Peg Staeheli (PLA, FASLA, LEED AP) is an accomplished landscape architect who has devoted her creativity and design skills to enhancing and elevating the public realm for nearly 40 years. Her calling came into focus as a photographer taking pictures of the built environment. Landscape architecture offered the right blend of aesthetics and technical problem-solving, which she applies to her work on urban infrastructure, mobility, and renewal projects. From streets, parks, and utilities to housing and mixed-use projects, Peg has the unique ability to balance vision, design, permitting, and costs to achieve constructed reality. She approaches design as a collaboration of minds and disciplines with the goal of improving mobility, livability, and walkability for all people. With her multi-faceted experience, she delves into discipline-specific questions while keeping the needs of the public user in mind. As a LEED-accredited professional, Peg seeks design and planning solutions that maximize community benefit with minimal impact on the environment. In addition to providing her considerable expertise to clients and communities, she shares her knowledge as a frequent speaker at regional and national conferences on a range of topics from accessibility and urban renewal to green infrastructure and operations and maintenance.
