October’s theme is Transit, and our speaker is Mark Vogl.
“How can we make space for new ideas and creative energy while staying in place?”
Our @creativemorningsCLE chapter chose this month’s exploration of Transit and Aleea Rae (aleearaeart.myportfolio.com/) illustrated it.
Mark Vogl is the project manager for planning at Great Rivers Greenway where he collaborates with district staff to expand the River Ring, an expanding network of parks, trails and greenways across the St. Louis region. With a background in urban planning and landscape architecture, Mark is responsible for updating and implementing GRG’s Regional Plan as well as individual greenway master plans throughout the District. Prior to joining the district in 2013, Mark spent nearly twenty years with HOK and was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Panama. He received his Bachelor of Landscape Architecture degree from Kansas State University and studied Urban Design at Washington University in St. Louis.
