The City of Spearfish utilized the services of Ohlson Lavoie Collaborative to develop a community waterpark. Ohlson Lavoie Collaborative collaborated with us to initiate the process with meetings, community interviews, committee and council meetings to ensure that our community was ready and that we knew what we should anticipate for our future venture. Their partnership and approach led to the success of our community members needs being captured and addressed. Ohlson Lavoie was very attentive and made things very inclusive and informative meeting the needs of our City Council, Mayor, community and staff. Their work is very thorough and assisted us to align our goals, revenue projections, programs and staffing for our Recreation Center and Waterpark to meet the public’s needs. We will use their services again for future projects.
