Landscape architect joins TKDA
TKDA, an employee-owned provider of engineering, architecture, and planning services, is pleased to announce that Kathleen Anglo, ASLA, PLA, has joined the firm as a senior registered landscape architect.
Anglo has 20 years of experience working for the City of Saint Paul in planning and designing large urban recreation, park, and trail development projects, soliciting and administering grants, and conducting public project outreach initiatives. She is known for her outstanding ability to manage multiple projects — some of which have been recognized with prestigious awards — while meeting deadlines.
“I’m excited to join the TKDA team and continue its long-standing tradition of providing high-quality design and serving the needs of our community,” Anglo said.
She served as project manager and senior landscape architect for Saint Paul’s Grand Round Design and Implementation plan as well as its Trout Brook Nature Sanctuary plan. Accompanied by a 9-month public outreach effort, the Grand Round project laid the groundwork for the future construction of 13 miles of parkways that include pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicular facility alignments, wayfinding, public art, stormwater infrastructure, historical resources, and prioritizing the implementation process, as well as a 1-mile cycle track facility. Anglo’s work on the award-winning Trout Brook project included important sanctuary design elements: location of the restored waterway, trail layout, overlooks, access points, natural resource restoration and habitat delineation, and landscaping. She also administered more than a million dollars in grant funding for the project.
Other significant projects she has completed include master plans for the city’s Scheffer Recreation Center, Harriet Island Regional Park riverwalk extension, Frogtown Park and Farm Development, and Trout Brook Regional Trail, which included the award of a $650,000 federal SAFETEA-LU grant.
Anglo received a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture and Bachelor of Environmental Science from North Dakota State University and is a member of the American Society of Landscape Architects.
“Kathleen brings a wealth of local experience to our team,” said DJ Heinle, vice president of TKDA’s architectural division. “She will help us continue our long tradition of quality landscape architecture design.”
