Millbrae Hires Brad Misner as New Community Development Director
The City of Millbrae is proud to announce the hire of Brad Misner as the City’s new Community Development Director.
Misner comes to the City with more than 20 years of experience in the field of urban planning and has worked on some of the most complex land use planning and development projects in California. In his new role, Misner will oversee and lead all aspects of the Community Development Department including current and long land-use planning, building permit issuance, code enforcement, and economic development, including vitalizing the business districts in Millbrae.
“We are very excited to have Brad join our team,” said Millbrae Mayor Wayne Lee. “He brings a tremendous amount of experience in helping other communities redevelop land into needed housing, and commercial, which will shape Millbrae for the next five decades. Millbrae is at a critical period amiss a housing crisis and rising operating costs. Brad has the knowledge and experience in navigating a balance of providing a vibrant economic base to pay for critical services to accommodate the new residents.”
He has managed General Plan preparations, created new Affordable Housing Ordinances, led planning divisions in all current and long-range planning activities, and served as the liaison to the Planning Commissions. He also led teams in the review of major construction urban in-fill projects adjacent to a newly constructed Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station, ranging from new high rise (12-22 stories) residential developments, to hotels, mixed-use, commercial, and low-rise residential developments.
“As a past planning director in California, Brad has proven his success in managing other community development departments and driving good growth,” said Millbrae City Manager Tom Williams. “His leadership and experience will be a valued asset as he and his team help drive the development of the Millbrae Station projects.”
