Larry graduated from the University of Nebraska with a five-year Bachelor of Science degree in Architecture with emphasis on urban planning. His experience includes 40+ years of work for municipalities in the Pikes Peak region, as well as several years as a consultant in the private development sector. Over 25 years of that experience was in management capacities for the planning departments of relatively small communities. The municipalities included Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs, and Cripple Creek. This experience has also provided Larry with the opportunity to gain considerable knowledge of the civil engineering that is so closely associated with planning projects. Larry’s philosophy has always been that of a committed public servant and insures that the department he manages understands that the public, whether a home owner or a land developer, is the client that he and his staff is available to assist in their efforts, while insuring diligent review and processing of requests in accordance with regulations.
