LAKE COUNTY, Calif. (April 18, 2018) – At their meeting on April 17, 2018, the Board of Supervisors unanimously appointed Michalyn DelValle Interim Community Development Director for the County.
Michalyn DelValle has a Bachelor’s degree in Management and has worked in Community Development at the County of Lake for more than 10 years. Since 2016 she has served as Principal Planner for Community Development’s planning division.
A nearly life-long Lake County resident, DelValle comes from an extended family that has a history of public service. Following their lead, she chose a career in local government to give back to her community. Her father worked as a local real estate broker when she was a child, and his discussions of land-use inspired her interest in this area. This prompted her decision to pursue a career in Community Development.
DelValle readily acknowledges challenges in Community Development and sees the opportunities that they present. “For example,” DelValle stated, “We have opportunities to revise our land use plans and our zoning ordinances to create a more business friendly environment.” She is ready to take on this and other challenges in her new role.
DelValle appreciates the Board’s confidence in her ability to fill this interim role and looks forward to serving in this assignment. Michalyn DelValle’s appointment is effective on Friday, April 20, 2018.
