Scott Polikov, Michael Huston and Jayashree Narayana of the Gateway Planning Group will address the crowd of business and community leaders this Thursday, August 1 at the monthly Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce Rooster Booster.
President of Gateway Planning, Scott Polikov is a national leader in harnessing the Economics of Place. Totaling more than $5 billion in constructed neighborhoods and $3 billion in context sensitive infrastructure, Gateway Planning’s notable work includes leading the urban design analysis for Dallas CityMap—a 50-year plan for the reinvention of Dallas’ urban highway corridors, as well as the redevelopment plans and FBC’s for many historic downtowns such as Owensboro, Ky., Rogers, Ark. and downtown McKinney, Texas, which Money Magazine underscored as the primary reason it named McKinney Number 1 Best Places to Live in America in 2014.
Michael Huston is an architect and urbanist based in St. Petersburg, Florida. He is a Kentucky native who grew up in Owensboro and graduated from Owensboro Catholic High School in 1983. His background includes a decade of designing educational facilities followed by a number of years devoted to downtown revitalization in Louisville, KY, working first with city government in urban design, historic preservation and neighborhood planning, and subsequently in partnership with a developer specializing in adaptive re-use and urban mixed-use projects. His experience gives him a unique perspective from both the public and private sectors of planning and development.
With over 23 years of public and private sector experience, Jayashree Narayana, AICP, Principal of Livable Plans and Codes, has worked on several award-winning initiatives. LPC specializes in a range of planning and urban design initiatives from comprehensive plans, downtown plans, corridor and small area plans, all with a focus on implementation through zoning and form-based codes.
