What is happening with the new Vancouver chief planner job?
Q: What’s going on with the City of Vancouver’s search for a new Chief Planner? Surely they’re getting close Frances. Any news?
A. Good question. I had heard there was a first round of interviews in May, second round in early June. Four candidates on shortlist. Told last week by city manager that announcement was imminent. Now I’m hearing rumours of some kind of glitch that has delayed things, may lead to a re-posting? That’s everything I know. (Well, not quite everything, but I do have to respect certain confidences.)
