Meet Shane. Shane is the City's GIS Coordinator for the Community Development Department. Shane began working for the City in October 2020. 

Q: Tell us a little about what you do each day. 

A: I manage the day to day “mapping” needs.  I design the City Council and Planning Commission maps for developmental projects.  Once projects are approved, I input the parcel boundaries, building footprints, street centerlines, and assign addresses for each property.

Q: What is the best part of your job?

A: My team.  The planners provide such a positive and fun atmosphere, and my supervisor trusts    me enough where I never feel like I’m being micromanaged.  We collaborate extremely well together, and they make the workdays truly enjoyable. 

Q: Tell us about a time you felt proud to serve the residents Blue Springs?

A: Participating in household hazardous waste.  Staff volunteer to assist residents with removal of unsafe materials.  It gives us a chance to not only serve the residents but to also interact with our community face to face. 

Q: Tell us one interesting fact about yourself. 

A: I sailed to an uninhabited island in the Gulf of Mexico and spent ten days camping.
