Kevin Tyjeski

Kevin Tyjeski, adjunct professor with the Rollins College Master of Planning in Civic Urbanism program,  passed away unexpectedly last week.  He left his family and colleagues too young, but left an indelible mark on the City of Orlando as a planner and, more recently, as deputy director of economic development.  Kevin's students will no doubt carry on his legacy.  Rollins College posted the sad news of his passing at this link.  Kevin was preparing a manuscript for a book about the history of Baldwin Park.  I hope that, one day, someone else finishes the manuscript in honor of his lasting contributions to Central Florida.

Here's a LINK to a PowerPoint presentation Kevin gave to the Florida Redevelopment Association Annual Conference in 2011.
