Director of Planning retiring next month

Posted December 12, 2013

Eric Chandler, New Tecumseth's Director of Planning informed council last week that he will be retiring from the Town effective Jan. 31, 2014.

Mr. Chandler has been the Manager/Director of Planning since January 2007. He was previously employed by the Province in various ministries, including being responsible for determining the siting and approvals of all the new superjails throughout the Province. He's been a professional planner for 33 years.

The Town has just posted an advertisement to recruit a replacement.

"Reporting to the Chief Administrative Officer and as a key member of the Senior Management Team, you will direct and provide management and leadership to a team of professional planners in the Planning and Development Department. You will provide strategic direction and advice regarding policy initiatives and development approvals. You will prepare, organize and monitor the provision of policy and development information to members of Council, Town staff, other levels of government, the general public and the development community. The Director of Planning represents the Town on committees and at public meetings and prepares and presents expert planning evidence at judicial hearings on planning and related matters. It is also the responsibility of the Director to communicate and make recommendations on strategic initiatives from the Province and other levels of government."

According to the March 2013 Sunshine List for 2012 salaries, the position paid $119,790 annually. That would have increased through the 2013 and pending 2014 budget.

The Town is accepting resumes until 4:30 p.m. Friday, January 17th, 2014.
