    Stephenson will share architect John Nolen’s vision for Mirror Lake, profiled in his book, John Nolen: Landscape Architect and City Planner Nolen (1869-1937) completed more than 350 planning projects in cities across the U.S., including St. Pete’s Mirror Lake neighborhood. 

    Hosted at St. Pete’s historic Shuffleboard Club in Mirror Lake, the evening will also include a tour of the 1924 facility with the club’s Executive Director, Christine Page.

His latest, “Portland’s Good Life: Hope and Sustainability in an American City” is the basis for a Rollins Symposium, Equity the Key to Sustainability, this November.  Stephenson was awarded the 2021 John Nolen medal from the Florida Chapter of the Congress of New Urbanism.
