Public Involvement

Public involvement programs work best when they are developed before the project begins. VN Engineers will collect data to understand the level of public knowledge and determine the composition of key audiences. This facilitates strategic communication planning and implementation, including targeted message development for key constituencies. VN Engineers' public involvement professionals use a wide range of communications tools including: newsletters, handouts, videos, interactive Web sites, e-mail and CD-ROMs. Our goal is to start a constructive dialogue with all the stakeholders and make sure that the public’s voice is heard during the design process.
