City neighborhood adviser Gibbs retires

Thursday, January 27, 2022 by Amy Smith

Anyone who’s been knee-deep in neighborhood issues over the years has probably had contact with Carol Gibbs, the friendly adviser, facilitator and translator of bureaucratese with the city of Austin. Now, after 13 years as the face of the Neighborhood Assistance Center, Gibbs is retiring from the city, but it’s likely she’ll continue to be called on in times of neighborhood need. Throughout her tenure she has worked in four different yet similar departments, including Neighborhood Planning and Zoning, Planning and Zoning, Planning and Development Review and Development Services. Multiple City Councils have come and gone under her watch. The current Council will send her off today, Thursday, with a proclamation from Council Member Kathie Tovo. We wish Gibbs well in her retirement.
