From 1999-2014, Rosemary served as an architectural advisor to the Board. She reviewed issues directly affecting zoning, planning, development and design within a 60 block area surrounding the Capitol in St. Paul. She advised on projects ranging in scale from signs to Cass Gilbert’s Capitol $270 million restoration currently underway.
In the last two years of service, Rosemary advised on over $400 million in projects. She served as juror and jury chair for a number of national competitions, and on selection committees for architects and contractors for projects in the area. She regularly worked with the Lieutenant Governor, State senators and representatives, city of St. Paul officials, and board members.
At the AIA (American Institute of Architects) Minnesota Convention in November, Rosemary was honored to receive a Presidential Citation. The award reads: “For exemplary service to the Capitol Area Architectural and Planning Board representing AIA Minnesota for 15 years.”
