Green Bay zoning administrator retires after three decades of service – The Press
GREEN BAY – At the beginning of this month, (UWGB alumnus) Paul Neumeyer ’92 (Regional Analysis and Environmental Policy and Planning) senior zoning administrator for the City of Green Bay, celebrated 30 years of service. One day later, he called it a career. Neumeyer has served the Green Bay community since 1992, working in the planning office at the City of Green Bay government in the Community and Economic Development branch. Neumeyer retired as senior zoning administrator, a role he has held for the past 12 years.But he started his career with Green Bay as a physical planner, a low-level planning position. However, Neumeyer said the two jobs weren’t all that different, but as a physical planner, he handled more secondary projects, like sign permits and subdivisions. As zoning administrator, a 40-hour-per-week job that typically started at 7:30 a.m., Neumeyer said he enforced the city’s zoning ordinances, handled zoning changes, like conditional use and change-of-use permits, wrote staff reports for the Planning Commission and Board of Appeals and fielded calls from citizens about zoning and development. He said the reports varied depending on who they were for.
