Meeting with Hannah was great but the internet bandwidth was low on the city's end so we ended up speaking over the phone.
Great experience working with Cecelia and Adam. Cecelia is very responsive and helpful...
Great chat and got all of my questions answered. Thanks!
Adam Foster is terrific, knowledgeable of the various steps and processes and communicates in a way that is easy to understand. Keep up the great work.
Hats off to those who were in charge of creating this opportunity for architects like myself to be able to speak directly with Planning staff about our project particulars. Extremely helpful and valuable. Keep up the great work.
Hannah is extremely help nice and we had a very productive meeting!
Adam Foster covered a lot of ground in a twenty minute conversation. He covered technical issues, zoning, and neighborhood issues. I definitely got what I needed to advise my client.

Great call with Cecelia today. Very helpful.
Very helpful, thank you
Hannah answered my questions very clearly. I was hoping to get my project approved with a single Zoom call but I guess we will have to submit for review... :) Seriously though the Zoom with the screen share worked fine and saved a trip to the counter. Hannah is an excellent communicator. Thanks
Very helpful , and made sure that all my questions, concerns were heard.
From the appointment scheduling process to the telemeeting with Adam, the process was extremely convenient, very straightforward, and a great way to ascertain the info I needed.
I had a 30 minute call with Adam Foster yesterday and he was very helpful. He answered all my questions and provided relevant information via email immediately after our call. Overall a very positive experience!
It was a pleasure talking with Cecilia she answered all my questions!
Adam Foster was knowledgeable, professional and articulate. You need more like him in order to move projects thru at a faster pace.
I love Orinda Planning. They are so nice, knowledgeable and accommodating. The contrast with other planning departments (like, say, SF) is like night and day.
Very polite and informative
Adam is a pleasure to work with -- patient, thorough, and extremely helpful at guiding us toward effective project implementation. Also really appreciate the efficiency of Zoom consultation in the planning process.
Adam was extremely knowledgeable and helpful on our call. He was prompt, professional and we will definitely be reaching out to him for future questions.
Adam is very knowledgeable on the zoning issue and helpful to answer my question on the steps for a preliminary build plan.
As always, very knowledgeable, professional and helpful. Great Thanks to Orinda Building Department.
Cecelia... Very pleasant and helpful Thank you.

Hannah is great, she explains the zoning approval process very clearly and give me good recommendations to work on the utility connections.
The Planning Technician (Adam Foster) was very helpful in answering my questions and guiding me through the planning process.
Zoom call was available on same day as my request. Staff was responsive and helpful.
Hannah was professional and answered all of my questions. She proactively followed up to make sure we could have our meeting since I received a confirmation without zoom link. Hannah also followed up after our meeting to answer a question for which she needed additional info. and sent a useful table pertinent to my parcel. Thanks Hannah & Cecelia!

Phone call was great, Adam answered all my questions re ADUs and submittals. I now have a better handle on the new procedures.
I was very grateful for the opportunity to speak with a planner virtually. The experience was as productive as would have been the case in a live meeting, and his insights and guidance will certainly create a smoother application process. Thank you creating this approach to reduce downtime as we wait for offices to open up again.
Excellent service. City Planner was very helpful.
Except that my virtual appt. got lost in the shuffle it was a very good experience. When I finally got to talk to Adam, he was very informative, seemed knowledgeable, and was very friendly. Overall a very good experience
Very professional and efficient. It is a good fair way to not have to wait in line.
The meeting with the planner went great. She was prepared and we were able to share the screen and code. I hope this system stays in place, as after all, it kept one car off the road. Thank you for adjusting so quickly to face these difficult times.
