Visual Anaylsis

Foothill Associates has extensive experience evaluating aesthetics impacts of proposed projects. For projects located within sensitive view corridors and viewsheds, Foothill Associates’ staff members have analyzed potential visual impacts from key observation points, analyzed the degree of potential view interruption or degradation, created photo inventories, assessed community values relevant to surrounding views and architectural designs, and provided graphic depictions of existing views and anticipated view impacts using computer visual simulations. Foothill Associates has experience using Bureau of Land Management (BLM), U.S. Forest Service (USFS), and other visual/scenic assessment protocols for both CEQA and NEPA analyses.
