The City of Easton Planning Director, Becky Bradley, will be leaving her position with the city in mid-July to become the executive director of the Lehigh Valley Planning Commission, it was announced today.

"The loss to the City of Easton is the Lehigh Valley’s gain," said Easton Mayor Sal Panto in a media release. "Her professional training in planning and design was very helpful in the professional application process especially with the amount of economic development taking place."

He touted her accomplishments since taking on the Easton planning department's directorship, citing the adoption of "Smart Code" and her initiative in developing a new Comprehensive Plan for the city.

Bradley has been the city planning department director since 2008, having been promoted to the position after being hired as chief city planner in 2006.

Panto said the city wil immediately begin to search for a new planning and codes department director.

"It is our hope that an individual with her training and caliber of professionalism is found," Panto said.

Promoting current Chief City Planner Brian Gish is not an option, as he has given the city notice that he will be leaving the position in mid-July to pursue a doctorate degree in geology.

The city is reportedly already advertising to fill his position.
