Moe Dorton Award
Share |

Our organization has attracted top Twin Cities land use professionals as members. One of these distinguished individuals was the late Maurice "Moe" Dorton. Moe served as an employee of the Metropolitan Waste Control Commission, Director of Physical Planning for the Metropolitan Council, and Executive Director of the Metropolitan Council.

He was a patient, cooperative, responsive, and gracious human being who treated everyone with the utmost respect and courtesy, regardless of the magnitude of their problem. Moe worked diligently to answer questions and solve problems in an efficient and tactful manner. He had a gentleness and thoughtfulness which gave status to anyone with whom he interacted. Moe's entire career was focused on working in and for the public.
