Saco hires city planner

The city of Saco announced the hiring of Zach Mosher as the new city planner. Mosher most recently worked as planner for the city of Auburn where he reviewed projects for subdivision, site plan and local and state ordinance compliance. He was also the primary staff liaison to the Auburn Planning Board.

Saco’s most recent city planner, Bob Hamblen, retired.

Mosher has previously served as community development specialist at the Lincoln County Regional Planning Commission in Wiscasset, providing planning and GIS assistance to the towns of Lincoln County. He has a master’s degree in community planning from the Muskie School of Public Service at the University of Southern Maine, with specializations in GIS and applied research and evaluation methods.

“Zach is experienced in bringing developers, city staff, and other stakeholders together to identify the strengths, issues, or concerns of an application early in the planning process. This creates an efficient, transparent, and smooth experience for all parties involved. We are excited to have Zach join our team and are looking forward to his collaborative approach to planning,” said Denise Clavette, the city’s planning and development director, in a press release.
