Delta County Board of Commissioners announced Monday that Carl Holm, AICP, will take over as the community development and natural resources director for Delta County. Holm replaces Elyse Ackerman-Casselberry who moved on to become Delta City Manager in August.
Holm has over 30 years of experience in community development and resource management; he currently owns property outside of Cedaredge. Holm will relocate to Delta County from Monterey, California, where he serves as resource management agency director. He has significant and practical experience in principles and practices in community planning, land use policies, regulations, subdivision and transportation planning, parks and recreation as well as federal lands.
Holm is eager to begin working with constituents, staff and agency representatives as the recently adopted land use code is implemented throughout Delta County, according to the county’s press release. Holm will also serve as the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission Local Government Designee for Delta County.
He will start with Delta County on Jan. 27, 2021, and will be housed in the Planning and Community Development office located at 295 W. Sixth St. in Delta.
