Doug has over 30 years of experience as a sustainable urban planner and real estate developer, most of which have focused on applying the principles of regenerative design to traditional neighborhood development; creating walkable neighborhoods with a mix of uses, ages and incomes. In total, Doug has been responsible for the design and planning of four significant new towns or communities, ranging from 100 - 6000 homes in BC, Canada, USA, and Mexico. During this time, Doug also has drafted a wide variety of planning studies, zoning bylaws, community design guidelines, tree preservation bylaws, green subdivision standard bylaws and Official Community Plans. As part of an inter-disciplinary team, he incorporates Nature-based Solutions into the delivery of civil engineering and infrastructure into all of the communities. In addition to these projects, Doug continues to offer regenerative real estate development consulting services to developers and land owners on Vancouver Island and around the world.
