The community will support what they value and believe in.

It’s so much more than bricks and mortar
Our Community Engagement Model is unique to Hollis + Miller and is the important foundation of a successful bond issue or capital campaign. We believe it’s crucial to engage key stakeholders in the earliest stages of visioning. Then take them with us through the master plan and budgeting phases, building momentum toward the potential bond or capital campaign. This process gives community members the opportunity to voice their concerns and contribute their ideas, encouraging them to gain ownership of the outcome.
We will be your community’s number one advocate to help create awareness of and, more importantly, ownership in the vision among your stakeholders. No matter the size of your organization, our planning model has a proven success rate. This is the beginning of what we call the co-creation process.
Engaging Communities of All Sizes
Hollis + Miller has been involved in many school district bond issues and several capital campaigns since our founding in 1950, varying in size from districts and schools with 400 students to 28,000 students. Over 90% of these campaigns have passed on the first ballot.
A Few Examples of Successful Bond Issues + Capital Campaigns:
- Kansas City Christian School
- Pleasanton School District
- St. Michael the Archangel High School
- The Barstow School
- University of Saint Mary Berkel Hall
- Avila University Thompson Hall
Holton School District had not built a new school since the 1960s. The District sought to replace the existing Colorado Elementary School with a facility that better served the growing needs of its students and staff and incorporated 21st century learning into its learning environments. The new facility merged both Colorado Elementary School and Central Elementary School into one building for better collaboration between both students and teachers.
