Patricia Comarell, FAICP

With a lifelong commitment to engaging the public, long-range planning, and improving planning administration in Utah, Pat Comarell has provided the needed leadership to ensure that visionary change can happen at the local level. The communities where she worked continue to use much of the original process that she developed. As a past chapter president and PDO, her efforts to turn around the Utah Chapter have resulted in vastly improved programs, newsletters, conferences, and statewide respect. She is an award-winning role model for young planners and a beacon for more experienced planners, and she demonstrates an extraordinary devotion to the profession. Inducted in 2010.
