Public Involvement

The public voice is powerful, and the success of your project depends in part on how well you engage the public and consider public input as part of the development process. POWER’s public involvement experts can help that happen, with years of experience and a proven track record in public involvement and outreach in the energy, environmental, and transportation industries. We know how to engage the public, capture the essence of their concerns, and maintain an accurate and complete public record for regulatory compliance.

We’ll first identify and then work with stakeholders to gather input and help you apply it to project decisions. Our approach is proactive and will help you avoid common project pitfalls. If a crisis does arise, you’ll benefit from our extensive training in mediation, conflict resolution, and crisis communications. We mobilize quickly to minimize impacts to scope and schedule.

Public Involvement Tools

Depending on your project, we’ll work with you to develop visual communication tools that will effectively communicate your project’s progress, impacts, and benefits. Some examples are:

Working with POWER’s GIS experts, we also utilize a highly effective GIS-based system that tracks public comments, so you can fully incorporate public input while also documenting how that information was used in the decision-making process.
