No, time doesn’t stand still …. although during Covid related lockdowns it may feel like it at times. 2021 is quickly coming to a close and although we are still dealing with Covid related issues it is feeling like a bit of “normalcy” is coming back. We are beginning to have more in person meetings and outreach and are excited to see how this experience will positively change design and people’s value of open space moving forward. This is a perfect time to say thank you to all of our clients that have entrusted us to move their projects forward during these challenging times and to our staff for remaining flexible, engaged, and excited to realize positive change.
Speaking of change, many of you may already know that Mark Slichter will be retiring at the end of the year. Mark has been a firm leader, a dedicated landscape architect, and for many of us a tremendous teacher for the past 34+ years. I have thoroughly treasured our partnership and I am excited for him to have the opportunity to explore new adventures in retirement. It is certainly well deserved.
We have one more piece of exciting news, but we will have to wait until the new year to announce that! In the meantime, myself and the entire CALA family wish you and your family a healthy and happy holiday season and new year.
