Greg Vail Greg Vail is Selva Partners' President. He is responsible for the sustainable development project management, resource management planning and environmental credit functions of the firm.
Vail has been involved in sustainable development activities for over 30 years. His interest in environmental protection began on Earth Day 1970 when he persuaded college administrators to allow fellow students to remove a large area of asphalt on campus and replace it with an oak forest.
Later, as he watched the degradation of coastal wetlands and bluffs in his Southern California hometown through poorly planned development, he decided to pursue resource-based land planning professionally.
...
Vail realized that Dr. Keeling had made an important discovery and remembered both the concept and the conversation.
...
From there, Vail applied his skills to a range of the environmentally and politically complex of projects up to today, with major focus on work involving urban coastal zone areas and sensitive habitats. Years ahead of current practice, Vail referred to his efforts as "ecological planning", a precursor to sustainable and regenerative development. Vail communicated this idea to a broader audience from Mexico to Indonesia, Japan and Singapore, first developing an alliance with the Cousteau Society's efforts in Mexico and later providing various sustainable development initiatives in Indonesia.
In 2000, Vail and three partners invested in a large parcel of land in the environmentally sensitive foothills of Southern California. Known as Hidden Ranch, he and his partners developed a conservation bank on the 800-acre property. The conservation bank was the repository for the creation and sale of biological credits to be sold for land development impact mitigation elsewhere. The partnership doubled its investment in four years.
Along with Vail's work in conservation banking, he dedicated 10 successful years to residential and vacant land estate, where he was a top 10% agent nationwide in his company for eight of ten years.
In 2007, Vail joined The Athens Group, a sustainable development company to manage the Aliso Creek Redevelopment Plan in Laguna Beach, California. Here, managing a consortium of some 24 professional companies, he and partner Oscar Uranga developed advanced techniques for integrated environmental stewardship in connection with land development.
Vail holds a bachelor's degree with honors in History from Stanford University and a master's degree in landscape architecture (ecosystematic design) from California State Polytechnic University Pomona. He, his wife Lynn and sons Billy and Brian live in Laguna Beach, California.

Selva Partner Greg Vail, acting in the capacity of Chairman of the local community Planning Commission shepherded the Laguna Beach Montage Resort and Treasure Island Park through some 37 contentious and complex public hearings. During this several-year process, Vail worked closely with applicant The Athens Group and the community to craft design guidelines and development standards, new zoning, tract maps, sustainable development design, architecture and landscape architecture for the largest project in the community's history.
Vail also worked to gather community support that resulted in a referendum vote confirming the city leaders' decision to approve the project. Vail acted as de facto city landscape architect in review of the project plans which included a large community park and botanical garden.
