“The City of New Rochelle has had the pleasure of working with CommunityScale’s Nels Nelson, particularly recognizing Nels’ exceptional leadership and project management skills. Faced with a tight timeline and the complexities inherent in a project of substantial scale and significance, Nels’ project management exhibited expertise, organization, and dedication to steering the project to a successful completion. Nels’ ability to lead a large, multidisciplinary team, ensuring seamless communication, coordination, and collaboration among diverse stakeholders was remarkable. We highly recommend Nels as a reliable partner capable of leading large and complex initiatives with efficiency and effectiveness.”

Director of Planning and Development Services
City of Mesquite, Texas

“Team members from CommunityScale contributed to a Housing Study for our city. The study was thorough, detailed and comprehensive. They were flexible when we requested specific changes and completed the project on schedule even though our city processes caused the project to commence later than planned. They provided high quality deliverables and information that we have put to practical use. I would recommend them for your housing needs assessment.”
