Why Choose Us?

Florida Land Design & Permitting Inc. was formed in February 2019 in order to help developers achieve their goals throughout the Greater Tampa Bay area. Most experienced land developers understand that it is not the consulting firm they select that brings them success, it is the Principal-inCharge of their project, at that consulting firm, that ensures success, but only if that person has a long history of “hands on” design and management experience, a sincere and proven “Make It Happen” attitude, and an excellent, long term history working with professionals at the municipalities, Water Management Districts, etc. where the development is located. This is because “A Paper Pusher manager, with little to no hands on design/quality control experience, just doesn’t cut it, and could lead to problems when the project goes to construction.”


At FLD&P the Principals-in-Charge are Ed Mazur, Jr. P.E. (President), Paul Skidmore, P.E. (VP Engineering), and Jay Hunting, (VP Environmental Services) each with more than 40 years of successful, hands on, planning/design/permitting/quality control/management experience with all types of projects throughout the Greater Tampa Bay area. Just a few are:

For large land development projects the most important challenge is permitting through the US Army Corps of Engineers. Most of our competitors rely on outside environmental firms to address this issue, but that can lead to delays caused by miscommunication between the firms, or different priorities with the outside environmental consultant.


At FLD&P Jay Hunting, who has an excellent, long standing, trusting relationship with all Corps staff, works side by side with Paul Skidmore and Ed Mazur on every permit to eliminate any communication issues. This has led to successful Corps permitting for:

• Cypress Preserve

• Concord Station

• Asturia

• Chapel Crossings

• Epperson Ranch

• Trinity Oaks/Thousand Oaks Drainage Improvement
