Brice Maryman Wins Doug Mason Memorial Award

On Wednesday, March 25, the Municipal League of King County honored SvR Design Company’s Brice Maryman with the Doug Mason Memorial Award for his volunteer work on Open Space Seattle 2100 and the Seattle Parks for All Levy. The Doug Mason Memorial is given to a person, age 35 or under, who has made a special contribution to the people of King County in the following areas: environmental protection and preservation, agricultural preservation, transportation, human services, housing, good government, ethics in politics, or effective government administration. Maryman, who is a landscape architect at SvR, co-directed Open Space Seattle 2100, creating a collaborative planning process that directly engaged hundreds of multidisciplinary professionals and citizens to create long-term plans for Seattle's interconnected "green infrastructure," and helped catalyze and led the coalition that advocated for 2008’s successful parks and green spaces levy renewal.

Eight individuals and three organizations were honored in the Municipal League’s 50th annual Civic Awards for outstanding contribution to the community. Open Space Seattle 2100, which Brice co-directed with the University of Washington’s Nancy Rottle, was also the winner of the 2007 ASLA Planning + Analysis Honor Award.
