I’m excited to announce a new addition to the planning, building and licensing team. Last week, Tim Parks started with the City as the planning division’s new manager of development approvals! In this capacity, Tim will oversee the review of applications for development projects before they proceed to construction.
Tim has over 25 years of municipal government experience, working with both the City of Toronto and the City of North York. He has an extensive background in a range of fields, including community planning, real estate services and parks, forestry and recreation and, as a Registered Professional Planner with a Master’s Degree in Urban Planning, Tim brings a great deal of technical expertise to the planning team.
In his role as the manager of development approvals, Tim will personally administer many of the complex planning files and development approvals that the City is currently working on, while advising and guiding both staff and residents on how to most effectively navigate the development approval process.
Tim has a track record of planning and leadership excellence, and I look forward to working with him as we strive to plan a livable and inclusive Kingston.
