Changing of the guard is ahead at CCDC

Three new commissioners will be seated on the Capital City Development Corp. Board of Commissioners in June as Commissioners Lauren McLean and David Eberle step down.

McLean’s five-year term expired May 9 and Eberle is stepping down after serving an extra year on his term at the request of Mayor David Bieter.

These seats and one seat vacant since 2013 will be filled by Scot Ludwig, Ben Quintana and Maryanne Jordan, all Boise City Council members. McLean is a member of the City Council, and Eberle was at the time he was appointed to the commission. Jordan is also a state senator.

The Commission has functioned with eight commissioners since 2013. State statues allows anywhere from three to nine commissioners, CCDC Executive Director John Brunelle said.

Bieter, who is also a CCDC commissioner,  appoints commissioners to the CCDC board. The Boise City Council is expected to affirm the mayor’s nominations sometime in May, said Mike Journee, the mayor’s spokesman.

CCDC is Boise’s urban renewal agency.
