On October 22, 2018, the City of Cranbrook welcomed Ron Fraser as its new director of the Office of Innovation and Collaboration. Fraser’s background in project management, sometimes on mega-projects, has equipped him to oversee a number of City departments, including Planning and Development, IT Services, Economic Development, Communications and Building Services. Fraser will also be deeply involved in producing a new, mandatory Housing Needs Report required by the provincial government, due by April 2022. Fraser and his wife Judy are enjoying Cranbrook and love the outdoors. They plan to tour the Kootenays this summer on their Harley-Davidson.
