Open for Business
Last year the City of Spokane held a free workshop for business owners and managers located along the sites of planned street and utility construction projects, titled “Open for Business: Making the Best of Rough Road Construction.”
The workshop was a partnership between the City and the Greater Spokane Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA). PRSA members volunteered their time and expertise to help interested businesses.
The program covered:
- How to get information on local projects and provide feedback to construction engineers.
- What to expect when construction begins.
- Developing business planning strategies to ready your company for street construction.
- Survival tips for making it through the construction project.
- Developing communication, staying on message, staying positive and using creative promotion and business strategies.
- Post-construction ideas to get your business back on track.
The workshop was videotaped by CityCable 5.
In addition to the presentations at the workshop, participants received a copy of the Surviving Construction Toolkit. The toolkit was updated in April 2012.
