Citizen Engagement

Public involvement/citizen engagement is an essential element of the planning process.  The purpose of citizen engagement and public involvement programs is to involve the public at every possible step in the planning process, to make accurate and understandable information available to the public and to transmit the public’s input to project staff and decision-makers.  Fernandez Plans has developed strategies for several projects.  Additionally, Fernandez Plans has designed and carried out several community visioning programs as well as facilitate small focus groups involving local government staff and citizen groups.
