Retired Colorado Springs planner sets up shop as consultant

Paul Tice, Colorado Springs' longtime development review manager, has retired from city government, but isn't giving up his involvement in local land use issues. Tice has launched his own consulting firm: Land Planning & Development Services Inc. Among other services, he’ll help businesses get their land-use applications processed by local governments; coordinate the work of engineers, landscape architects and other experts hired by applicants; assist financial institutions that want to know if borrowers have obtained the proper zoning for their projects; and help project applicants obtain zoning and clear other regulatory hurdles. Tice also hopes to consult with short-staffed local governments that might want to hire him to write a land-use ordinance or review project applications. Tice is based in Cripple Creek, but expects to do most of his work in the Springs area.
