Mayor Miro Weinberger Announces CEDO Director Noelle MacKay is Departing City to Accept Position as Chief Operating Officer of the Regulatory Assistance Project
MacKay to Conclude Successful Tenure on May 25; City of Burlington to Conduct Open Search Process for Successor

 

Burlington, VT – Mayor Miro Weinberger today announced that Community & Economic Development Office (CEDO) Director Noelle MacKay will be accepting the role of Chief Operating Officer at the Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP), and will be concluding her successful tenure with the City on May 25. RAP is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to accelerating the transition to a clean, reliable, and efficient energy future, and has offices in Montpelier, Europe, and China. As CEDO Director since 2016, MacKay played a critical role in a number of important community and development projects, including leading the City’s engagement with the CityPlace Burlington and new marina projects, overseeing CEDO’s lead program, and supporting the growth and development of the My Brother’s Keeper initiative and restorative practices in partnership with the Burlington School District. 
 

“I am grateful for Noelle’s service to the City of Burlington and our community,” said Mayor Miro Weinberger. “Noelle has done skillful work advancing projects that will transform our downtown and waterfront, as well as overseeing impactful community initiatives, all of which has helped Burlington better realize its promise as a city of opportunity for people of all backgrounds to live, work, and thrive.”
 

“Serving the City of Burlington has been an incredible privilege,” said Noelle MacKay. “I will miss the passion and dedication of the Mayor and the entire City team, who Burlingtonians are lucky to have working for them. I am excited to take on the new challenge of serving as COO of the Regulatory Assistance Project.”
 

Prior to becoming the CEDO Director, MacKay served for five years as the Executive Director of Smart Growth Vermont, and for five years as Commissioner of the Department of Housing and Community Development, where she focused on developing housing policy, overseeing the Mobile Home Park Program, coordinating recovery efforts after Hurricane Irene, and strengthening Vermont’s downtowns.

 

MacKay intends to continue to serve as CEDO Director through May 25, and may continue some project-specific duties as a consultant beyond her departure date. The Mayor’s Office will be publicly posting the CEDO Director position in the weeks ahead. Anyone interested in learning more can contact the City at mayor@burlingtonvt.gov.
