Cook + Schmid provides outreach and community relations for government agencies and public entities. Whether you need to build support for projects, challenge NIMBYism, or minimize disruptions to residents, we can help. Our team includes IAP2-trained outreach experts as well as seasoned facilitators who know how to engage the public in meaningful dialogue. In our experience, opposition is often based on misinformation and poor communication. We help clients proactively get accurate information into the hands of residents to build credibility and trust.
Note: NIMBY stands for “Not In My Back Yard,” and IAP2 stands for “International Association for Public Participation.”
