The current manager of land use services for the City of Campbell River, Blackwell, a 25-year community development veteran will assume his new role effective June 30.

He will be responsible for overseeing community and regional planning, development services, parks & trails, environmental initiatives, economic development, building inspection and bylaw enforcement.

Anderson is one of five senior staffers to depart the CVRD for various reasons this spring.
