WESTPORT, Conn. -- Westport First Selectman Jim Marpe announced Wednesday that he has accepted the resignation of Planning and Zoning Director Larry Bradley.
Bradley has accepted the position of planning director with the Seminole Tribe of Florida and will be relocating to the South Florida area.
Bradley was appointed to the position of Planning and Zoning director in June, 2005. His final day at Town Hall will be Feb. 5.
“The Town is very grateful for Larry’s dedicated service throughout the years," Marpe said. "His expertise in some very complicated and at times, volatile, land use matters in Town has proved invaluable. I wish him all the best in this new opportunity."
Bradley said, “I am very proud of my over ten years of service to the citizens of Westport and the many accomplishments that my staff and I have achieved during my tenure. I appreciate all the support and encouragement that the Planning and Zoning Commission, the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) and the Architecture Review Board (ARB) have provided to me and my department.” Bradley continued, “I wish to express my deepest thanks to the Town of Westport and my staff with whom I have served and worked for the past decade with great pride and respect.”
A search process for a new director will be undertaken shortly. Marpe added that while Bradley's leadership and expertise will be missed, he has full confidence in the ability of the Planning and Zoning staff, in conjunction with the Planning and Zoning Commission, the Zoning Board of Appeals and the Architecture Review Board, to deal appropriately and expeditiously with the various applications before them while the search process is being completed.
