Scott has more than 24 years of planning and policy development experience including directing metropolitan planning organizations and serving as a senior project manager in the private sector. Between that private and public work, he’s seen just about everything when it comes to transportation planning and policy matters at municipal, regional, and national scales.
Engaging community members in conversations about economic impacts, environmental concerns, and policy matters is important to Scott. One of his recent projects is the Northeast Area Study for the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization in Charlotte. He’s enjoyed being able to apply an enormous breadth of public engagement techniques and see the scope of the results, not only for transportation, but also land use recommendations that will shape a very large and dynamic area.
Scott is passionate about walkable communities and enjoys creating more opportunities for biking, walking, and transit services in our neighborhoods. In fact, he co-founded the organization BikeSmart-GrowSmart and uses his credential as a League of American Bicyclist Certified Master Instructor to teach kids how to ride bicycles more safely. When Scott isn’t riding his bicycle he’s riding his other preferred mode of transportation – his motorcycle.
