New Planning & Zoning Director Appointed in Palm Beach

On Monday, the Town of Palm Beach will welcome a new planning and zoning director. His name is Joshua Martin according to Palm Beach Daily News. Martin is from the South Carolina area.

Found on the  Charleston Leaders, Martin was “one of the top 30 young professional urban planners in 2009 by Next American City.” He also served as the senior advisor to the Charleston Mayor, John Tecklenburg. Martin has served fourteen years within his field of public and private planning.

Martin, according to Charleston Current, earned about $120,000 while on the Mayor’s planning team and focused on “economic development and planning.” Martin holds a Masters in planning from Clemson University.

The Town of Palm Beach website describes the planning and zoning committee as “The Planning and Zoning Commission acts in an advisory capacity to the town council in all matters relating to municipal planning and development.” In order to serve on the board, you must be registered to vote in the town.

John Page, the former director of the committee, retired after 12 years, according to Palm Beach Daily News. Page had served 39 years in government. Many members of the committee spoke highly of him a few months back, as they said their goodbyes.
