About the program:
Join Maeve Nevins-Lavtar as she takes us on a tour of Sandpoint’s Parks, Recreation and Open Space public-private partnership model for success. Along this journey, Maeve will explore the planning, design, and construction of a variety of unique public park projects from her past, present, and future and a reflection on their ripples of impact. Example projects will range from Alaska’s first public Health and Healing Park, to memorial mountaintops, and labyrinth trails. Through this journey we will gain insight into successful project strategies that can be implemented at any scale.

About the speaker:
Maeve began her career as a professional designer in 2005 with a foundation in mountain resort and community landscape architecture. Since then, she has built a diverse portfolio ranging from a commemorative Blue Star garden to Alaska’s first public Intergenerational Health and Healing Park. Since 2012, she has managed many public park and trail projects, implementing community-driven ideas from conceptual design through construction. Maeve holds a Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture from Colorado State University and has held leadership roles with local state Chapters of the Association of Landscape Architects.
