Whereas, Eileen Kelley has served the City of Middleton as its City Planner & Zoning Administrator, faithfully, honorably, effectively and with an ever-ready smile and Good Neighbor attitude for the past 31 years (1988-present); and

Whereas, Through Eileen’s skill, knowledge, experience and diligence, Middleton’s planning for growth and conservation has benefited its residents immensely, helping to make Middleton one of America’s Top 10 Places to Live, according to CNN/Money Magazine from 2005-2013; and

Whereas, Eileen’s optimistic, can-do attitude is indispensable to the functioning of a high-performance city. Some of her most notable contributions are the work to create two Tax increment Districts that have been very successful; beneficial intergovernmental agreements with the Towns of Westport and Springfield; extensive changes to Middleton’s floodplain that enabled major quality of life improvements and increased tax base; a comprehensive plan produced in-house; the development of Middleton Hills and Greenway Station and much more; and
