Ryan Wilson joined MPC in December of 2019 to help enable change to the practices that govern and sustain water in our region. He is currently focused on the implementation of market-based policies that improve the management of stormwater, while shifting the benefits of regulated development and land stewardship from high-capacity to low-capacity communities.
He has over 14 years of experience designing, building, and developing innovative solutions that increase the vitality of cities and connected regions. Recently, Ryan led the design practice and market development for Greenprint Partners to become one of the nation’s leading developers of community-driven green infrastructure. He is a registered landscape architect in the State of Illinois, and holds a BLA in Landscape Architecture from the University of Georgia. He earned a postgraduate certificate from--and later joined the faculty of--Archeworks, a public-interest design school. He has taught as adjunct faculty at the IIT School of Architecture.
He lives on Chicago’s South Side in the Hyde Park neighborhood from where he enjoys much of what the region has to offer, especially Promontory Point, Hyde Park Produce, and the Jackson Park Harbor. His preferred pronouns are he/him/his.
