Community Relations and Public Outreach

The Community Relations team delivers results by building support and community understanding of important infrastructure and municipal programs and projects. Our unique experience in public works, construction, engineering, environmental and public engagement programs forms the foundation for helping our clients achieve continued success.

NV5 has conducted intensive and creative community outreach activities as a part of many projects to encourage local participation in the planning and decision-making process and to identify community concerns, including transportation, social, economic, cultural, environmental and other issues important to the public. Our planning and design staff has a history of working together to perform successful community outreach efforts that achieve positive results. Public involvement techniques employed include charettes, focus groups, open houses, web sites, project newsletters, surveys, interviews and multi-media shows.

Bringing innovation and high quality, high touch service and responsiveness is a key difference in achieving well-rounded, effective communication and outreach programs.

By combining traditional public outreach expertise with innovative outreach tools, technologies and social media platforms, our team can achieve immediate education on programs and utilize these connections for long-term reinforcement of successful efforts or work towards behavior change on issues such as water conservation efforts.
