Take a moment to get to know the 2018 LCMA Board of Directors candidates (in alphabetical order):
Matt Alcorn (incumbent)
“Drawing from a background in Business, Finance and Real Estate Development, I have served as an LCMA Board of Directors member since early 2015, the Committee chair for Lowry’s Design Review Committee since 2016 and a Building and Grounds Committee member from 2014-2017. I am proud to live in Lowry and am passionate about keeping it a vibrant and beautiful place to live. Of particular interest are topics like child safety, crime and traffic control.”
“I have been a Lowry resident since 2003, I am a licensed Architect in the state of Colorado and I currently work as the Principal and Director of Design for Clutch Design Studio, a Denver Architecture firm. I am a third generation Colorado native and I studied architecture at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
While still a student, I began working as a designer in the Denver architecture firm of Fentress Architects and I have participated in numerous national and international design competitions and have been the lead project designer for several buildings including the LEED Platinum Humanities Gateway at the University of California Irvine and the LEED Gold stem cell research laboratory for the Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine adjacent to the Salk Institute in La Jolla. After 18 years with Fentress Architects I help found Clutch Design Studio in Denver in May of 2013. I am also an artist and have won awards with the Art Students League in Denver and the Curtis Arts and Humanities Center in Greenwood Village, as well as received a public art commission from the City of Denver and I show regularly at Space Gallery in the Santa Fe Arts District in Denver.
I was named one of Engineering News Record’s ‘Top 20 under 40’ in 2012, I am a visiting critic to the University of Colorado, College of Architecture and Planning and a Design Review Board Member for the Fitzsimons Redevelopment Authority.”
“I have lived in Lowry for over 4 years and would like the opportunity to serve on the LCMA Board. I am an architect and a mother of 4, which means I manage large scale commercial design projects, budgets, and contracts for work and understand the importance of safety, schools, and vibrancy for my family. My primary interest is to continue to have Lowry be a sought out community for both residents and businesses. I want to ensure that we maintain the beauty, value and appeal of our community.”
Joshua Thall (incumbent)
“Having served on the Board for 6 years, 4 of which as its president, I bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the position. With over 15 years of experience in the construction and development industry, I have a vast knowledge of development, green building, landscape, and construction management that would be an invaluable resource to the LCMA board. On a daily basis I collaborate with owners, developers, architects, engineers, and city officials to bring both large and small-scale projects to completion on time and on budget. I would use my personal knowledge and industry contacts to help maintain the smart growth and fiscal responsibility we have enjoyed in Lowry since its inception. Between my wife and I, we have lived in Lowry for almost 14 years and have made Lowry our home for the long term. We love the community, the location, the events, the restaurants and all that Lowry continues to provide us, and I feel blessed to do my part to give back to this great community. I am committed to this community and its continued success. I see many great things on the horizon for us, including the continued redevelopment of Boulevard One, increased business presence, and the continued success of our small business retailers and entrepreneurs alike. Lowry provides a unique opportunity to both live and work in a family friendly environment with great access to Downtown and the business district. With continued support from the LCMA, businesses and residents can flourish. I am a passionate individual and especially passionate about helping others and serving my community. I appreciate the opportunity to serve as a member of the LCMA board. Thank you for your consideration.”
“I have lived in Lowry for over 10 years, at 7437 E. 10th Ave. I enjoy gardening, sewing and walking my 2 rescue dogs. For the past 20 years, I have been volunteering at Christ the King Catholic Church and the U.S. Veteran’s Administration (VA) Hospital. My Juris Doctorate (J.D.) is from the University of Denver, and I am an experienced, self-employed Colorado lawyer. I love my neighbors, and will happily advocate for them.”
