Heather Marlow has resigned as City and Borough of Juneau Lands and Resources Manager.
City Manager Kim Kiefer and Deputy Manager Rob Steedle declined to comment, calling it an internal personnel matter. Department heads serve at the pleasure of the City Manager and it’s not clear if Marlow was asked to resign or stepped down by choice.
Steedle said via email that the search for a new Lands and Resources Manager will start as soon as possible.
Marlow had been in her current position since 2006. She previously worked five years as a Planner for the city’s Community Development Department.
She was born in Juneau, and has a bachelor’s degree in Urban Planning from Eastern Washington University and a Master’s of Public Administration from the University of Kansas.
The Lands and Resources Department manages the sale, acquisition and leasing of land on behalf of the city. It also oversees development of land use plans, and is responsible for issuing air quality alerts.
In recent years, Marlow has worked with the city’s affordable housing commission. She also represented the city in efforts to extend North Douglas Highway into the West Douglas area.
