The City of Williams Lake is pleased to announce the promotion of Hasib Nadvi to the position of Manager of Planning & Development. Hasib will be responsible for planning and development applications brought before the City, acting as the Approving Officer. This role works closely with the Building Services, Municipal Services and Economic Development departments on various long-term planning, capital construction, and community development projects.
Furthermore, Hasib will serve as a technical liaison with outside consulting, engineering and development companies, with the responsibility to ensure that projects are in conformance with approved plans, engineering designs, and municipal bylaws. This position is part of the City’s ongoing strategic succession plan within Development Services. Hasib joined the City of Williams Lake three years ago as a Planner 2 after finishing his Bachelor of Science from McMaster University, Bachelor of Planning from the University of Northern British Columbia and acquiring his Urban Design Certification from Simon Fraser University.
“The City is an excellent organization and I truly enjoy working with my fellow colleagues. I hope to continue to work diligently with our residents, development and business community to work towards achieving the shared community vision for Williams Lake. I am thrilled to carry on working in my new role for a community that is so warm and welcoming,” said Hasib.
Milo Macdonald, Chief Administrative Officer, stated “Hasib joined the City three years ago and has been a big contributor to our organization. He has been very busy with all the development going on in town but somehow found time to work towards his Master’s Degree in Planning, which he will complete next year. I always enjoy working with Hasib because of the sensible, friendly approach he takes to ensure that people who are developing or building in our community get an explanation of the process to achieve their goals. Hasib has been an important part of all the positive growth that we have seen in the community over the last three years and we are fortunate to have him.”
The position’s effective start date is Wednesday, May 29th, 2019
