What We Do


We live in the digital age, the age of Facebook, the age when a presidential campaign survives on Twitter and where a website such as LinkedIn is the premier networking market in the business world. Campaigning has also changed with the times, building support has entered the technological age and has been at the forefront with many new innovations. One thing that has not changed, when you are facing a governmental body that will cast a vote effecting your businesses future, you need to win that vote.

It has become easier for opponents to share information, gather petition signatures and demonstrate their opposition to a development. NIMBY groups now share information coast to coast, if one group was successful in stopping your business from expanding in North Carolina, anywhere you wish to go in the future the local NIMBY group will be contacting that North Carolina group asking them how they did it, taking their ideas, incorporating their strategy. River Landing Solutions, (RLS) has an answer for all that, let us explain.

GRASSROOTS CONSULTING

How do you know if you are making progress, that you have the correct strategy in place and if you have chosen the right people, do you rally want to wait until the final vote to measure your progress?

REGULATORY DECISIONS

NIMBY opposition is no longer restricted to land use issues, the groups have become empowered; especially as social media takes over as the mainstream way to communicate. The Regulatory process in the state and federal agencies can take months if not years to complete. Through our years of experience, we have seen internal personal agendas come to light within a government agency.

DIGITAL STRATEGY

In 2016, every campaign be it electoral or regulatory and land use requires the latest up to date digital campaign strategy and social media. The groups that oppose your development application will be using it and using it effectively. If you do not use it, you are starting with a handicap. Social media has become the predominant method of getting your message out to the public and for that public to provide feedback.

POLITICAL ASSESSMENTS

Most companies spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on land options, environmental studies, test drilling and market testing, all worthy expenditures. But in 2016, when it is just as likely that local opposition and local political pressure will kill or at best significantly delay your project, why would you not conduct a political assessment as well.
