I founded Lumen Strategy, Ltd. to help citizens interact with their government and to help the government serve their citizens.
I have been working with and in local government since 2005, when I began working with a third-party agency to provide Pennsylvania Uniform Construction Code services to municipalities. Since then, I have developed many municipal ordinances from property maintenance codes, to Subdivision and Land Development, and Zoning Ordinances.
In addition to municipal ordinance work and developing and managing intergovernmental cooperation agreements, I have worked on community engagement, SWOT analysis, policy recommendations, and developing strategic goals for economic development, environmental stewardship, land use, planning, and zoning.
"Not only am I impressed with Stephen's work, but after our meeting, board members approached me to express how much they appreciated his preparation and presentation."
"Although we are experienced business owners in New Jersey, Stephen guided us through the regulations in Pennsylvania, helping us to obtain zoning approval for our development."
"When my partner and I needed a special exception to open our businesses, our realtor suggested we contact Stephen for assistance. He immediately knew what to do, guiding and preparing us for the zoning hearing where the special exception was approved.
