Nashua hires development chief
Mayor Donnalee Lozeau has selected Sarah Marchant of Brookline from five finalists — chosen from more than 50 candidates.
Marchant has served since 2007 on the executive board of the New Hampshire Planners Association, and is in her fourth year as president. For the past two years, she has worked as Amherst’s community development director and zoning administrator. Marchant has a bachelor’s degree from the University of New Hampshire and a master’s degree from the University of Connecticut.
Lozeau described Marchant as a people person with good communication skills and a wealth of knowledge in the planning field. Her salary will be close to $92,000, according to the mayor.
“Since joining the planning community in 2005, Sarah has spearheaded a wide range of projects, including a comprehensive rewriting of subdivision and site plan regulations, and public works standards and zoning ordinance changes,” says a biography provided by the mayor’s office.
The role was previously held by Katherine Hersh, who retired last summer after 10 years in the position.
