NEW HAVEN – The city has announced that Transportation Department head Michael Piscitelli will be leaving his post to take over as deputy economic development administrator.
He takes over the position vacated earlier this year by Christine Bonanno.
“Michael Piscitelli brings a depth of experience in transportation, city planning and economic development to his new position as deputy EDA and this promotion is well deserved,” Economic Development Administrator Kelly Murphy said in a statement.
Before taking over the city’s Transportation Department, Piscitelli worked in the City Plan Department for six years. He also has worked for Metro-North Railroad and the city of Springfield, Mass.
In his new role, Piscitelli will assume responsibilities across multiple departments: City Plan; Livable City Initiative; Building Department; Cultural Affairs; Economic Development, Transportation, Traffic and Parking; and the Commission on Equal Opportunities.
Jim Travers will move from deputy director at the city’s Department of Transportation, Traffic and Parking to its acting director. Travers has two years in the Transportation Department. The search for a permanent director of transportation will begin soon.
