The town has hired a new community planning administrator.

She formerly was staff planner for the city of Salem for four years, according to Town Administrator Greg Balukonis. Prior to that, she worked as a planner/conservation agent for the town of Swampscott. As head of the town’s community planning department, McKnight is expected to help guide North Reading’s economic development and growth while maintaining the town’s rural residential character, Balukonis said.
