In a series of tweets ‏@OPinDC writes:

“Director Harriet Tregoning to resign effective Feb. 23 to join the Obama Administration & U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Director Tregoning: “Thank you @MayorVinceGray for the tremendous honor and privilege of being the Director of the DC Office of Planning.”

Director Tregoning: “I could not be prouder of the progress the city has made.” @HTinWDC

Director Tregoning: “I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to serve the citizens of DC. This has been the best job ever.” @HTinWDC”

DCist recapped her experience before coming to the Office of Planning:

“Tregoning was appointed by then Mayor Adrian Fenty in 2007 and retained by Mayor Vincent Gray, who has defended her in the face of criticism to the Height Act changes her office proposed. She was previously the director of the Governors’ Institute on Community Design and co-founded the Smart Growth Leadership Institute.”

Looking forward to hearing who Mayor Gray nominates for a replacement.
