Dear Human Resources Director:

Enclosed please find my application and resume for the Planner III - position advertised
on the Westminster website. I am confident that my experience, background and skills
will be an effective match for Westminster’s needs.

As the Planning Director for the City of Buckley, WA, I prepared amendments to the
Comprehensive Plan, enacted progressive Municipal Code changes, conducted many
public meetings, performed plan review, staffed numerous commissions and boards, and
led the Planning Commission (by dint of this experience, three members were elected to
City Council). As a Senior Planner for the Town of Castle Rock, CO, I completed the
Southwest Quadrant Plan to widespread praise, was a team member on the Traffic
Calming Master Plan team (for which I earned a ‘Town Manager’s Choice’ award), was a
key team member on the Water Conservation Regulations update team, initiated the
Interchange District form-based code project, was the Project Manager for Crystal Valley
Ranch, and performed plan review for various projects in town. I have also performed
extensive research and analysis throughout my career – see my website for additional
samples of my work: http://danstaley.net.

My knowledge and experience are well suited for the goals of the Town of Westminster. I
am very interested in the position and will follow up during the week of June 16th to
arrange a convenient time to discuss our mutual goals.

Respectfully yours,

Dan Staley
