Mayor: Zoning Officer on Board
Mayor Zimmer Announces New Zoning Officer
Mayor Dawn Zimmer announced today her appointment of Ann Holtzman as Zoning Officer, effective February 22nd. “Ann Holtzman will be an excellent addition to our City,” Mayor Zimmer said. “She has been passionate about Hoboken’s community development for many years, and is a strong voice in our community for balanced development and fair process.”
Ms. Holtzman has been involved in Hoboken’s development community for many years. She was integrally involved in Hoboken’s Master Plan preparation process, as well as having years of experience refurbishing and renovating buildings in town. Ms. Holtzman also has extensive management experience. She has pledged to focus on making the Zoning office not only user-friendly, but a public resource for information and guidance.
“I look forward to working with Ms. Holtzman to ensure the zoning office runs as smoothly as possible for the citizens of Hoboken,” Mayor Zimmer said. This new hire brings the Zoning office to full staffing to meet the needs of Hoboken. “We can now begin integrating all of our Community Development departments to work in better harmony together.”
Talking Ed Note: Usually we don’t say much with an official announcement but just last night we had a chance to get a picture with Ann sitting two seats away in the City Council Chambers. We told her to lean away as we didn’t want to get a “civilian” in the shot. Little did we know.
Congratulations to Ann and best of luck in the new position!
