106 Landscape Architect and Specifier News I n f o r m a t i o n R e q u e s t # 5 6 0 I n f o r m a t i o n R e q u e s t # 5 6 1 Established in 1965, Miller Legg www.millerlegg.com is a multidisciplinary firm providing engineering, planning, landscape architecture and urban design, surveying, environmental wetlands consulting, environmental engineering and geographic information systems. The firm has completed numerous municipal, county, state and federal projects ranging from neighborhood improvement and redevelopment projects, educational facilities site planning, cemeteries, neighborhood parks and golf course designs to aviation facilities, regional water and sewer utilities, streetscapes, and streets and highways. The firm is based in Florida, with offices in Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Port St. Lucie and Winter Park, plus offices in Saudi Arabia and Dubai.. Miller Legg turned 50 on April 1, 2015. In preparation for that anniversary, "Miller Leggers" launched a campaign of donating hours to community service organizations. A few examples are assembling bikes for underprivileged children at the Moose Lodge in central Florida; hosting a pizza party for foster children and teens living at Children's Harbor in Pembroke Pines; donating toys to the Davie Emergency Assistance Service Effort Foundation in Davie, Fla.; and packing meals for the Boys & Girls Club of Broward County's "Holidays without Hunger" event. In addition, more than 40 Miller Legg staff and family members participated in the first American Cancer Society "Relay on the Runway" on the new south runway at Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport. Since the program kicked-off in August 2014, more than 500 hours have been donated. "It's a lot of fun knowing that by giving our time, we're providing something valuable to someone who needs a hand," said Cara Pasquale, director of business development. "We focus every day on doing our best work professionally. It's good to remember that helping people in the community is just as important." "Selfie" photos sharing the latest community projects are posted on the firm's Facebook page www.facebook.com/MillerLegg. The staff agrees that the most memorable outing for the Miller Legg team was walking along the new runway with commercial airliners arriving and departing during the "Relay on the Runway." "Charitable giving has always been part of our culture as reinforced by our tagline, 'Improving Communities and Creating Environments,'" notes David John, president and CEO of Miller Legg. "Throughout the years, we've continued to maintain a small- firm feel and a sense of family, and the hundreds of hours Miller Leggers are donating come as no surprise... we're very proud of each of them." The Miller Legg firm turned 50 on April 1, 2015. Miller Legg Celebrates 50 Years — and Lends a Hand
