Services // Public Process
In a built environment dominated by sprawl, effective, community placemaking often requires the leveraging of both public and private resources. Over the past decade and a half, cities from around the country have successfully utilized Public/Private Partnerships (P3s) to create ambitious, large-scale projects that are otherwise unachievable.
When built on a foundation of mutual trust, open communication, flexibility, and a long-term commitment, P3s enable communities to create vibrant, cherished places that enhance their city’s value and longevity. As expert facilitators of P3s, H&A assists aspiring partners in successfully implementing these agreements.
Our proven process is built on five key principles:
- Build a common vision
- Clearly define the public benefits
- Base decisions on local socio-economic realities
- Keep the community in the loop
- Stay flexible
