City of High Point employees Trevor Spencer and Robby Stone have both accepted new roles with that city’s government.
This week, Stone moved into the deputy Public Services director position, while, next week, Spencer will become High Point’s Engineering Services director.
“Spencer and Stone” might sound like a new primetime cop drama that takes place on the rough streets of New York – however, rather than fight crime in the Big Apple, this duo will play key roles in the growth of subdivisions and other projects in High Point – and in the preservation of the environment while those take place.
High Point city staff has been very busy in recent years since the city has been attempting to transform itself from the furniture capital of the world into a city known for other industries as well.
The city has seen a great deal of growth over the past decade – much of which has been involved around enhancing the downtown area. Two years ago, High Point opened a new ballpark as the centerpiece of that downtown revitalization.
The City of High Point and area developers have a lot of other future plans as well, and Spencer and Stone will now play a key role.
According to a press release from the City of High Point announcing the promotions, as the city’s Engineering Services director, Spencer will oversee “planning, design and inspection of engineering projects in the City and provide engineering support and services to internal City departments.”
He’ll also, in his new position, review and approve of privately developed subdivisions and site work, as well as provide oversight and project management for High Point’s capital improvement projects.
As for Stone, who’s now the city’s deputy Public Services director – he’ll assist the director in “planning, organizing, directing and assisting with the supervision of the department while having primary oversight over stormwater, streets, cemetery, landfill, environmental services, material recycling and composting, as well as other public services projects and programs as assigned by the director.”
Stone will also, in some cases, be the point person overseeing High Point water and sewer projects.
