Mayor Palmer DePaulis has named a former senior vice president of a real estate consulting firm as the city's new redevelopment agency director.
Alice Larkin Steiner was named in a Wednesday morning news conference to fill the position that has been vacant since February when Michael Chitwood resigned.Steiner was one of two finalists DePaulis considered for the position.
"She will be a breath of fresh air," said DePaulis."She was chosen because of her compatibility to the new image of the RDA."
He said she has strong links to the community, including her involvement in the Salt Lake Performing Arts Coalition. She also has broad experience in budgeting and has restructured several financial institutions.
