Stephen C. Butler '79, of Seattle, WA, will be inducted into the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP) College of Fellows on April 27. The College of Fellows "recognizes individuals who have made exceptional contributions to the planning profession."

Butler, who earned his St. Lawrence degree in sociology and was elected to the academic honor society Phi Beta Kappa, is director of planning and community development for the City of SeaTac (Seattle-Tacoma). During his 25-year career, he has developed several award-winning and innovative plans and implementation programs. Among his most highly regarded works are two plans for light rail stations in SeaTac, and a greenbelt plan for Cape Elizabeth, Maine. The Transit Station Area Action Plans capitalize on the light rail line that will eventually connect Seattle and SeaTac International Airport. The plans, which call for construction of a new "Main Street," are now being implemented. The 1988 Greenbelt Plan for Cape Elizabeth, which Butler developed as a consultant, has preserved space, created a pedestrian trail system and protected visually significant areas.
