Public Involvement

Implementing a public involvement program that fully engages citizens, stakeholders, and decision-makers are integral to the success of any major planning or infrastructure endeavor. RS&H has carried out numerous successful public involvement and stakeholder coordination programs that support local, state, and federal agencies on a variety of initiatives ranging from comprehensive regional and sector plans to neighborhood studies. Because of their high level of influence, we identify and meet with major stakeholders in the first stages of project development to determine their concerns and start developing solutions. Our goal is to turn stakeholders into project advocates by enlisting them as partners and allowing them to help shape alternatives.

By using innovative methods to engage citizens, such as interactive tools and guided tours, we make public involvement fun and relevant to our clients and their constituents. Our team employs state-of-the-art visualization technology to help communicate complex planning, engineering, and environmental concepts. We also adapt our services to multilingual audiences and engage in nontraditional public outreach with K-12 schools, business advocacy groups, colleges and universities, and senior programs to achieve a much broader exchange of information.
