Development Assistance, Lake Tahoe (CA)-Northern Nevada (September,
2006). Served as a member of a Sustainable Design Assessment
Team (SDAT) for the American Institute of Architects (AIA),
Communities by Design program. Conducted a week-long charrette
designed to help the communities of Lake Tahoe, Truckee,
Reno, and Carson City assess their strengths and weaknesses
with regards to water resources, land-use, transportation,
energy, and economic development. Conducted a series of
workshops to develop the background on issues, seek stakeholder
input on core values and important concerns for the future,
and provide recommendations for the communities to proceed
in a sustainable fashion. Developed a team Assessment
Report that strongly recommended to the different
communities that they begin to plan on a regional basis
since they are very closely linked by a common watershed,
transportation corridors, commerce, and labor force. Affordable
housing was also a significant issue to all communities
involved in the assessment. My leadership in water quality
issues provided a strategic process for the involved communities
into the exploration and design of Low Impact Development
(LID) policies for future development guidance in the region. Contact: Mr.

The facilitation and mediation work
