SUPPLEMENTAL SERVICES

WCP provides frequently needed supplementary services that factor into the successful completion of our planning and environmental consulting projects.  The flexibility built into our methods and procedures allows us to adapt to changing scenarios.

An important feature of most planning and environmental work is public outreach. From providing the public with information about upcoming projects in their community to soliciting public comments on environmental remediation efforts, WCP can provide our clients with complete public outreach services. WCP understands and appreciates the value of public involvement and strives to ensure that the community and stakeholders who need to be informed on specific projects are reached.
 
WCP offers geographic information systems (GIS) and global positioning system (GPS) mapping support, graphics and video production, assistance with permit applications, and other services depending on our clients' needs.
PUBLIC MEETING AND RESTORATION ADVISORY BOARD SUPPORT, FORMER WAIKOLOA MANEUVER AREA
 

WCP performed a variety of community outreach and public education services including continued organizational support of the Former Waikoloa Maneuver Area Restoration Advisory Board.  These efforts were in support of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' continuing ordnance survey and clearance activities in the Waikoloa and Waimea areas on the island of Hawaii. Public meeting and outreach support ranged from coordinating with the Corps' project manager for project information, scheduling, and points of contact to preparing informational documents and packages including public notices in general-circulation newspapers, meeting agendas, meeting minutes, videos of meeting proceedings and site visits, slides and graphics, press releases, and informational static displays. WCP designed, prepared, and distributed educational materials appropriate for community meetings and area residents, combining them in a package oriented towards instruction on the site history, the potential health and safety hazards posed by unexploded ordnance in the area, and procedures to follow if such an item is encountered.

PLANNING AND PRODUCTION OF INSTITUTIONAL CONTROLS FOR PUBLIC HELATH AND SAFETY AT FORMER WAIKOLOA MANEUVER AREA/NANSAY COMBAT RANGE

 

WCP provided project support to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in its ongoing efforts to promote public awareness and community relations related to UXO safety and the Corps continuing ordnance clearance activities in the area. WCP planned and produced institutional control material to promote public awareness of potential hazards from UXO such as warning signs, an educational health and safety video, informational brochures and pamphlets, school planners, activity coloring books, bookmarks, colorable iron-on transfers, luggage tags, and school supplies.

WETLAND IDENTIFICATION, DELINEATION, AND GIS MAPPING AT PEARL HARBOR

 

WCP along with AECOS, its biological resources partner, were tasked with updating a 1999 USACE wetland study that had delineated 126.96 acres as “Jurisdictional.” The current study evaluated 10 locations at Pearl Harbor, and updated the Navy’s wetland spatial datasets.  WCP provided the GIS services for this effort. The spatial datasets were delivered as an ArcGIS geodatabase and satisfied the following requirements: 1) spatial data delivered in a vector planimetric perspective; 2) spatial data topology delivered in a “GIS-ready” state with closed polygons and corrected undershoots/overshoots; 3) adherence to Tri-Service SDS/RSIP-Link Layering and file-naming convention; 4) adherence to the Tri-Service SDS geodatabase standard; 5) spatial data geo-referenced and projected in WGS84 UTM 4N zone; and 6) metadata compiled in compliance with Federal Geographic Data Committee Standards and the RSIP-Link metadata requirements.

HISTORIC PRESERVATION COMMANDING GENERAL'S LECTURE SERIES

 

WCP was tasked with assisting U.S. Army Garrison, Hawaii in its efforts to enhance awareness of Hawaiian culture and history amongst its active-duty personnel. Responsibilities included consulting with USAG-HI to coordinate the lectures and presentations; furnishing services, supplies, materials, labor, and transportation for participants; and providing video documentation of each presentation. Presentations included lectures on the annexation of the Hawaiian Kingdom by the United States, the evolution of music in Hawaiian culture, the rise of modern Hawaii and its place in the international community, the ancient Hawaiian fighting art of lua, the spiritual art form of hula, the art of Hawaiian and Polynesian tattooing, and the ancestral linkage of Polynesian storytelling. Other presentations included musical performances, hula and other forms of Polynesian dance, and traditional Hawaiian chant.
