There’s a new face at Gardner City Hall.
Michael Hall’s first day as Gardner Community Development Director was Feb. 11.
Hall served as the planning and development director for the Capital City Development Corporation in Boise, Idaho, prior to coming to Gardner.
“There’s a lot of work to be done,” Hall said as he was introduced to Gardner City Council members on Feb. 18. “I’m thrilled to be here.”
Hall’s experience includes several years of sales and customer service in the private sector as more than 18 years in local government work including zoning administration; neighborhood and transportation planning; and downtown revitalization.
The community development director staff position is a result of a reorganization of city staff following the departure of assistant city administrator Melissa Mundt.
“Mike brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the city of Gardner,” city administrator Cheryl Harrison-Lee said in a press release. “He will be an asset in helping develop our vision to move the city forward.”
Hall’s family remains in Boise, but will be joining him within the next three months.
