The Executive Director of the Valparaiso Redevelopment Commission has announced he will leave the position effective the end of this year. Stuart Summers has served with the Redevelopment Commission since 1995 and was appointed executive director in 2002.
“I have been involved in numerous projects during my time with the Commission,” Summers said, “and I have thoroughly enjoyed serving Valparaiso. Summers commented that he believes that with the recent signing of the Pratt expansion project it would be a good time to move on. “I will still be around, and I will assist in helping the transition (to a new Executive Director) go smoothly."
Summers, 58, said he will focus on his other business interests and personal objectives. Summers owns Excel Driving Instruction in Valparaiso, does governmental consulting and is a resolution arbitrator for FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority).
