Current Projects

SGU – The Runway Project

Working with leadership at the City of St. George, Harmony Public Involvement HPI) designed a Marketing and Public Involvement Plan to utilize during the closure of the St. George Regional Airport (SGU) for extensive repairs on a section of runway. These plans included branding, printed materials, development of project-specific database, Public Involvement at two Open Houses, Chamber of Commerce Presentation, planning and facilitation of an on-site Media Day during heavy construction, writing and creating weekly email updates to over 500 Stakeholders, and participation with the Project Marketing Team consisting of members from City of St. George, Skywest, Greater Zion and SGU. Other Public Involvement tasks included SGU Facebook Posts, updates to SGU Website, participation with the Construction Team at weekly meetings, and management of messaging throughout the project.

SR-31; Fairview to Junction 264

Harmony Public Involvement (HPI) was brought on-board to lead the Public Involvement efforts to a unique set of Stakeholders utilizing SR-31. The road is used by coal and timber trucks and recreationists. A Public Involvement Plan was developed working closely with the UDOT Project Manager. The Public Involvement featured early interactions with the coal companies, timber companies, Fairview City and Mount Pleasant City. In addition, this winding, steep road was narrowed to one lane controlled with Traffic Signals for several weeks. Communicating this impact was done through extensive PI and a targeted Direct Mail Piece.

SR-10; Ferron, Castle Dale, Huntington

This project involved creating a Public Involvement Plan, preparing and facilitating presentations for the City Councils in each town and outreach to all Stakeholders adjacent to SR-10. Part of the PI Plan was a Direct Mail Piece outlining the scope of the project, days of construction and contact information. The project was branded using UDOT Level III design. Special attention was given to the various local celebrations during construction and making sure the project schedule accommodated these. City Leadership and Stakeholder coordination in each city was key as access to properties was impacted at various times during construction. 

Leeds Main Street

Harmony Public Involvement (HPI) took a proactive approach to this impactful project. The construction time on this project was short but required heightened Stakeholder interaction to communicate the schedule and impacts. HPI managed and facilitated meetings with the City Council, Mayor Wayne and Peggy at Leeds City Offices. With the speed of the project, the contractor had requested NO on-street parking during the three critical weeks of roadway construction. The HPI Team engaged with Stakeholders to inform of this situation and encourage compliance. We discovered lots of kind people in Leeds. 

SR-12 Bryce Canyon

For this project, we teamed up with Somers-Jaramillo and Associates. They were the lead PI firm, and Harmony Public Involvement (HPI) assisted with local support. We contributed input on messaging and the Public Involvement Plan. Our team performed Stakeholder outreach and education from Henrieville to Parowan to Hatch, UT and prepared documentation regarding Stakeholder concerns and input.  Along with Somers-Jaramillo, we facilitated a successful Open House in Tropic. 

I-15 Exit 16 Partnering, I-15 400 S Underpass Partnering, & I-15 MP 37-42 Climbing Lane Partnering

Harmony Public Involvement (HPI) was contracted by UDOT to conduct Partnering on these projects. HPI worked closely with the each UDOT Resident Engineer and contractor to customize each Partnering to address unique concerns. Partnering activities included team-building exercises, exploring possible impacts to the public, safety, conflict management, developing trust and effective communication channels, delivering a project completed on-time and on-budget and creating an enjoyable work environment. 

PLPCO Open Houses Richfield, Manti, Cedar City

Harmony Public Involvement (HPI) was contacted by Somers-Jaramillo & Associates to join their team on this unique project. This was our first project as a company, and it required assisting and facilitating Open Houses to gather input regarding Utah’s Roadless Rule Petition through the Public Lands Policy Coordinating Office.

What People Say About Us

 “I have worked with Lisa Beck as a Public Involvement person for many years. The projects that Mike and Lisa have personally worked on have had far fewer problems than with any other Public Involvement people. They give them prompt notice, updated information with flyers, social media, and internet sites connections, along with the personal interaction that people really need.  I would highly recommend using Lisa and Mike to help with any Highway Construction projects where public involvement is needed.”

— Ray Bentley, PE

“I have had the pleasure of utilizing the public involvement services provided by Lisa Beck and Michael Beck on a road reconstruction project lined with homes on both sides. The work of Lisa and Michael proved invaluable to the City, minimizing the amount of time required by City Staff to deal with problems and complaints that invariably come with a project like this. Many residents commented to me about how much they appreciated their interaction with these two individuals. I hope to be able to work with Lisa and Michael in the future.”

Arthur LeBaron, PE, PLS, CFM, Hurricane City Engineer

I have worked with Lisa and her team on multiple UDOT projects and have always come away impressed with how she communicates with the stakeholders on a project. She is always attentive to the needs of the project team along with those impacted by the construction happening around them.

Gary Talbot, Project Manager Sunroc, Sunroc

Harmony Public Involvement (HPI) was a dream to work with during our four-month runway closure project at the St. George Regional Airport. Lisa and her team worked closely with the City and the Airport to set up special social media information outlets to educate and inform the public in an entertaining and non-confrontational way about a project that was very unpopular and potentially a PR nightmare.  HPI attended weekly safety and coordination meetings during the project to ensure that they were current with the latest construction updates and safety issues. At the end of the project, HPI coordinated an open house for the public that was instrumental in turning the public’s feelings about the project from negative to an overall positive experience. HPI will be a partner again in our future projects.
