Chapter Members Inducted into AICP College of Fellows

By Mark Kulaas, FAICP, Chair, Chapter College of Fellows Nominating Committee

The College of Fellows of the American Institute of Certified Planners inducted 64 new members during the April 2018 National Planning Conference in New Orleans.  Among this group are two members of the Washington Chapter: Wayne E. Carlson and Roger M. Millar, Jr.  Induction into the College of Fellows is one of the highest honors that the American Institute of Certified Planners bestows upon a member.  This honor recognizes the achievements of the professional who has made significant contributions to society and the field of planning.  Washington Chapter has the fifth most members of the college among all of the chapters in the American Planning Association.

Congratulations to Wayne and Roger.  Here is some condensed information about their accomplishments.

Wayne Carlson, FAICP
Wayne’s contributions as a green infrastructure planner are unparalleled in the Western United States. He served as project manager for Washington State’s first subdivision to manage all of its stormwater through the use of Low Impact Development practices. He authored many of the seminal low impact development guidance documents in Washington State including the Eastern Washington Low Impact Development Manual, the Yakima Low Impact Development Stormwater Design Manual, and Integrating LID into Local Codes and Standards. His work with the Central Coast Low Impact Development Initiative was cited by name as a permit requirement for California’s Statewide Phase II Municipal Stormwater Permit.

Roger Millar, Jr., FAICP
The prominent theme that has run through Roger Millar’s career has been planning transportation systems that do not end unto themselves; but rather the means toward economic vitality, environmental stewardship, social equity, public health, and aesthetic quality. His work on the Portland Streetcar and the Glenwood Springs to Aspen BRT provided communities nationwide with new modal tools. His Complete Streets leadership helped create a national movement for transportation systems that are safe, convenient, and pleasant for all users, regardless of how they choose to travel. His State DOT leadership is bringing innovation to agencies with enormous influence on transportation investment.
