Charley Stump graduated from Chico State University with a BA in geography and an emphasis in community and regional planning. He then spent what he considers some of the best times of his life as a Peace Corps volunteer in Micronesia. His work in urban planning has spanned 26 years including seven in Marin County and four in Paradise, Ca. He was hired by the city in 1994 and became the director of planning and community development in 1999.

He manages and supervises the Department of Planning and Community Development and has a staff of seven. His department is multifaceted and includes planning permit review, long range planning, environmental review, economic development, building plan check and inspection, and code compliance. The department also plays a key role in the city's redevelopment program.

The planning permit review and building plan check/inspection functions seek to ensure that all proposed development is in compliance with local and state laws. Current long range planning projects include the new downtown zoning code, general plan housing element update, the courthouse relocation project, and the Municipal Service Review/sphere of influence update. Environmental review

involves analyzing projects to determine their potential impacts on the environment. Recent documents were prepared for the Low Gap Road skate park, the City View Trail project, and the Redevelopment Agency property acquisition project.

The planning staff manage the redevelopment agency's fašade improvement grant program, housing rehabilitation grant program, and the first time home buyer loan program. The annual salary range for his job is $99,600 to $121,200.

Focusing on infill development and redevelopment are methods being used to alleviate the growth pressures being felt by Ukiah, a city that is reaching build-out, Stump said.

The economic development program is working on supporting local businesses and recruiting new businesses according to Stump. They are also working with a variety of interest groups to promote green industries, green product manufacturing and associated businesses to create opportunity for higher paying jobs that will help stabilize and create a more sustainable local economy.

"Such an approach may allow young people to remain in the community, build a career, buy a home and raise a family," Stump said.
