Whether large or small, any project that affects the way a community lives, works, or plays can benefit from the valuable insights the community can provide.
Providing all stakeholders with a voice in the future of their community is integral to creating plans that are enduring. ESA’s planners facilitate public workshops, focus groups, virtual outreach, and other techniques to inspire meaningful dialogue.
Our goal is to include, educate, and engage communities. A diversity of backgrounds brings diversity of input and ideas, and builds community support. Providing a variety of engagement venues and media ensures that all stakeholders have the opportunity to participate.
