Office of Planning (OP), effective Monday, February 24, 2014. A search is underway to replace Harriet Tregoning, who resigned as Director to join the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Tregoning’s last day is Friday, February 21, 2014.

“The Mayor and I thank Harriet for her commitment and forward-thinking approach to making the District of Columbia one of the most sustainable cities in the nation. We wish her much success in her new role,” said Deputy Mayor Hoskins. “Rosalynn has proven to be exemplary in serving as Harriet’s deputy director and will carry on the Mayor’s vision while our search for a new director continues.”

In 2004, she was promoted to Associate Director for Neighborhood Planning and in 2007 became Deputy Director for Citywide and Neighborhood Planning. Prior to joining OP, Hughey served in the Office of the County Executive in Prince George’s County, Maryland, coordinating the County’s community revitalization program for “inner-Beltway” neighborhoods; she also worked in the County’s Planning Department. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Urban Studies from the University of Maryland at College Park.”
