ST. PAUL-Blair Tremere, a member of the Golden Valley city council and a former planning official for several local communities, has been named director of community development for the Metropolitan Council. The appointment was announced by Tom Weaver, regional administrator of the Met Council, who says Tremere has a “wealth of experience in planning and public administration at the local and state levels.”

As community development director, Tremere will oversee the council’s programs and staff in the areas of planning, research, housing, and regional parks and open space. Tremere has served on the council’s land use advisory committee and as chair of its livable communities advisory committee. The latter group screens applications and makes recommendations for about $14 million a year in grants to local communities to help clean up contaminated lands, expand the supply of affordable housing and encourage development that links housing, jobs and services.

Since 1999, Tremere has served as the administrator for several Minnesota House committees, including the committee on local government and metropolitan affairs. Previously, Tremere served for 23 years in planning and managerial roles in local government–including 13 years as director of community development for Plymouth, two years as assistant city manager of Brooklyn Center and five years as planning and inspection director of that city. He also served as assistant city manager/economic development director of Prior Lake for two years.

A resident of Golden Valley since 1977, Tremere served as mayor of that city in 1994-95. He resigned from the city council effective July 21 to accept his new position with the Met Council.
