I have worked with Susan Roth in my capacity as Planning Board Chairwoman in the Town of Monroe, NY, where she served the planning board as a consulting planner. She has provided us with excellent advice regarding clustering which was fair to the applicant and complied with all Town regulations. She has worked with us on difficult and controversial projects and has consistently provided sound advise and guidance, especially regarding SEQRA issues. I would not hesitate to recommend her in the capacity of consulting planner.
