Steuben County has announced the appointment of Marie Myers Shearing as its new County Planner. This comes after the previous planner resigned last summer to take up a new job in Rochester.
Myers Shearing, a graduate of Finger Lakes Community College and the University at Buffalo, was selected after an extensive nationwide search. The County expressed its confidence in her ability to improve the municipalities individually and, by extension, enhance the County as a whole.
“Although the County is only advisory on many land use issues, I believe that being available as a partner and resource will improve the municipalities individually,” said Myers Shearing.
Prior to her appointment, Myers Shearing had worked as the Cattaraugus County Planner and had also served in Niagara Falls. She is a recipient of the New York and Western New York American Planning Association Awards and is a NYS Certified Nursery and Landscape Professional.
At present, Myers Shearing is overseeing Steuben County’s Agricultural District campaign. Her appointment is expected to enhance the County’s development and bring about greater success in its various initiatives.
