Join us in welcoming John Fregonese with Fregonese Associates out of Portland, OR.  John will impart his vast expierence to us about his Envision Tomorrow analytic tool modeling for SDAT and Sustainable Places Project and more.

John has been a planner for over 30 years, where he has earned the rare reputation of being able both to create an energizing vision for communities and to develop concrete, workable solutions to urban problems. John is known for his work in Portland, Oregon, where he served five years as the planning director of the regional government, Metro, and was the primary author of the regional growth concept known as Metro 2040.

Since founding the firm in 1997, John has led a variety of planning projects, including some of the most nationally significant regional plans in recent decades. He was a key consultant in the Envision Utah process, an ongoing regional plan that has garnered national recognition, as well as the lead consultant for Chicago Metropolis 2020, the initiative by the Chicago Commercial Club to reprise the seminal Chicago Plan of 1909.

He was the consultant for Compass Blueprint, the regional vision for SCAG, the regional government of Southern California, a massive region of 38,000 square miles and 17 million people. He was a key consultant for Louisiana Speaks, Louisiana’s first regional plan for the southern Louisiana, and was lead consultant to the Big Look Task Force, a committee mandated to comprehensively review Oregon’s planning system.

In addition to his regional plans, John has led numerous comprehensive plans for large cities such as Denver, Tulsa, Dallas and Baton Rouge. He has also led plans and visions for diverse cities such as San Diego, Athens, Georgia and the Grand Traverse Region in Michigan, as well as numerous small area plans for downtowns, neighborhoods, and other areas such as Beaverton, Oregon, Waco, Texas, West Feliciana Parish, Louisiana and Portland, Oregon.
