CONCUR conducted a year-long strategic planning diagnostic and convening process for the Ford Ord (Monterey, CA) Restoration Advisory Board (RAB), a citizen-agency group convened to review proposed environmental cleanup activities at the sprawling former Army base.

CONCUR’s work focused on a few main tasks. First, we prepared an extensive issue audit that detailed key findings and overarching recommendations related to the RAB’s mission, membership, procedures, and information sharing. We then convened a series of facilitated meetings with the RAB to engage CONCUR’s recommendations and findings. Finally, we provided strategic planning advice to the EPA on designing effective public participation processes.
