Lumos’ Dale Doerr was recently elected president of the Nevada State Board of Landscape Architecture.
Nevada State Board of Landscape Architecture
The Board includes two Landscape Architects from both Northern and Southern Nevada, along with a Public Member. It regulates the practice of Landscape Architecture, protecting the public’s health, safety and welfare. The Board also reviews and approves applications for licensure and examination, working closely with CLARB, the association responsible for the national exam. Currently there are 366 license holders, including 83 who reside in the state of Nevada. The majority of licensees are from California and Arizona. It is expected that applications for reciprocity will grow rapidly in the next few years with continued growth in our state. The Board’s goals for this year include developing a 3 and five-year strategic plan, along with implementing continuing education requirements. Equally important is educating new members regarding open public meeting laws and following the Boards and Commissions guidelines for the state.
Dale Doerr heads landscape architecture services for Lumos and in his position has provided landscape planning and design for most of the numerous parks and schools that have been built in Northern Nevada in the last 10 years as well as most of the new buildings on the UNR campus. Appointed by Governor Sandoval to the Nevada State Board of Landscape Architects in 2012, Dale has worked diligently to increase awareness of the Landscape Architect industry. He often invites students to shadow him for a semester.
Dale’s background includes more than 30 years of park and recreation master planning, land use planning, subdivision design, grading plans, erosion control plans, urban renewal, and landscape/irrigation design. He has received numerous awards and accolades in his career, including the privilege of being a grandfather.
