Paul Schissler Associates, Inc
Community development planner
Paul Schissler Associates, Incorporated, a public interest consultancy, has worked for over thirty years on Pacific Northwest public interest projects, helping neighborhoods, communities, cities, counties and regional cooperative efforts. PSAI has helped to design and implement a wide variety of programs and projects including community facilities, worker-owned housing, public utility systems and farm land protection.
PSAI contracts as a community development and technical assistance provider, offering benefits from the field of planning, community development and grantsmanship on behalf of governments and nonprofit agencies. Depending on the project, PSAI teams up with others so that projects gain from the expertise they need and from better odds that multiple layers of impact will accrue, sometimes delightfully unexpectedly. PSAI gravitates to the complex problems where good ideas might move things forward toward more fair and equitable systems, respectful of place and striving to make good things better. “We all do better when we all do better.”
Paul is old enough to remember when Bellingham Community Recycling incorporated as a Washington corporation, having launched the first curbside recycling program in Washington State. BCR evolved into Resources for Sustainable Communities, and Paul has never been more proud of the work that RE Sources has undertaken on behalf of its members and the region.
