Interviewer Dhawal Kataria, AICP, uncovers Su’s path from Taiwan to San Jose and the experiences that have shaped his approach to urban design and community planning.
By Laurie A. Johnson PhD, FAICP, November 5, 2022. George Mader, FAICP, passed away on July 28, 2022 — his 93rd birthday. In his remarkable six-decades-long career, George was widely recognized for his extensive work in integrating geologic hazards information with land-use planning. He pioneered the development of slope-density zoning and the transfer of development credits, both of which have been used widely in geologically hazardous and environmentally sensitive communities across California and beyond.
