ALEX MICHAEL SMITH L E E D G R E E N A S S O C I AT E

Currently working for the Philadelphia City Planning Commission, as a City Planner III in the Urban Design Division. A graduate of The Pennsylvania State University, with a Bachelor’s degree in Landscape Architecture (2011). Professional mission is to expand and explore a deeper understanding of civic landscapes and urban communities, finding ways to engage and help mediate both large and small scale planning, growth, and design development dilemmas. My emphasis and framework evolve around an urban identity -- specifically transit oriented development, urban planning, stormwater management design, streetscape programming, and community placemaking planning processes. Outside of the office, I am a world traveler having been to over ten countries, and enjoy photography, hiking, cooking, and spending time with friends and family.
