Strategic Communications Experience:
Land Use. Transportation. Facilitation.
Strategic communications requires tact and tenacity, passion and professionalism, and knowing when to use a bullhorn and when to whisper. It requires an understanding of the latest communications technologies, and the experience to know what works when.
Equally important, strategic communications in the land use and transportation sectors requires an outsider’s perspective and an insider’s knowledge of the political process and policy issues management.
There’s No Short-cut to Public Sector Experience
While newcomers offer fast talk and glossy websites, the truth is there’s just no short-cut to experience. Over the last 25 years, we’ve worked on some of the nation’s most high-profile regional planning and transportation projects. In fact, we’ve been around long enough to see these often decades-long projects come to fruition. From the construction of I-95 HOV extensions, to I-495 HOT Lanes, Dulles Corridor Rail, to the Intercounty Connector, and the I-66 widening, we’ve worked in the fast lane and for the long haul. Explore a sampling of Travesky & Associates public sector project experience.
On-the-Ground Experience in the Private Sector.
Few areas in communications are as challenging to navigate as land use. We’ve provided land use consultation services for corporate clients and non-profit organizations, such as private schools, churches, and synagogues. We understand the project-specific complexities and sensitivities: the who, what, when, where and why. Major clients have included ConocoPhillips, Sunoco Corporation, Phillips66, Tosco Marketing Company, Mobil Oil Corporation, Tysons II - Galleria, Virginia Youth Soccer Association, Inc., Safeway, Inc., Aaron Rents, Inc., Prison Fellowship Ministries, Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada, Reston Presbyterian Church, and Congregation Beth Emeth. Explore a summary of our land use experience.
While constructing the Intercounty Connector (ICC) in suburban Maryland, special culvert passages were designed and installed along natural wildlife trails to sustain habitat connectivity. Designs include an oversized passage (12’ high) for larger mammals (such as deer), full aquatic and fish passages, and small animal passages include stone with varied water inverts.
Nearly 15 percent of the project budget is dedicated to environmental mitigation. (Travesky & Associates provides public outreach support for Contract B of the ICC project, including newsletters, public meetings and a variety of strategic communications programs.)
