Consultation & Communication
Public consultation and communication is essential to most land use planning and development projects. This exchange of information creates the foundation for trust and cooperation, which is critical for achieving meaningful results. Different perspectives can also lead to better projects.
We believe in public and stakeholder involvement processes that are transparent, accessible and inclusive. Providing convenient and innovative opportunities for input at various project stages can encourage broader community participation. Our consultation methods are designed to meet specific objectives and can be used to inform, identify issues and opportunities, establish long term vision, build consensus and generate commitment.
We offer the complete design, coordination and delivery of consultation activities or stand-alone facilitation services. We can also develop and produce communication pieces to support project consultation objectives.
