Our comment and response management system, Confer, has successfully been used on a
wide variety of projects ranging from city, state, federal, transportation, EIS's, EA's, and more.
Confer has been used on many large projects that received hundreds of thousands of comments, as
well as smaller projects receiving hundreds of comments.
No matter what type of project you have, or the size, our software was built to handle it!
Below is a small sample of projects, representing the wide variety of projects that had 100% success using Confer!
City of Cupertino, California / Apple Campus 2 - EIS
This project is the redevelopment of approximately 176-acres in Cupertino California into a new headquarters
campus for Apple, Inc. that will seat 15,000 employees. The project site comprises buildings with office and research
and development uses which would be replaced as part of the proposed project. The campus would be self-contained and would
include office, research and development space, parking, employee amenities, and a central utility plant. In addition,
a segment of Pruneridge Avenue would be vacated by the City to allow for the development of a unified and secure campus.
As part of the project, Apple would also undertake changes to local roadways in the vicinity of the site.
The project would result in the demolition of all structures within the project site (consisting of approximately
2,657,000 square feet of building space) and the ultimate construction of 3,420,000 square feet of office, research,
and development uses; 245,000 square feet of auditorium, fitness center, and Valet Parking Reception uses; 92,000
square feet of utility plants; and parking and ancillary buildings (such as security receptions and landscape maintenance buildings).
Yellowstone National Park - Winter Use EIS
The Winter Use EIS evaluated eight alternatives, and identifies the Preferred Alternative as Alternative 8, a one-year plan to allow
over-snow vehicle use in the park for the winter, at the same levels (up to 318 commercially guided, best available technology
snowmobiles and 78 commercially guided snow coaches per day) that were allowed under the interim regulation in place.
Idaho National Laboratory - High Level Waste EIS
The High Level Waste EIS analyzed the potential environmental consequences of alternatives for managing high-level
waste (HLW) calcine, mixed transuranic waste/sodium bearing waste (SBW) and newly generated liquid
waste at the Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory (INEEL) in liquid and solid forms.
This EIS also analyzes alternatives for the final disposition of HLW management facilities at the INEEL
after their missions are completed.
Florida East Coast Railway Corridor - Alternatives Analysis
This project consisted of restoring intercity passenger rail service along nearly 350 miles of Florida's east
coast between Jacksonville and Miami via the existing Florida East Coast (FEC) railway, a connector track
(cross-over) to the existing South Florida Rail Corridor (SFRC) in either West Palm Beach via the Northwood
crossover or Miami via the 71 st Street crossover, and a small portion of the existing SFRC in and around Miami,
depending on which crossover is used. The northern terminus would be the existing Jacksonville Amtrak station,
with an ultimate terminus at the future Jacksonville Regional Transportation Center (JRTC).
The southern terminus would be at the Mami Central Station (MCS), which is a part of the Miami Intermodal
Center (MIC) project. The proposed passenger service would consist of two southbound and
two northbound trains per day, with a total trip time between Jacksonville and Miami of less than seven hours.
As a program of rail improvements, the project would use a phased approach to developing intercity
passenger rail service.
We're here to help you!
From private industry to local, state, and federal government, public involvement and public
participation are essential for communication. Whether your next public involvement project is
for a large nationwide environmental impact statement (EIS) or for a product or service available
from the private industry, Confer can help ensure success.
