Working Together on Project

Up Your
Strategic Game

A good project has public support but without the proper messaging, materials, and outreach it can seem like an uphill battle to achieve it. We work with clients to extend the public understanding of what their project brings to the community, address key challenges, and work towards a better awareness of why a project can enhance our collective future.

Highway 101: Carpinteria to Santa Barbara

Updating a 1950s freeway in Coastal California is a challenge. Working collaboratively with 100,000 neighbors, five distinct communities, and the traveling public is no easy feat. We work with SBCAG, Caltrans, the County of Santa Barbara, and the Cities of Santa Barbara and Carpinteria to educate the public, establish a neighborly approach to addressing issues, and make it easy to understand the benefits of this complex, multiyear, multimodal project.

Cabrillo Blvd Bridge Replacement

Multiyear bridge replacements on a busy waterfront draw a lot of attention. This project had roughly twenty years of planning and input before construction started. We worked with the City of Santa Barbara to set expectations, inform locals and visitors, and work closely with local businesses during pre-construction and construction to ensure a smooth, appreciated project that benefits habitat areas, water flow, and access for pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers.

Maintaining a local culture while expanding a freeway overcrossing can be complicated. Agoura Hills residents were deeply concerned about losing their sense of community with this expansion. We worked closely with the City of Agoura Hills, Caltrans, neighbors, and local business owners to create a baseline of understanding prior to construction, a smooth process during construction, and educational materials before and after construction to highlight the benefits for longtime residents and newly emerging bike enthusiasts.

Community Master Plans & Marketing

Casa Dorinda

Sometimes a refresh is exactly what is needed. We worked with Casa Dorinda to rebrand their community by highlighting the elegance of the original estate and infusing a forward-looking energy. The reinvigorated spirit carried into our work on their Campus Master Plan through resident education, neighborhood outreach, and public hearings. The result was a project without neighborhood opposition in Montecito.

Valle Verde Retirement

Expansion in Santa Barbara is always challenging, even for an established community looking to update their existing campus. We worked hand-in-hand with residents to establish the baseline of what a successful Master Plan meant to them. Then we worked with neighbors over a multiyear period to gain approval (unanimous votes from review commissions) for campus enhancements and new homes.

Having established a successful partnership, our team has continued to provide marketing support for more than a decade.

Sometimes the planning process gets bogged down. After decades of fighting, there was still a desire to enhance pedestrian access and safety in this beautiful area of Santa Barbara. Our team worked with engineers, planners, neighbors, and community activists to show how different options could affect the area.
