Associate Director, First Stop Portland
On Nov 10, 2017, Portland said goodbye to renowned landscape architect, urban pioneer, and civic treasure James Douglas "Doug" Macy. Doug was an original member of First Stop Portland's Advisory Council and helped shape our program from the beginning, sharing his knowledge and wisdom with our staff, students, and visitors from around the world.
First Stop's mission includes "connecting visitors with Portland's experts, leaders, and innovators-- the people who can share 'The Portland Story' best because they're writing it." Few people have written Portland's story with more passion or influence than Doug. In 2010, we sat down at the offices of Walker | Macy to talk with Doug about Portland-- past, present and future.
