ERBA Inc. created and led community engagement sessions with diverse groups on a variety of issues. The following is a partial list of prior ERBA Inc. projects:

Capitolo Playground Field Renovation Project:  
The Capitolo Playground Field Renovation Project, 900 Federal Street, Philadelphia, PA 19147, was led by ERBA Inc., as part of the Philadelphia Rebuild Initiative Project. ERBA, Inc. held three community meetings to achieve the following objectives:

  1. To inform the Capitolo Playground community about the project scope (redesign the playground’s sports fields and make renovations to the playground’s fencing, benches, field lighting, trees, and shrubbery).
  2. Solicit community opinions and ideas to guide the design team’s work.
  3. To generate community enthusiasm and engagement, as the project progressed.

ERBA began the community engagement process, by meeting with the Capitolo Playground Advisory Council and obtaining their enthusiastic support for the project.

The second meeting drew more than seventy neighbors, and the final meeting drew up to one hundred and twenty-five, men, women, and children. During the week, all meetings were held in the evenings.
The Capitolo Playground Field Renovation Project was a huge success thanks to ERBA’s community engagement efforts.
