Meet Steve Dadio!
Steve has over 19 years of experience as an Environmental Project Manager. Steve has been with CEDARVILLE since its creation in 2010. Since his time here, his most memorable project is the Detroit Urban Soil Assessment. In 2013, he worked with the US - EPA on assessing the soils for vacant lots in Detroit to mitigate the impacts of Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) events.
He found the extent of the blight in Detroit to be, at times, both emotionally and physically overwhelming. While he was near the center of a city that at one time had 2 million people, his team flushed out a pheasant at one of our site locations in a neighborhood that was abandoned 30 years ago!
The need to collect baseline information for urban areas is of critical importance in the planning and execution of any type of urban redevelopment (green infrastructure, urban agriculture, landscape planning, etc). The amount of vacant land in Detroit was far greater than in any other city in which he’s ever worked. These vast amounts of vacant land offers Detroit an opportunity to redefine itself into a more compact and sustainable community. However, this will require a coordinated effort between residents, stakeholders, and government to make these opportunities into reality.
For himself, Steve is a proud husband and father of 3 boys, a dog, and a rabbit. His hobbies include gardening, playing handball, and producing maple syrup in his spare time. He is an Adjunct Professor at Delaware Valley University in Doylestown, PA. Also, according to relatives, he is a descendant of Alexios Comninos, Emperor of Byzantium (1081-1118)!
