River Street Planning & Development


River Street specializes in facilitating public processes and identifying a consensus vision that can be shared and supported by diverse stakeholders. Techniques used include focus groups, visioning workshops, charrettes, community meetings, and focus groups. These techniques are adapted to help communities reach community consensus on land use alternatives, objectives, strategies, and planning solutions.

Through confident facilitation, clear accessible graphics and creative use of new technologies and techniques we are able to engage diverse audiences and focus community energy on unique assets and challenges. We regularly provide training, strategic planning and mediation services that strengthen local ability to implement complex community revitalization initiatives. River Street has a growing practice in land use dispute resolution.
