Cramer appointed to be next Idaho Falls planning and building director

Brad Cramer
The Idaho Falls City Council has appointed Brad Cramer the city's planning and building director. The appointment will become effective Nov. 1, when Renee Magee retires.

Cramer has been with the city since 2006. A graduate of Hillcrest High School, he holds a bachelor's degree from Idaho State University in international studies and a master's from ISU in public administration.

Coming into the job, he said his top priorities will be updating some of the divisions codes and ordinances and making them more user friendly for the public, looking at ways to revitalize older neighborhoods and the central business district, and finding ways to continue to make Idaho Falls a premier place to live and do business. As the new Mayor and Council members come into office he will be working to understand their priorities and goals for the city, he said.

He and his wife, Michelle, have four children, two boys and two girls, ages 8, 6, 3 and 9 month.
