We host public meetings, lecture series, town halls, panels, dinners and other civic engagement events to heighten dialogue around critical regional issues.
Forterra and partners facilitate discussions and develop practical plans for economic development in struggling communities. With the City of Aberdeen we engaged with a broad range of community members to create a vision for their downtown corridor.
Forterra and partners facilitate lead projects that support healthy communities, including discussions on active transportation and access to local food as well as leading walking and biking audits.
