New Director of Development Services joins Saugeen Shores team

Mark Paoli is joining Saugeen Shores staff as its new Director of Development Services.

Paoli is joining the Town after four years at the County of Bruce, most recently as the Director of Planning and Development, building on his 30-year municipal career.

A member of the Bruce County management team since 2018 and having served as Director since December of 2020, he helped guide the County through the timeline of the pandemic while continuing to assist local municipalities to be development ready and attract economic development opportunity. He also led initiatives that improved the County’s land use planning services and built on the County’s strong tourism, agriculture, and energy sectors.

His expertise ranges from senior policy planning and Geographical Information Systems (GIS) to economic development and administration of the development process.

“We’re happy to have Mark’s wealth of experience here in Saugeen Shores,” says Mayor Luke Charbonneau. “His direct experience with land use planning here and across Bruce County will be a great asset as we continue to manage the growth of our community.”

“I’m happy to be a part of such a thriving municipality,” said Paoli. “I believe that good planning and growth management are essential to providing effective infrastructure, quality services and healthy communities.”

The Director of Development Services leads all activities dealing with planning and building in the Town, along with engineering services and asset management.

Paoli will start his new position at the Town on June 24, 2022.
