Great River Passage Public Engagement Meeting

2015 Minnesota Transportation Conference


In the United States, transportation development projects must navigate a complex legal framework for engaging and consulting with the public, agencies, and Native American tribes. Through their over 35 years of combined experience completing complex transportation planning and development projects, 106 Group and Zan Associates have found that the benefits of meaningful engagement and collaboration outweigh the perceived risks and ultimately result in better projects that enjoy greater community support. To guide you through this challenging process, we will be presenting at a session at the 2015 Minnesota Transportation Conference. Come join our discussion!

Session 23: Make Your Outreach Plan More Effective
Wednesday, March 4 at 3:15pm (Plaza 1)

Moderator: Kimberly Sannes, Kimley-Horn and Associates Inc.
A robust public engagement plan can get people talking, learning from each other, and working together to create solutions. Presenters will highlight best practices and share real-world examples to inspire you about your next project.
