Foursquare ITP assisted with the development of the framework for the planning process and communications strategy to guide the revision of Montgomery County, Maryland’s iconic General Plan. This work included providing input into facilitated discussions with Montgomery County’s Planning Director and senior staff to develop the overarching structure to guide the planning process as well as key questions that will be explored with the public throughout the process. Our team provided support for internal stakeholder involvement in framework development by leading interviews with a range of staff that included a wide variety of County departments, Montgomery County Public Schools, and Montgomery College. We also provided input into the development of a communications strategy, including identifying key audiences, issues of concern, and the best way to reach them. We assisted in identifying best practices for inclusive outreach that effectively engages traditionally hard-to-engage groups including minorities, limited English proficient individuals, and low-income individuals.
