Public Involvement and Communications:
Connecting Communities, Building Bridges
March 2020 - ATC is a full service firm dedicated to bringing communities together and creating connections with those who are traditionally underrepresented or do not typically participate in public processes. Our expertise and experience ranges from small projects to large, multiphase projects of regional or statewide impact. We are a multicultural, bilingual Spanish speaking firm with extensive experience working with cultural communities across the Northwest as well as the region’s largest public agencies.
Among other projects, we are currently working with a prominent nonprofit to expand and reenergize their public reach; a local public agency regarding upcoming development decisions; a state agency facing significant policy changes; and more.
A leader in harnessing new communications technology for public involvement, ATC combines traditional tools such as public meetings, stakeholder facilitation, web sites and email lists with the world of digital communications including geofencing, retargeting, 3D modeling, time lapse video, aerial imaging to show location and perspective, virtual tours on Google Earth, post-production animation to visually show project phasing, imaging systems that synch with leading construction management platforms such as ProCore and CMiC Global, and much more. ATC provides these skills in house to save clients time, money and efficiency, including secure online project management platforms – no more waiting for reports as clients have 24 x 7 access to the status of all public involvement activities.
Our team’s public involvement project experience includes modernization, preservation, bridge, corridor and other transportation projects; commercial office and retail; affordable housing, environmental and urban planning projects.
