community engagement strategies
Sage Vista is partnering with Owlized to offer our clients OWL® as part of our suite of innovative outreach strategist to build trust, foster inclusivity, and reduce delay. Our team brings decades experience inside government agencies leading projects and studies facing difficult technical and political issues combined with new technology that significantly increases the number of data points available to decision makers. OWL is a location-aware virtual reality kiosk that shows visitors the future or history of a place and collects public input. A revolutionary, 360-degree audio-visual platform, OWL enables users to look forward or backward in time, respond to survey questions, and leave audio comments. Public agencies, historic districts, and industry leaders are deploying OWL virtual reality kiosks and mobile apps to share information on options under consideration to increase awareness and to tell stories that excite and engage the public.
Sarah assumed leadership of an unfocused, floundering legacy project and deftly clarified its critical challenges. She worked with the Water District to assess outstanding engineering and cost issues, which she then framed and summarized into clear policy alternatives. She expertly led our Citizens Advisory Committee through a difficult decision-making process, encouraging full participation while reaching an actionable conclusion within our allotted time. Sarah's potent combination of professional and personal skills restored our faith in the system.
