We are passionate about trails and the quality of life benefits these resources can bring to a community.
LaBella understands that connecting our local communities and regional landscapes is one of the most significant recreational, social, and economic development endeavors we can accomplish to connect people with their environment.
Complete Streets, shared use pathways, greenways, rails-to-trails, interpretive trails, and regional connector trails are principal endeavors that link our urban, historic, and natural resources. We work closely with our clients to produce sites that balance beauty, utility, and sustainability.

Because each trail project has a specialized set of existing conditions, regulatory requirements, and programming needs, we assemble a diverse team of professionals in the planning, design and permitting of each trail type – experts in environmental sensitivity and permitting, hazardous materials evaluations, structural engineering, transportation-oriented design, and working state transportation authorities.
