We work to manage infrastructure projects to ensure clarity, and reduce risk through effective risk management .
Asset Management is a critical part of community development that goes beyond infrastructure. If you need help designing your asset management plan, call today! .
"When the Town of Kipling decided to undertake a housing assessment needs study, Lorri's knowledge and professionalism was able to secure the funding needed to see the project move ahead. It was a pleasure to work with her."
CAO of Town of Kipling
Welcome to Solomon~Matthewson Consulting and the Sustainability Project.
Our business is working with people to help them build the communities they love to live in.
We are the connectors, the money raisers, the researchers, the investment seekers and the dream builders. I believe supports to communities can, and should be tailored to the community; their needs, their gifts and their goals. Creativity, community engagement and accountability are an important part of the process.
There are hundreds of small towns, communities, villages and hamlets in our Prairie Provinces. These communities provide:
A highly valued quality of life
These towns support the workers who create much of our province's revenue.
I created the Sustainability Project as a means of providing supports to maintain these communities to grow and flourish. The people I've partnered with believe in the sustainability of our small towns as a vital part of the provincial economy. We believe:
1. Even the smallest community has value and the potential to create its own revenue.
2. Communities who create their own revenue have more choice in how they develop.
3. Our communities are important to the economic health and vitality of the larger province.
4. Supports can and should be tailored to the need.
5. Creativity and fun are an important part of the process.
6. That the people, non-profit organizations, business, both large and small, and government, both municipal, provincial and federal all have a role to play, and all are deserving of respect.
