The City of Newberg has hired Doug Rux to be its first-ever director of community development. The new position comes as the city combines its building, planning and economic development

departments into one.


As director, Rux will oversee land use activities within the city with current and long-term planning activities, the building division and review of building permits, remodels and tentative improvements, and economic development, while working with the city manager, mayor and City Council to

implement policies. 


Rux moves into the position with eight years of experience as community development director in Tualatin, service as assistant planner in Springfield as well as his most recent position, assistant director of urban development in Salem, overseeing a department staff of 74.
