Carol Rubin, who worked for 16 years with Montgomery County Park and Planning, was appointed Tuesday to the Montgomery County Planning Board.
Rubin retired as a special project manager for the county planning department and previously served as acting deputy planning director. She coordinated the Maryland-National Capital Planning Commission’s response to the state’s I-495 and I-270 managed lanes road widening project.
She served for more than seven years as assistant county attorney in the Office of County Attorney before working at Park and Planning.
“Ms. Rubin has dedicated over 20 years to public service in Montgomery County, including 16 years with Park and Planning,” said Council President Tom Hucker. “We are thrilled that she will bring her passion for Montgomery County, in-depth knowledge and breadth of experience to the Planning Board.”
The Montgomery County Chapter of the Sierra Club and Action for Transit both backed Rubin for the position.
She was appointed to complete the four-year term of former member Natali Fani-Gonzalez, who resigned on Aug. 31, 2021 and is running for County Council.
Planning board members serve as the council’s principal adviser on land use planning and community planning. They also serve as commissioners of the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission.
I want to extend a heartfelt congratulations to Ms. Carol Rubin on her appointment to the @MontgomeryPlans Planning Board.
