Land Use Planning

From Our Clients
I was called into service (literally) as the Director of Advancement for Coastal Christian School after retiring as CEO of Mission Community Bank. My new “mission” was to raise funds to finally, after almost fifty years, build out the permanent campus on the site that was donated decades ago. Little did I realize that when Carol Florence and Oasis Associates popped into my life, how blessed I would be for the wisdom, advice and counsel I would receive as I journeyed through the complicated nature of developing the site. Simply stated, we would be lost without her. She helps us navigate through the maze of things necessary for our ultimate success. Her partner, Michael Cripe and the rest of the staff have been of tremendous assistance as well. They have taken personal ownership in our mission and vision for the school. All of us at Coastal Christian are eternally grateful for their efforts. God Bless Oasis Associates!

Oasis Associates, Inc. has been a preferred partner for Wathen Castanos Homes for over 8 years. Carol Florence and her team have been instrumental in the planning and processing of our projects within the San Luis Obispo area. In addition to planning services, Oasis is also able to provide landscape architecture for our projects that is second to none. Michael Cripe and his team’s vision for exceptional landscapes have not only enhanced the value of our projects but will leave an everlasting value for our homeowners as they enjoy the Oasis team’s visions for years to come.

Upon my arrival at William S. Hart UHSD, I immediately began working with Oasis Associates on major athletic facilities projects on three of our high school campuses. From design development to construction and closeout, your experience and expertise lead to successful projects that were delivered on schedule and on budget.
The list of projects that we have done together is now long and varied, and the common denominator on every project we have worked on is captured in one word – successful.

As a manager and construction executive of multi-million-dollar projects, including national-brand retail and regional shopping centers, I know the importance of cultivating a management and consulting team of the highest performers. Oasis Associates was instrumental in the renovation of the Madonna Plaza Shopping Center. I have relied on their expertise and knowledge to provide clear guidance from initial project programing to organized and pragmatic responsiveness to challenges during development and construction which has resulted in on-time completion of projects even with the most aggressive of permitting schedules. Had it not been for Oasis, this project would never have been completed on time.
