A familiar face in the eyes of Philadelphia urbanists just landed on University City District‘s roster of executives.
As of this week, recent city council at-large candidate Andrew Stober is the economic development organization’s vice president of urban planning and economic development.
Stober recently ran for city council as an independent, but more importantly, he’s co-credited with the launch of the city’s bike share program Indego in his former position as chief of staff for the Mayor’s Office of Transportation and Utilities (MOTU). In his capacity at MOTU, Stober has helped bring 600 new digital bus shelters to the city, played a significant role in a massive pedestrian safety push and was an active proponent of forging public-private partnerships.
“There is an important opportunity to use new public spaces, improved transportation options and commercial corridor support to make University City an international model for inclusive development,” said Stober in a press release.
In his new position, Stober will be working on developing University City’s public space and commercial corridors, as well as continuing his work in pedestrian safety and transportation improvements.-30-
