Elements of Effective Engagement

In November 2014, Rebuild by Design asked community leaders, design and planning experts, and government officials to discuss their experiences in creating and implementing large-scale infrastructure projects—and to highlight key strategies that can continue to make government-community collaboration effective.

This document distills their responses into specific themes and tactics. The governments of NYS, NJ, NYC, and CT can use these as they continue to develop the Rebuild by Design projects using the collaborative framework upon which the competition was based.
