Rebecca Augur is new Zoning Enforcement Officer

From the Town Manager's office yesterday:

Town Manager Michael Milone has announced the appointment of Rebecca Augur as Assistant Town Planner/Zoning and Inland Wetlands Enforcement Officer. Ms. Augur will start work on August 4, 2008 and replaces Lisa Murphy who left the Town this spring after nearly 18 years in the position to become a regional planner in Keene, New Hampshire.

Ms. Augur comes to Cheshire from the Capital Regional Council of Governments in Hartford where she currently holds the position of Senior Community Development Planner. She previously worked as a research assistant for the Environmental Institute in Amherst, Massachusetts and as a consultant and research assistant for the Community Development Office in Chicopee, Massachusetts while attending the University of Massachusetts where she earned a Master’s in Regional Planning. Prior to attending UMass, she spent over four years as a research analyst with the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities.

Ms. Augur was one of twenty-five candidates who applied for the position and one of nine finalists interviewed by an oral panel of three planning professionals.
