New Tecumseth to welcome new Director of Planning and Building 

NEW TECUMSETH, ON – The Town of New Tecumseth is pleased to soon welcome its new Director of Planning and Building. 

The Town will welcome Jennifer Best to the position, effective April 6, 2021. 

Ms. Best brings more than 20 years of experience to the Town of New Tecumseth, the last 10 as a Senior Planner with the Region of York. Prior to her work with the Region, she worked with both the Town of Aurora and the Township of King. In her previous roles, Ms. Best led numerous planning studies and managed several complex development plans and applications. 

“The experience that Ms. Best will bring to the Town of New Tecumseth as the Director of Planning and Building will be very valuable for our community,” said New Tecumseth Mayor Rick Milne. “On behalf of Council and staff, we welcome Ms. Best to her new role and look forward to working with her and her dedicated team.” 

As Director of Planning and Building, Ms. Best will lead the Development and Policy Planning areas as well as the Building Standards division. 

Ms. Best’s acceptance of this position has filled a vacancy due to the former Director of Planning and Building, Bruce Hoppe, advancing to the position of General Manager of Infrastructure and Development for the Town.
