Elaine is an enthusiastic Silver Lake resident, environmental attorney, and certified landscape architect focused on preserving the neighborhood’s unique identity while embracing its sustainable and dynamic future. She has worked for one of the state’s preeminent land use and environmental attorneys as well as one of the city’s leading landscape architecture and urban design firms. Through these experiences she has gained a discerning lens and balanced approach to addressing some of the neighborhood’s forefront issues including growth, climate change and evolving aesthetics. Inspired by the events of 2016, Elaine became involved in Silver Lake Forward to volunteer her expertise in a space she uses daily, the Silver Lake Reservoir Complex. Elaine would now like to join the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council to further work with stakeholders to create a better community for all current and future residents.
