Dr. Constance L. McCart

Washington Township (NJ) Historic Preservation Commission

The Washington Township Historic Preservation Commission has been fortunate to work with Donna Ann Harris this past year to develop a plan to improve heritage tourism at our site, The Olde Stone House Village.  Ms. Harris provided a thorough and insightful product that provides us with just what we needed. She consulted with us at every turn and made adjustments and suggestions until we had a plan we felt we could use,and that the New Jersey Historic Trust felt would be "highly useful" in helping us interpret our site to the public.  Enjoyed working with you, Donna!

Executive Director Main Street Siloam Springs Inc.

 "Donna is a tenacious advocate for downtowns across the country. Thanks to her consultation services, we now have a 5-year plan that will help keep our organization accountable and focused on intentional strategic growth. Her experience in the Main Street network and years of interfacing with multiple communities at different stages of growth provided invaluable wisdom and confidence to guide our Main Street program forward. The thing I appreciated most about her consultation style was how she worked alongside us and guided us through the process; she allowed us the freedom to make final decisions and take ownership of the purpose and content of our strategic plan. The strategic plan was not a cookie-cutter document, but something organic that we built together that will give us an anchor as we evolve the next several years."

Stephanie Michel

Executive Director North Fifth Street Revitalization Project Inc.

Donna worked with our organization over a few months to help us identify new board members we needed and helped us with job descriptions for an orientation she hosted. We followed up with a Board training for all of our new Board members, which she facilitated, and did an outstanding job.
