Donald P. Naetzker II RLA

Landscape Architecture Manager

Don is the leader of our Landscape Architecture and Planning department. In addition to being a creative and contextual designer, he is an urbanist that has led several city and town revitalization projects throughout the Northeastern United States. He is passionate about mixed-use, walkable, healthy, fun, and social environments. He defines a project’s success through the principle of Triple Bottom Line Sustainability – that it succeeds socially, environmentally, and economically. Don thrives on designing spaces to be filled with activity, music, and laughter.

Don managed to buy and sell 6 cars by the time he was 18 by selling dollhouses he had built. An avid outdoorsman, he loves all activities that have to do with water or mountains including sailing, skiing, and hiking. He particularly enjoys sharing those experiences with his four children.
