Warren Campbell, the town’s chief of planning in the Community Development Department, has resigned to take a similar planning job in Sedona, Ariz. His last day in Vail is Friday, May 8. Campbell’s many accomplishments were recognized this week by members of the Vail Town Council and Community Development Director George Ruther during the Council’s regular meeting on May 5.
Originally from Rockville, Md., Campbell was hired by the town in 2002 as a planner II and was promoted to senior planner in 2004. He has served as chief of planning since 2007. During Campbell’s tenure, he has helped shape numerous developments and master plans that will help guide Vail’s continued success. Examples include the recently completed master plan for the Vail Valley Medical Center campus and the Solaris redevelopment project.
Campbell says he’s most proud of his participation in the redevelopment of Vail during the Billion Dollar Renewal. He says he’s made many friends within the organization and in the development community during his 13 years in Vail and encourages them to visit him in Sedona.
Ruther says Campbell’s role with the town will long be remembered for his exceptional work ethic and commitment to providing the highest level of customer service. “Warren’s departure is a significant loss for Vail and an exceptional gain for Sedona. We wish him all the best," said Ruther.
