BSLA Congratulates Three New Fellows
The American Society of Landscape Architects has elevated 28 members to the ASLA Council of Fellows for 2016 and Boston is proud to have three new Fellows:
Fellowship is among the highest honors the ASLA bestows on members and recognizes the contributions of these individuals to their profession and society at large as demonstrated by their works, leadership and management, knowledge and service. The new class of Fellows will be recognized at the 2016 ASLA Annual Meeting & Expo,
The designation of Fellow is conferred on individuals in recognition of exceptional accomplishments over a sustained period of time. Individuals considered for this distinction must be members of ASLA in good standing for at least 10 years and must be recommended to the Council of Fellows by the Executive Committee of their local chapter, the Executive Committee of ASLA or the Executive Committee of the Council of Fellows.
Alta Design + Planning
Thomas Doolittle, of Alta Design + Planning, received his nomination, for Service, from the Boston Chapter. As an advocate for the profession and ASLA leader, he has advanced the public’s understanding of landscape architects’ contributions to vibrant public spaces and livable, walkable cities. He volunteers countless hours to connect with other professions, organizations and civic groups to improve the lives of those around him. His organizational skills are invaluable, and his dedication and commitment to the profession are clearly evident to those with whom he works. His balanced perspective and clear expression of ideas consistently provide solutions to critical concerns, most notably within the Government Affairs Advisory Committee, which includes representation on all sides of the political spectrum, and on the Transportation Alternatives Program towards sustainable pollination populations.
