John M. Dugan, FAICP

For 45 years, John Dugan has been a leader in urban planning, design, development, community building, and planning education. His significant contributions across the full planning spectrum as planning director in Oklahoma City, Topeka, San Antonio, Norfolk, and Fresno have left these cities better places than they were before. Through his leadership in comprehensive planning, zoning, housing, transportation, urban design, economic development, and teaching, John's achievements stimulated community renewal in low-wealth communities as well as fostered successful new development. Just as important, his students and younger colleagues have benefited from his mentorship and leadership in APA as Oklahoma Chapter President and member of the AICP certification test committee.
