Licensure of Landscape Architects Now the Law in District of Columbia

Washington, D.C., April 10, 2017 — The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) is pleased to announce that landscape architecture licensure is now the law in the District of Columbia. On April 7,  Law Number L21-0249 passed the final step of U.S. Congressional review and is now in the process of being implemented.

“Licensure is a critical government function,” said Nancy C. Somerville, Hon. ASLA, executive vice president and CEO of ASLA. “A substantial body of evidence proves that landscape architectural services have a significant impact on public health, safety, and welfare. Landscape architects lead the way on initiatives such as designing to conserve water and protect water quality, managing stormwater runoff, planning cutting-edge transportation corridors, and designing parks and recreation projects that promote active lifestyles. Now all 50 states and the District of Columbia have licensure “

The legislation adds landscape architecture representatives to the newly renamed Board of Architecture, Interior Design and Landscape Architecture.
