A visitor to the Capital City Development Corporation might soon think they stepped into an annex of Boise City Hall.
CCDC, Boise's urban renewal agency, has announced that it has offered the position of executive director to John Brunelle, director of the Office of Economic Development for the city of Boise. Brunelle fills the slot that was recently opened when former director Anthony Lyons quit to return to Gainesville, Fla.
Brunelle is scheduled to begin in his new post on Monday, June 17.
When Brunelle attends his first official meeting of the CCDC Board of Commissioners later this month, he'll be in familiar company. Sitting to his right will be his old boss, Mayor Dave Bieter, alongside Boise City Councilman David Eberle. To his left will be Boise City Councilwoman Lauren McClean. Bieter, Eberle and McClean are all members of the CCDC board, which approved Brunelle's hiring.
