked to make a decision. Storrs Associates tailors education and discussion sessions to the knowledge needs of the group, and encourages active participation.
You understand the processes used to produce a result, especially a tax analysis or an economic impact. There is no “black box,” and Storrs Associates will always take the time to walk you through an analysis step by step, reviewing data sources, assumptions, and decisions about inputs such as interest rates or escalation factors.
Every report is readable and ready for publication at the client’s preference. Storrs Associates designs each deliverable to reach the target audiences with clear, accessible information that is relevant to their needs.
Advise on and strengthen reviews and applications for planning board approval, grants, tax credits, and other forms of financial assistance using objective, third-party analysis.
