What: Leveraging Public Works for Outreach & Education
Where: City of Maryland Height’s Center (City Hall) at 11911 Dorsett Rd
When: 10:00 a.m. to Noon
Every community relies on Public Works; however, most citizens do not understand how Public Works
affect them personally. By leveraging public outreach and education strategies and developing multi-agency
collaborations, you can help community members become more aware of your agency, the indelible
connection between Public Works and local history; and how their investments in Public Works, community
infrastructure, and related engineering & design projects continue to improve daily life.
During this Click, Listen, & Learn, you will gain a brief exposure to different methods of engaging
community audiences and a more in-depth look at the opportunities created by Public Works exhibits.
Infrastructure is itself an “exhibit” that can be capitalized upon to facilitate public learning. This session will
explore the potential of Public Works projects for education and outreach. Presenters will cover practical
aspects such as the pursuit of funding, selecting appropriate delivery vehicles, assembling the right team, and
connecting to local audiences.
Any Public Works agency can benefit from positive Public Relations, and a well-designed education or
outreach component can provide this in your community. Join us to learn how!
