Tom McCall Award :: Accepting Nominations
Oregon Governor Tom McCall left an indelible imprint on Oregon’s landscape during his tenure in office from 1967 to 1975. McCall provided political leadership that resulted in the Oregon’s innovative land use planning laws, protection of Oregon’s coastline with the Beach Bill and dedicated funding for bicycle and pedestrian facilities with the Bicycle Bill. With these laws, and others passed during his tenure, Governor McCall set the stage for Oregon to become a leader in the environmental movement that continues to guide us today.

In recognition of the legacy created by Governor McCall’s vision and values, ASLA Oregon has established this award to recognize the significant contributions of an individual, group, or organization, other than landscape architects, that has provided community leadership and careful stewardship of Oregon’s natural or built environment.
