Campbell River’s new development engineer in Around Town

September 26, 2019

There’s new support on the way for development in Campbell River. City Council has approved a new community development engineer position to streamline the review of development applications – and to help keep up with anticipated future demand.

The City of Campbell River is helping to streamline the development permit application process with a new community development engineer. The new position begins in October.

The City’s former utilities manager, Jennifer Peters, will take on this new role by early October. Peters is a professional engineer and worked in private industry before joining the City in 2010. As the community development engineer, she will lead Campbell River’s development engineering services and will also be instrumental in assisting the City in long term planning for major capital assets for the organization. 

Peters was previously the utilities manager, and the City will recruit for a new person to fill this position.
