About K&A

We inform, educate and resolve issues to move communities forward.

Katz & Associates (K&A)  specializes in strategic communication, public involvement and community relations to advance essential projects. Our firm is comprised of nationally recognized public outreach experts in water resources, transportation, environmental planning, private sector development and land use. Our specialists combine their backgrounds in communications, journalism, sociology, public affairs, political science, public policy and environmental sciences to effectively translate highly technical information into language understandable to a variety of audiences. The majority of our clients are public entities implementing large infrastructure and environmental initiatives. We also work with private developers seeking to entitle and build housing or commercial projects, and with organizations and groups planning major civic or community events.

Founded in 1986, K&A is a certified small and woman-owned business enterprise. We are headquartered in San Diego, with offices in Los Angeles and San Francisco and a statewide team of more than 35 professionals. We have supported projects across the U.S. and internationally, working with special districts, municipalities, privately owned utilities, local, state and federal agencies and regional coalitions.
