Town meetings are your best and sometimes only opportunity to address and alleviate neighbor concerns before starting work in the community. Providing honest, accurate and easy-to-understand information at this stage can go a long way toward minimizing complaints later.
At these meetings, you can show local officials and the community the plans for your upcoming project, as well as the safeguards you plan to use to protect the surrounding homes and businesses. Property owners will also want, and deserve, answers to their questions. You can provide the “technical” answers – such as blasting schedules, cubic feet of rock to be removed, warning whistles, truck routes, and how long the blasting phase of the project will last. But most property owners will also have questions like this:
- How will the blasting affect my house?
- Will I feel the blasting?
- What about damage potential?
- How can you be sure that blasting is safe?
- Do the limits apply to my house?
Clear information, presented in a simple and concise way is critical to addressing these concerns. GeoSonics/Vibra-Tech’s professionals have the knowledge and public relations experience to help you answer community questions and concerns in a technical, honest and reassuring manner.
