Council Appoints Planning Veteran to Planning Board

The County Council appointed Carol Rubin, who recently retired as a special project manager for the county’s Planning Department, yesterday to the Planning Board.

“Ms. Rubin has dedicated over 20 years to public service in Montgomery County, including 16 years with Park and Planning,” Council President Tom Hucker (D-District 5) said in a press release. “We are thrilled that she will bring her passion for Montgomery County, in-depth knowledge and breadth of experience to the Planning Board.”

“Carol’s deep knowledge of the legal and policy issues in land use, transportation, and parks will make her a fantastic addition to the Planning Board,” said Planning Board Chair Casey Anderson in a separate release. “We welcome Carol to the board and look forward to her sharing her expertise.”

Rubin will fill out the term of Natali Fani-Gonzalez, who resigned Aug. 31 and announced a run for County Council.

Rubin served as acting deputy planning director with oversight responsibility for the Divisions of County wide Planning and Policy, Management Services, Information Technology and Innovation and Research and Strategic Projects. 

She served more than seven years as assistant county attorney in the Office of County Attorney and sixteen years at Montgomery County Park and Planning.

Earlier in her career, she worked on land-use issues for local developer Lloyd Moore and was part of the team that brought Discovery to Silver Spring.

During the virtual meeting with the council, Rubin said, “Thank you for the faith you have in me to carry forward in this important role, I’m ready to get to work.”
