Session(s):

Six Feet and Beyond – Fostering Public Participation During the COVID-19 Era »

The difference between a good plan and a great plan is often community buy-in. Since 2020 the newly implemented COVID-19 restrictions severely impacted the usual public outreach efforts which consisted of hosting varied in-person events. This session highlights several methods (with tips and tricks) we used to get the public involved in projects over the last 2 years. It is our hope that these examples can be helpful in getting meaningful interactions even during challenging times. We believe public participation can still thrive through the pandemic and we can be even better for it.
