Planning director Jeff Levine is leaving this month for a post in Portland, Maine, where he will be the city’s director of planning and urban development. Levine has worked for the town for roughly nine years, including nearly two as assistant director of the planning department. Reached by phone, Levine said he was most proud of bringing the St. Aiden’s housing development to completion, and nearly finishing the development on Fisher Hill. “It’s a good opportunity for him,” said Betsy DeWitt, chairwoman of the Board of Selectmen. “We’re very happy for him.” Town Administrator Mel Kleckner appointed Kara Brewton, the town’s economic development director, to serve as acting head of the Planning and Community Development Department.
