DiGiuseppe takes new job in Rhode Island

Wednesday, March 1, 2017 by Jo Clifton

Paul DiGiuseppe, a principal planner with the city’s Planning and Zoning Department, will be leaving the city for a big job in his home state of Rhode Island. DiGiuseppe told the Austin Monitor that he still has family and friends in Rhode Island and is excited about moving back home. In his new job, he will be assistant chief of the state’s Division of Planning and will be working on transportation planning, he said. DiGiuseppe described the state agency as akin to CAMPO, the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization. DiGiuseppe, who joined city staff in 2006, has most recently worked as part of the CodeNEXT team. His work included writing certain papers, called prescription papers, as well as public outreach. Dave Sullivan, a member of the CodeNEXT advisory group, described DiGiuseppe as “an excellent city employee” and “a key member of the staff.” DiGiuseppe follows several other members of the CodeNEXT team who have left the city for greener pastures. Friends and co-workers may join him for happy hour on Thursday at the Ginger Man, Sullivan said. His last day at the city is Friday.
