    • Community EngagementCOMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT The DR+A team understands that community engagement is a fundamental part of place making and community development efforts. People care about their communities and expect a chance to participate in decisions that will affect the places where they live, work, learn, and play. Residents, business owners, and civic groups are just some of the stackholders at the core of the planning process. We believe that when more stackholders get involved the resulting plan not only reflects the community’s vision, but also empowers the ownership and continuation of the planning effort. The end result needs to be an implementation plan that move forward with community involvement and not simply some book that sits on a shelf. Our team and consulting partners understands how to engage diverse communities and groups in productive discussions about complex and sometimes controversial issues. We appreciate the challenges involved in bringing the client, the design team, and the community together in an integrated process of analysis, problem solving, and action planning. Crafting a strategy for community engagement focused on the specific community and participants is essential for a successful planning process. The DR+A team members are experts in engaging diverse communities and groups in productive discussions about complex issues. Following the principles below, our team members been able to bring diverse, often opposing voices, into planning processes in productive, meaningful ways.THE FIVE BASIC PRINCIPLESEnsure Community FitSuccessful community engagement respects and respond to a community’sunique interests and culture. While there are a lot of common threads inour approach to public engagement, each project develops its own uniqueidentity. As we begin the process, we spend time identifying and working withstakeholders and client groups to understand issues and refine our approach.The result is a process designed to respond to the community’s diversity ofexperiences, perspectives, and expectations.Establish a Clear, Transparent ProcessEveryone needs to understand the schedule and sequence of activities thatbuild toward interim and final decisions. When basic questions regarding theare clearly stated, stakeholders understand how their participation fits within alarger context. We work with clients and communities to clarify visions, goalsand expectations early and use these as points of reference throughout theplanning process.Build Understanding & OwnershipDeepening the understanding of the broad issues, ideas, opportunities andconstraints is the first step toward building consensus and support. Throughcollaboration, participants gain a shared sense of conditions, trends, andprecedents; develop and test alternatives; work towards a plan with broadsupport and commitments for action.Reach Beyond the Usual PlayersA proactive approach is required to balance the interests of the generalpublic with those voiced by energetic advocates and individuals most directlyaffected by planned change. To provide multiple, meaningful opportunities forengagement, we seek opportunities to: DR+A
    • Community EngagementCOMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT 1) coordinate outreach efforts with community groups, service organizations, and media outlets; 2) balance high tech—web sites, video, and computer-generated simulations—with high touch strategies—workshops, briefings, interviews, storefront displays, and coffee klatches; 3) seek out groups and individuals to co-host events; 4) target outreach to under-represented constituencies; 5) hold meetings in comfortable, easily accessible places. Follow a “No Surprises” Ethic. Our team maintains an open door and open communication policy that seeks to allow all voices to be heard. It’s important to maintain open channels of communications— even with those least supportive of the effort, keep decision-makers and opinion leaders in the loop, and stay focused on finding “win-win” solutions.TOOLS FOR ENGAGEMENT:One of our team’s strengths is thinking outside the box and we utilize ahighly interactive and collaborative process for community participation andengagement. We believe that a mix of traditional and non-traditional outreachmethods are the key to engaging diverse populations to provide mass citizeninput. Gone are the days of simply putting dots on preconceived imageryand asking the populous to scribble their ideas on paper and leaving it to aconsultant to “translate that idea into a reality”. In planning for the future weneed to utilize a wide range of techniques that are truly participatory.Our approach creates an “open platform” through not only face to face meetings,interviews, town halls, and interactive charrettes , but also by incorporatinglistening platforms through social networking and on-site feedback. Firstdeveloped by web-based technology developers in an effort to simulate openplatform programs on the web at in-face meetings, this model has been adoptedby all facets of industry, through the “Unconference,” BarCamp, FooCamp,among other packaged approaches. Our team will blend the best of the openplatform model (both on- and off-line) with traditional marketing and communityinvolvement programs, in order to create a customized and appropriate model.In designing processes, we draw on our experience with the following traditionaland non-traditional tools:Traditional:AdvertisingInteractive Web SitesInterviews, Briefings, and Focus GroupsNewsletters, Brochures & Flyers.Planning Charrettes and WorkshopsProject Theming and LogosPublic DisplaysPublic Relations / Media RelationsSimulations and VisualizationsTown Hall MeetingNon-Traditional:Blogs and Social NetworkingCommunity Wide Interactive MeetingFeedback LoopsEmail and Text MessagingGuerilla SurveyingNtag TechnologyPod Casting DR+A
    • Sustainable CommunitiesSUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES DR+A’s Committment DR+A is committed to sustainability and it is an integral part of many of our projects. As a multidisciplinary firm our team offers a holistic approach to the planning and development of our projects. DR+A specialized LEED® and sustainable design consulting services offers clients practical and economical LEED® design solutions. As a member of the United States Green Building Council, DR+A has LEED® accredited professionals on staff. Having provided LEED® consulting services for a number of clients, DR+A has been involved with creative solutions pertaining to high energy efficiency, renewable energy, water efficiency, storm water design, construction waste management, recycled/re-used materials, indoor air quality and many other innovative measures. Our approach to integrating LEED® solutions into a project is straightforward and starts at the onset of the project. First, with the client, we explore the sustainable goals of the project and determine whether LEED® or other rating systems are desired to be utilized. During this, we also help the client understand the possibilities and where sustainable efforts can be maximized based on the project budget, building type, certification levels desired and other programmatic elements. Through this initial and clear understanding of the project’s site and program, solutions are developed naturally and are seamlessly integrated into the project. Depending on if a formal certification process is desired or not, documentation of LEED® efforts is established at this first stage of the process and continues through the life of the project. Ten Principles For Sustainable Communities... 1. FOSTER CONNECTIVITY Link land use, transportation, open space, and natural systems. 2. STREET NETWORK Provide an interconnected street grid and public open space network. 3. TRANSIT ORIENTED DESIGN Establish connections between various transit systems to allow for growth. 4. OPEN SPACE SYSTEM Create a hierarchy of open space typologies that encourage a broad range of activities. 5. COMMUNITY FORM Pedestrian friendly compact environments foster greater walkability, reduced vehicular trips, and a sense of community. 6. MIXED USE Promote mixed-use development that reflects live, work, and play environments. 7. ARCHITECTURAL FORM Plan for integration into the existing character of the area. 8. HUMAN SCALE / PEDESTRIAN ORIENTED Design as if people matter...buildings, streets, and open spaces must relate to the human scale. 9. “EYES ON THE STREET” Feeling safe is essential. “Eyes on the street” provides for interaction between neighbors, a sense of ownership of public spaces, and civic identity. 10. PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT Engage, involve, and participate. Bringing the public in early and often provides for openness, excitement, and ownership. DR+A
    • On Time On BudgetON TIME ON BUDGET Meeting and exceeding our clients’ expectations PROJECT SCHEDULE The DR+A Team understands that schedule is of utmost priority to the both our clents, as well as to the success of the project.To this end, the DR+A Team will work with you in crafting the appropriate schedule based upon the deÀned Ànal scope of services and anticipated meeting dates. ON TIME ON BUDGET The most important factor in the success of DR+A has been its ability to manage the total planning, design and construction process for projects of diverse sizes, typologies, scopes or locations. Along with our record of delivering projects on time and within budget, DR+A is committed to design excellence, client service and team approach. DR+A’s approach to meeting schedules and budgets is to require maximum communications between all team members and clearly understand and document the requirements and expectations of all team members. DR+A’s ability to manage this open dialogue is essential in not only meeting the schedule and budget requirements of a project, but also in meeting and exceeding our clients expectations. In addition, design alternatives must be developed to effectively evaluated development opportunities and so decisions can be made which allows for an orderly process to project design and development. Whether a project is developed under a standard or accelerated schedule, the design should allow for maximum Áexibility so future design solutions are not precluded. This can be done with little or no economic premium given the proper design team and process. We have used this system effectively over the years and are prepared to bring this experience to your project. DR+A
