Community & Stakeholder Outreach/Engagement
Our community engagement team works to bring together and otherwise guide the stakeholder engagement process (Initiate, attend, facilitate, and record project meetings) with homeowners, business owners, special district board and management, vendors, local officials, and other stakeholders to assess the needs and if needed, to build buy-in, and recommend actions.
