Menlo Park: new assistant community development director named


Chuck Andrews, a senior building inspector working with the city of Menlo Park, has been promoted to become the city's assistant community development director.

He is the city's building official and will be responsible for overseeing the processing for development permits, checking plans, doing inspections and ensuring compliance with the building code.

Andrews has previously worked as a building official supervising Cupertino's Apple, Inc. development project, Apple Park, and has a bachelor's degree in business from the University of Phoenix and several certifications from the International Code Council.

He started working with the city of Menlo Park on contract in April 2018 and then became permanent city staff in October 2018 prior to his recent promotion.

“Chuck has strong experience managing projects and our inspection operations, plus he is familiar with building codes and the Menlo Park community from his time as senior building inspector,” City Manager Starla Jerome-Robinson said.

“He has been a key part of the city’s success and is well prepared to keep the division moving forward in this essential position.”
