Dave Foster, PLA
- Based In Salt Lake City
As a landscape architect, I chose my career path based on the opportunity to impact people’s lives in a positive and meaningful way through the built environment. I have worked on a variety of projects throughout my career, however nothing compares to the profound impact and lasting legacy created by projects that encourage and facilitate the daily act of walking and biking. The simple introduction of these activities into our lives affects so many things from our health to our mood to our productivity. Regardless of whether the purpose is for transportation or recreation, the benefits to our minds and body are powerful. This is why I choose to work at Alta Planning + Design.
Dave has nine years of experience in pedestrian and bicycle planning, streetscape design, parks and trail planning, and urban design projects across the country. He brings a unique blend of technical expertise concerning bicycle and pedestrian planning issues, constructability knowledge, public facilitation experience, and creativity to the projects he works on. Dave has participated in all aspects of pedestrian, greenway and trail planning projects, from master plans through construction documents.
