Randy Houle has been hired as Oliver’s director of development services, which is a newly created position.
Houle will oversee a small department assuming responsibility for the long-term planning, current planning, building inspection, bylaw enforcement, subdivision and community development for the town.
Houle is an Oliver native who has a master’s degree in planning from the University of Waterloo. He spent the last three years as a planner with the City of Penticton. Before that he worked for the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen where he, among other duties, led the mosquito control program.
“We look forward to welcoming Randy to our organization and community,” Oliver chief administrative officer Cathy Cowan said in a press release. “The town has experienced recent development growth and interest, leading to the need to hire a director of development services.
“I am confident that Randy will effectively manage the challenges that presents along with the development services team.”
