New director takes over at Douglas County planning department
ROSEBURG, Ore. -- After almost fifty years, the Douglas County Planning Department has a new director.
Joshua Shaklee is replacing Keith Cubic starting this week.
Shaklee was first hired as a planning manager with Douglas County in June of 2017.
He says he has big shoes to fill, but has learned a lot from Cubic along the way, including from "his knowledge and also his management style," Shaklee said, "and hope to continue that tradition going forward."
Shaklee says the planning department is working on several projects for the coming fiscal year.
Those include an update to the county's Wildfire Protection Plan.
