Some use a one-way outreach model or PR tactics as a substitute for real engagement. At Turn Corps we generate authentic dialogue by seeding local, personal conversations and creating thought-provoking communications.
Our communities are changing. Rural towns are building and maintaining local economies, and attracting new and younger talent. Suburban cities are dealing with traditionally urban issues. Cities are becoming more unaffordable. Demographics are shifting across the state, and nationally - and people are feeling the impacts. And they want a voice and a more authentic planning process, with the expectation for better outcomes. Let us help you navigate and negotiate these issues with your constituents on the front-end so there are less surprises throughout your project.
