The city’s interim director of planning and building services will keep the job.

Scot Siegel, appointed to the temporary post over the summer, came out on top in an open recruitment process that netted more than 50 applicants, according to the city.

Siegel has lived in Lake Oswego for almost two decades and once served on the planning commission.

He ran a private consulting company in Lake Oswego for nine years and, in 2012, served as interim planning director for the city of Milwaukie, where he oversaw a staff working on long-range planning and development review during light-rail permitting and construction.

He has more than 20 years of planning experience in the public and private sectors, according to the city.

City Manager Scott Lazenby announced Siegel’s appointment to the permanent position in the council digest, a collection of reports from city departments distributed each week.

“Scot shares my view that good planning and high standards for the quality of the built environment are not at all incompatible with excellent customer service for residents and property owners who apply for permits,” the announcement stated. “I look forward to working with Scot and his staff over the coming years.”
