As part of a continued community engagement initiative, PWSA conducted a Business Development Series beginning in May and concluding in June 2022. The series aimed to provide more information about PWSA services and regulations to small and historically marginalized business owners, building managers, developers, consultants, engineering firms, and contractors. We designed each educational session to bring awareness around recent policy updates, new regulations, available resources, and technology processes to make our systems easier to navigate. PWSA staff members focused on our most common touchpoints and roadblocks for commercial customers.
We welcome feedback on the Business Development Series through a survey designed to gather input for future sessions.
