Engaging in Dialogue

Building community relationships
Because community dialogue helps establish and maintain ongoing relationships, we start a dialogue with residents early in the project development process. We work to:
  • Establish a cooperative relationship with the community
  • Listen to our neighbors and landowners
  • Share information
  • Ensure our proposal fits the interests and priorities of the community
  • Maintain an ongoing relationship with the community long after our projects are completed

Sharing information
In addition to talking with residents, we meet with:
  • Elected and appointed officials
  • Civic associations
  • Environmental groups
  • Other community organizations

We share new information, as it becomes available, through a combination of:
  • Community visits
  • Public meetings
  • Open houses
  • Local media relationships
