Public dispute resolution draws on the skills of negotiation, mediation, and facilitation to address issues that involve a neighborhood, a town or city, a county, or statewide policies. Assistance is available for city/city and city/county conflicts, or matters involving state agencies and local government. Contact us for help as you consider your options, assess the possibility of using a mediator or facilitator, and for assistance with finding an impartial third party. Particular situations can be addressed confidentially by phone.
