Often planning and design are the easy part. What is often more difficult is engaging the public, stakeholders, and elected officials. The i5Group strongly believes that a well-executed public affairs strategy should be an integral part of planning and design. Public affairs begins with identifying the goals of the effort and then identifying a strategy, schedule, and actions to achieve those goals.
The i5Group understands that time spent listening to a wide spectrum of stakeholders early in the process to identify key concerns, issues, and opportunities pays huge dividends later. We engage the public, stakeholders, and elected officials in a wide variety of methods including one-on-one meetings, small group discussions, surveys, open houses, work groups, committees, social media, and printed materials to effectively listen and communicate throughout the process.
We work with communities, agencies, businesses, organizations, and neighborhood groups to develop an effective and engaging public affairs strategy.
