VRPA is a subconsultant to Nelson Nygaard and is completing the public scoping tasks for the project.  VRPA was responsible for implementing a strategic outreach campaign that reached out to the broader community not only to educate, but to listen as well.  VRPA has identified relevant stakeholders and created a database to ensure continued contact with these stakeholders throughout the course of the project.  VRPA identified appropriate outreach strategies for the Metropolitan Bakersfield region and assisted with coordination of steering committee and supporting stakeholders meetings.  VRPA designed a project logo as well as project fact sheets
