JoePantuso2015SNHBA staffer Joseph A. Pantuso, Ph.D. passed away Monday following intermittent periods of illness over the past two years. He was 74.

Pantuso was an environmental and urban affairs specialist at the Southern Nevada Home Builders Association since June 2005. He was also a professor of environmental science at the College of Southern Nevada.

Plans for a memorial service are pending. SNHBA will share that information once it becomes available.

Pantuso had a long and distinguished career in comprehensive planning. He was respected for his knowledge of urban planning, land development, zoning, the entitlement process and a broad range of environmental issues.

During his time at SNHBA, he worked on numerous issues, including stormwater management, connectivity and complete streets, to name just a few. He also represented SNHBA and the home building industry on many stakeholder groups working on issues of importance to the industry.

SNHBA extends its sympathy and condolences to his family and friends at this sad time.
