Biko Associates, Inc

Biko Associates believes participation from the community is fundamental to successful planning. Because ideas and assumptions formalized early in a planning process shape the outcomes of planning studies, early participation by community residents is essential and initial project ideas and assumptions should be developed by the people affected by project outcomes.

Biko Associates provides the following consultant services to non-profit organizations, neighborhood groups, communities, towns, and small cities:

"People must not just give in to the hardship of life. People must develop a hope. People must develop some form of security to be together to look at their problems, and people must, in this way, build up their community."
-Stephen Bantu Biko
