“I was born in the small town of Dubois, Idaho, and today I work in one of the largest cities in the Northwest. That’s the great thing about our state: It offers every kind of environment, from wilderness to urban, sometimes separated by just minutes. I’m committed to helping Boise continue to be the livable, unique, and special place it is, so when people visit, they say, ‘Wow, what an incredible place; this feels like home.’”

More than most public agencies, CCDC’s work is visible to everybody in the projects and partnerships that help shape the Boise cityscape. Doug’s role in that work is overseeing the improvement of downtown plazas, streets, sidewalks, bike facilities, and pathways. He is currently involved in the generation and completion of projects located throughout Boise's six urban renewal districts. Doug and CCDC are dedicated to revitalizing downtown and recognizing the value of natural resources as amenities and as contributing to the special sense of place in Idaho.

Prior to joining CCDC, Doug worked in Utah, California, and Hawaii. He participated in the recent planning effort for the Boise Public Library expansion, co-authored the TDR Handbook (Island Press), and formerly sat on the board of the Congress for New Urbanism’s Utah chapter.

He holds a master’s degree in real estate development with an emphasis in city and metropolitan planning from the University of Utah, a bachelor’s degree in landscape architecture from the University of Idaho, and an associate’s degree in applied science from Boise State University.
