Client: Whatcom County Parks and Recreation
Case Study: Several members of the Peak team led eleven public meetings to gather community input to inform the Whatcom County Comprehensive Parks, Recreation, and Open Space Plan update. This update was successfully adopted and included a robust community engagement effort.
Impact: Public input and sentiment from multiple meetings held around the County provided valuable information which helps determine future park master planning, facility design, and capital project priorities. A robust public input process also supported successful future grant preparation, long range strategic policy planning, and regulatory compliance.
Testimonial: “We have used Peak to assist us in facilitating community meetings for our Parks, Recreation and Open Space planning and for preparation of environmental assessments on park development projects. We have always found their staff to be professional, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. They have a solid understanding of our needs and were able to fully deliver services within the scope, schedule, and budget of the projects they’ve worked on.” Michael McFarlane, Whatcom County Parks and Recreation, Director
