Organize and coordinate a consultant team including clients and their representatives, Social Services and Health Facilities planners, gerontologists, design professionals, traffic engineers and governmental agency and utility company representatives to develop the Master Plan, prepare the necessary exhibits and present these to political advisers, prospective patrons, and to the Catholic Diocese in Los Angeles.
