Dana Zuckerman, who has served on the Capital City Development Corporation's board of commissioners since 2011, will become the agency's interim director after Feb. 5.
That's the last day for Anthony Lyons, who recently announced his resignation as executive director of the agency.
Zuckerman, 39, said she has a master's degree in public policy and spent time working in urban policy in New York City and Chicago before becoming a full-time, stay-at-home mom. She said she'll serve as director until the agency finds a permanent replacement for Lyons. It's unclear how long that will take.
Lyons said family considerations were his reason for leaving Boise. He is set to return to Gainesville, Fla., where he lived before coming to Boise, and resume his old job as director for that city's urban renewal agency.
In the search for a permanent replacement for Lyons, the agency's board of commissioners will look for candidates to continue his push to focus agency resources on new construction, said Phil Reberger, chairman of the board of commissioners.
