“As a primarily residential campus, maintaining a beautiful campus grounds is a priority for St. Francis Xavier University. At a 150 plus years old and over 60 acres under active daily use, maintaining the complexity of grounds was beyond our capacity. Environova has put us back on track, making huge strides in a short time frame by helping us establish and deliver on a concise go-forward strategy for maintenance and renewal of our campus grounds.”
Ramsay Duff, Vice President, Finance and Operations St. Francis Xavier University, Antigonish, NS
“Hi Stan, We think of you often and I just had to send you a note of thanks for creating such a wonderful yard for us. We get so many people stopping by and commenting on the place, specifically the yard and mature trees, and how it frames and compliments the home. I always tell them itâ€™s because of you and your trees, and pass along your name. Weâ€™ve had several comments from others about the trees and how they continue to flourish. Of all the contractors we had, your contributions are among the most valued, and we just wanted you to know.”
Kim & Phil Knoll, Halifax
“As a relatively inexperienced group forging into the area of planning a park for our community, we knew almost instantly that Stan was the best person for the job. His experience was reassuring, his patience was greatly appreciated and his work spoke for itself. Stan was always timely with his responses whether it be via email, or phone. And when the committee had questions (lots of them!), he took the time to respond thoughtfully to each and every one. Finally, Stan was very true to the communities "shopping list" for the park's amenities, and this was reflected in his wonderful park plan. We feel very fortunate to have worked with Stan and Environova Planning.”
Lia Glover, Chair Port Williams Community Park Committee and Laura Duke Churchill, Funding Coordinator, Port Williams Community Park, Port Williams, NS
“The school community of Aldershot Elementary School in Kentville, Nova Scotia has thoroughly enjoyed the experience of working under the guidance of Stan Kochanoff to realize the dreams of a Community Park. His expertise, careful plan and wonderful ideas have resulted in a property that is inviting, beautiful and yet practical for elementary school aged children. Stan coordinated and encouraged the involvement of our students and parents so this was indeed a rewarding experience for everyone, The before and after pictures tell the story!”
Sarah Tessier, Principal Aldershot Elementary School
“I would like you to know what a pleasure it was for me to work with you. Very early into this project I knew Environova Planning Group was the right company. Your hard work and dedication into this project clearly shows itself in the final Action Plan. I would like to congratulate your company on a job well done. District 7 now has an Action Plan that is clear and concise, with all our priorities in place, and most important it is the true voice of the community. The feedback from the May 31, 2003 final report is incredible. The community is excited and encouraged that we do have a plan for economic renewal for our community. Thanks again.”
Margaret Gushue, Chairâ€”Steering Committee for Whitney Pier & Area Development Association

“Just a note to let you know that the Tourism Development Strategy Plan your firm carried out for us in 1996 is now into its third year of implementation. The plan is working out very nicely and we were very satisfied with the work and the report produced by Environova. We would be pleased to recommend your firmâ€™s services to any other communities anticipating planning strategies of this type. Your personal touch and the relationship developed between our steering committee and the members of your firm was greatly appreciated. Please feel free to use our name as a reference on future projects.”
