Hoefer Wysocki Participates in United Way Week!

Our amazing staff participated in our annual United Way Week for the ninth year in a row. Our theme this year was Cartoons and as a firm we raised more than $12,900! United Way’s work is focused on the building blocks for a good life including education, income and health. This year we decided to focus on our nation’s veterans.

The office was divided up into five teams, all of which were themed and consisted of Nickelodeon, Disney, Warner Brothers, Pixar, DreamWorks, and Cartoon Network. Each day teams competed against one another for participation points and ended the week with a costume contest. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed contributing to a wonderful cause!

Hoefer Wysocki is Awarded 2015 Outstanding Plan for City of Mexico Comprehensive Plan

The City of Mexico, Missouri, was honored with the American Planning Association (APA) Missouri Chapter 2015 Outstanding Plan Award at the APA Quad States Conference in October. The plan provides the City with a working guide that empowers the community to actively pursue initiatives to accomplish long-term community goals.

“Cities across the country are facing infrastructure, facility and political challenges,” noted Bruce Slagle, City Manager of Mexico. “The challenges we have ahead are many, demanding and most certainly will be trying. 

To meet these challenges, we must grow our economy, create better jobs and deliver services in new, creative and collaborative ways. During the development of our City’s Comprehensive Plan we received priceless input and insights from citizens. The City of Mexico’s future success will ultimately be achieved through on-going communication, cooperation and a long-term commitment towards a successful and sustainable community plan.”

“The plan represents a beginning – success will ultimately be achieved through continued communication, cooperation and long-term commitme­nt by the Mexico community in moving towards sustainable community building efforts,” commented Brian Hamilton, AICP, Hoefer Wysocki Architecture’s Director of Urban Design & Planning and the plan’s Project Manager. The collaborative consulting team included Dr. Troy L. Nash, HDFP, Vice President, Principal at Newmark Grubb Zimmer; and John Forrester, PE of Olsson Associates.
