Kudos to South Jordan city for hiring George Shaw as the community development director. He is recognized in the city-planning field as a consummate professional. His expertise is often sought after for planning forums and as an instructor in university planning courses. When George served as the Sandy city planner, I had the pleasure of working with him during my 24 years as a member of the City Council. I found him to be a tireless worker and a man of great vision and integrity. We relied on his vast capabilities as our city grew into a well-planned community.

Salt Lake City's loss is certainly South Jordan's gain.
