VACAVILLE — Barton Brierley has been selected as the next community development director for Vacaville.
“We’re excited that Barton is joining our team,” City Manager Laura Kuhn said Friday in a city press release. “He brings a lot of experience and a new perspective to Vacaville. His strengths, together with the strengths of our current planning staff, will help lead community development into the future.”
Brierley is currently the planning and building director for Newburg, Ore., where he has worked for the past 15 years. His first day on the job in Vacaville is April 16. He replaces Maureen Carson, who retired at the end of January after more than 30 years with the city.
“I am very excited to come to Vacaville,” Brierley said in the press release. “I have been very impressed with the community’s downtown, the friendliness of the people and the sense of pride.”
A graduate of Oregon State University, Brierley also worked in the Grants Pass, Ore. planning department for 11 years.
“Community involvement is very important to me and I hope to become very engaged,” Brierley said in the press statement.
