After the August retirement of longtime Community Development Director Tom Guice, the City of Prescott has named a new director.

The city announced in a news release last week that Bryn Stotler has been named Community Development Director.

Stotler previously worked for the Central Yavapai Metropolitan Planning Organization (CYMPO), where she was a Transportation Planner, the news release stated.

She has also served on the city’s Board of Adjustment and Appeals, and previously sat on its Unified Development Code Committee. Earlier in her career, Stotler worked for The M3 Companies LLC, the company that created the Prescott Lakes master plan and American Ranch in Williamson Valley, among others, according to the news release.

A 22-year Prescott resident, Stotler graduated from the University of Arizona in 2014.

“We are excited to welcome Bryn to the City of Prescott,” said Prescott City Manager Michael Lamar. “Her connection to the community, her experience as a planner, and her past work on several important Prescott developments will serve her well in this new role.”

In her new role of Community Development Director, Stotler will oversee a department of 18, covering areas such as planning and zoning, building plan review and inspections, and historic preservation.

Stotler replaces Guice, who worked for the city since 1988 — first as a planner, and later as economic development director. He was promoted to Community Development Director in 1996.

The city conducted a national search before appointing Stotler to the role of Community Development Director. She was hired at an annual salary of $100,000.

Starting Aug. 20, Stotler can be reached at 928-777-1317 or by email at
