Community Relations

Start early. Listen carefully. Be responsive.

Successful community relations is about building understanding, trust and support for your program or project. It means recognizing that all change impacts the people who live, work and raise their families in the community. It takes a win/win approach to build support, address community concerns, minimize impacts and maximize benefits.

We can help you develop and implement strategies that will build community support for your project or program.

How do we do it?
We develop comprehensive plans using a variety of outreach strategies, from large community meetings to direct personal contacts. We start the outreach process early to gauge community opinion and solicit input. We produce informative materials and distribute them in multiple formats and set up lines of communication to foster dialogue and ensure accountability for follow-up.
