The expertise of our staff and strength of our professional relationships allow us to implement public participation programs that are specific, purposeful, and productive. We operate on the premise that public participation is one of many elements needed to spawn economic growth and create sustainable and successful developments.
Based on the belief that those who are affected by a decision have a right to be involved in the decision-making process, a public participation or public involvement process is typically mandated by a governing body. It requires use of a wide range of tools and processes for active and meaningful involvement of the public in the planning and development of public projects (usually public works projects).
