Stakeholder Engagement Services

We provide a full range of engagement services that support your project goals.

Consulting with stakeholders on a proposed project, service, policy, or program is often a key project task.  The central question clients often ask us is, how can we do this effectively and efficiently?

Since 1998, we've worked with dozens of private firms (including investor-owned companies), public agencies, and nonprofit clients who are seeking to engage in the most productive ways with community members or core project stakeholders in support of project goals.

We provide clients like you with customized, specific support that's focused on accomplishing your objectives.  


Waterford’s engagement services include:

  • Engagement strategy design and management, including timeline, milestones, and deliverables

  • Engagement coordination, planning and facilitation, including public meetings, community presentations, online engagement, charrettes, public meetings and hearings, advisory panels and working group meetings, focus groups, stakeholder interviews, open houses & info fairs, public comment tracking, and more

  • Stakeholder information and awareness programs, such as flyers, fact sheets, website creation and maintenance, media relations, emails, and social media

  • Reporting, including meeting summaries, stakeholder analysis, public input reports, and others as needed


A skilled and experienced team with expertise in engagement can make all the difference in project success.  We have more than 20 years of experience designing and leading engagement projects, including land use, regional planning, parks, infrastructure, watersheds, sewers, stormwater, transit, transportation, clean energy, utilities, conservation, forestry, and placemaking through sustainable tourism and cultural tourism.
