Local Engagement and Participation
Our approach to public involvement is based on achieving informed consent through a systematic process of active citizen, business, agency and elected official engagement, information and participation.
We understand that stakeholder issues often vary greatly on projects. We have the experience and skills to work through the challenges with positive results for all involved. We have successfully led public involvement efforts for some of the state’s largest and most complicated transportation, infrastructure and revitalization projects as well as for several smaller, yet highly impactful community projects.
