At The Planning Center, we believe that when people come together to discuss an issue, the community is able to obtain a better understanding of their vision for the future. One of the most crucial aspects of the public involvement process is to engage and educate participants. Our public involvement processes are designed to meet the diverse needs of the community, elected and appointed officials, major stakeholders, and public agencies.
As part of our approach, we tailor the public participation program to include a variety of outreach strategies designed to increase community participation. By using collaborative planning tools that engage participants and maintain the community’s momentum, we are able to generate constructive results.
