BUILDING YOUR COMMUNITY
Public engagement (n.): Involving community stakeholders in decisions that affect them through identification, education, and feedback
PIA works with you to design a public involvement program that fulfills your project and communication goals, while incorporating our experience with planning and project implementation.
Public Involvement has many shapes and sizes. The most important part of a project is to identify the right stakeholders. Some projects require smaller consensus-building meetings, while others need broad-range quantifiable virtual programs and specialized focus groups. PIA helps clients identify and implement the right type of program.
PIA is certified as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) by the North Central Texas Regional Certification Agency (NCTRCA) and as a Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) with the Texas Comptroller's Office. PIA is also certified as a DBE in North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Tennessee. In addition, PIA is pre-certified for Public Involvement through the Texas Department of Transportation.
