SCOTT MARTIN: Administrator


Scott Martin is the Administrator for Chattanooga’s Department of Parks & Outdoors. Before joining the City of Chattanooga, he was the founding Director of River Heritage Conservancy, Inc, the conservancy creating ORIGIN Park on the North Shore of the Falls of the Ohio.

He is presently a member of the Executive Board for World Urban Parks. In this role he has delivered talks on urban park and conservation systems to audiences in Australia, Canada, Europe, and Mexico. His work has been featured in the Australasia Parks and Leisure Journal, Landscape Architecture Magazine, Virginia Review, the National Association for Olmsted Parks, National Geographic, Creative Mornings, and the global “Nature in Cities Network”. Scott holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from Boise State University (Go Broncos!), and was elected a Fellow in the American Academy for Parks & Recreation Administration in 2021.
