Through extensive collaboration with a diverse range of stakeholders, including community members, experts, and decision-makers, the Land, Water, Sky, and Natural Infrastructure Plan lays out a vision for preserving and enhancing the natural systems that define the Hill Country. Asakura Robinson played a key role in the development of thoughtful strategies to engage community members across 18 counties. We facilitated a range of interactive platforms, including bilingual focus groups, virtual open houses, and committee meetings, to ensure diverse perspectives were heard throughout the planning process. The team also utilized a hybrid approach to offer in-person and virtual activities to bolster feedback. The online community survey provided feedback from 2800+ respondants that helped inform the mapping process and identify priorities for action. Our team also assisted with the development of the planning report, creating informative graphics that effectively conveyed complex information about natural infrastructure. These visuals illustrated key aspects of the plan, including engagement processes and mapping techniques, allowing stakeholders to grasp the project’s scope and impact at a glance.
