During Mansfield City Council’s Caucus Meeting on Monday evening, Public Works Director David Remy shared news of a newly filled position for the City of Mansfield.
Actually, it was not a new employee, but rather a new title for a currently hired individual.
Adrian Ackerman started in the position of Community Development Director for the City, with Monday being her first day on the job.
Remy shared that Ackerman had worked for the department for the last five or six years. She replaces Tracy Bond, who had served in the role since 2018 until her April.
At first, Ackerman will be working largely from home, although the office does operate on a split shift, he added.
According to the City of Mansfield website, the Community Development Office “The Community Development Office develops and administers programs, activities, and policies that assist in the creation of economically viable and sustainable neighborhoods. We believe in using holistic approaches toward neighborhood revitalization, housing assistance, and community development projects. These projects build or expand infrastructures; upgrade public facilities; upgrade the existing housing stock; expand homeownership opportunities and affordable rental housing; and promote economic development.”
