Public Involvement

Envision is a part of the community it serves, and so when it comes to public involvement services, we consider ourselves neighbors and friends – not just consultants. We understand that the public is a valuable partner in a project’s success.

Envision provides public involvement and community outreach as part of a comprehensive suite of professional consulting services. We develop a personalized focus by carefully examining the affected community and taking great care in selecting key services, based upon project and client goals, at the onset of every assignment. We determine the critical elements of an effective public involvement program, and adopt a proactive approach to truly engage the community. It is our goal to maximize the project’s positive outcome and minimize the adverse impact.

Each community is unique. We gain a level of understanding as to what is important to the citizens and to determine how they will be impacted. The public and key stakeholders are involved from the earliest possible point in the project’s evolution – from the conceptual and study phases, through design and construction. We partner with local governments, businesses, neighborhood associations, and other appropriate organizations to facilitate community-wide communication. Through carefully planned involvement activities, such as open houses, opinions are gathered and findings are presented. We share appropriate and timely project information with those in the community, and conversely, alert project owners as to its perspectives and concerns. This leads to public and stakeholder trust and confidence in the project.

Graphic Design Services

Envision understands the importance of memorable branding, consistent messaging, and creative appeal to a project’s success. We realize that audiences respond favorably to positive visual stimulation. By bridging the gap between art and business, our graphic design services inform, educate, influence, enhance communication, and bring ideas to fruition. Graphics are particularly important to the success of architecture, engineering and construction projects, and in public involvement initiatives. They help improve the effectiveness of reports, brochures, flyers, websites, advertisements, display boards, applications, presentations, videos, and a host of other print and electronic media. Envision’s graphics combine corporate identity, layout, images, color, GIS mapping, and thoughtful analysis to make information accessible and real.
