  • Riad Mahayni memorial service is June 29
  • June 27, 2017

    The College of Design is deeply saddened by the passing of Professor Emeritus Riad Mahayni, FAICP, 75, who died Friday, June 23, at Israel Family Hospice House in Ames following a courageous battle with cancer. A memorial service will be at 5 p.m. Thursday, June 29, in the college’s Lyle E. Lightfoot Forum. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Dr. Riad Mahayni Civic Planning Award scholarship fund at Iowa State.

    Professor Mahayni first came to Iowa State from 1979-1983 to serve as chair of the Department of Community & Regional Planning (formerly the Department of Urban Planning in the College of Agriculture) in its new home in the College of Design. After coordinating a major regional planning project in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, from 1983-1985, he returned to ISU in 1986 as a planning professor, teaching courses on planning in developing nations as well as transportation planning, planning theory and methods, land use and comprehensive planning. He chaired the department again from 1995-2002.

    Under Mahayni’s direction, the department earned recognition and accreditation of its undergraduate and graduate programs, expanded the number of faculty and students, developed double-degree programs with several other departments and increased collaboration with communities in central Iowa and around the world. He retired in 2012.

    Mahayni also contributed to the community through his service on the Ames City Council (including five years as mayor pro tem) as well as the city’s Historic Preservation Commission, Planning and Zoning Commission and Economic Development Commission; the Story County United Way; Ames Rotary Club; and the board of Youth and Shelter Services. He was instrumental in the establishment of the Darul Arqum Islamic Center in west Ames. View the full obituary
