Avondale hires new Sustainability Officer

Avondale announced the hire of its new Sustainability Officer. Danae Presler joined the city’s Development & Engineering Services Department in April.

Danae Presler comes to Avondale from the City of Chandler, Arizona where she worked in various positions, most recently serving as a Neighborhood Programs Administrator and leading that city’s sustainability efforts through interdepartmental collaborations and new partnerships with universities, businesses, and nonprofits. Danae’s career in sustainability and project management will help Avondale continue to be a community focused on sustainability.

Danae will be working with Avondale staff at all levels on City programs and initiatives for sustainability. She will help implement Low Impact Development (LID) and green stormwater infrastructure (gsi) guidelines as a part of new development and redevelopment; work with businesses to be more green through the Green Business Program; manage the City’s regulatory permitting and compliance for stormwater and air quality, and oversee the City’s Green Team. She represents Avondale as a member of Arizona State University’s Sustainable Cities Network Steering Committee, STORM (Stormwater Outreach for Regional Municipalities), and the Rio Reimagined and El Rio projects. 

Danae received her Master of Environmental Studies degree from The Evergreen State College in Washington and Bachelor of Science in Ecology from Minnesota State University-Mankato.
