We're committed to ensuring everyone can be included in the conversation.
Barney & Worth develops strategies and communications tools that provide equitable information access so everyone has the opportunity to participate in the decisions impacting their community. Some of the services we provide clients:
City of Independence Visioning
Measures to improve access to all community members included Spanish translation services at public meetings and translation of all materials including the online survey. Sign language interpretation was also provided at the Town Hall event.
Salem Riverfront Park Master Plan
For those who do not have access to computers, the survey was available in paper format at specified locations and by request. To encourage participation by all park users, activities at the open house were designed to engage children.
Portland Harbor Pre-Remedial Design
All public materials were designed to be ADA accessible, following EPA policies. Specific measures taken included increasing the font sizes on figures and providing accurate and complete captions for all illustrations.
Willamette Water Supply Program
To broaden the reach of the project and engage ratepayers, information displays were taken out on the road – to farmers markets, community events and high school classrooms. Other local government public information officers were also given briefings so they could be champions of the project as well.
Bend Newport Corridor
A virtual open house was designed to allow people to participate on their own schedule. No additional applications are needed. Opportunities to provide feedback and receive a call from the project team are included on the page. The site is ADA compliant and easy to maneuver from a phone or computer.
