We foster extensive community participation in the creation of a detailed action plan utilizing a series of “Take-Part Workshops”. With our knowledge, we can “hit” the ground running and will work hard to create a partnering and collaborative effort with residents. We believe public participation is a critical element in the planning process. In fact, we consider citizen involvement key to the ultimate success of implementation of every project. It is important for a constituency of citizens to take ownership in the plan and lend their continuing support to its successful implementation.
Our approach is specifically tailored to meet the unique, individual needs of our clients. Our techniques include key stakeholder interviews, informal networking, possibility charrettes, surveys, workshops, official briefings, and neighborhood forums among other innovative approaches. In short, effective communication with the public is one of the keys to our project success. This same process has been used to work with residents in Wilmington, North Carolina, Asheville, North Carolina, Allendale, South Carolina, and Augusta, Georgia.
"I have worked with and interacted with the F.A. Johnson Consulting Group extensively and have found their counsel to be extremely useful in both implementing specific projects, as well as establishing a city-wide plan of action."
