City to fill parks-projects position

Posted By on Wed, Dec 28, 2011 at 12:18 PM

Someone in the city will continue working to open the Incline.

Earlier this month, I wrote "Brain drain," an article that addressed the decimation of the city's Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services' staff.

Long story short, the department has shriveled during the recession and lost some of its best talent. At the time of my writing, one of the department's top performers, Sarah Bryarly, was resigning in order to become a full-time mom.

Bryarly oversaw all the projects funded through the city's Trails, Open Space and Parks tax. That's pretty much all the big parks projects you ever hear about. (The South Slope and the Manitou Incline come to mind.) It was hard to imagine the parks department running without someone taking over the reins when Bryarly left, but the mayor's office had not yet approved replacing Bryarly.

Luckily, that's changed. The city has approval to hire someone for Bryarly's position and already has the job posted here.
