Loudoun County planner tapped for Shenandoah County job

The Shenandoah Valley-Herald

WOODSTOCK — A Loudoun County administrator has been chosen to head Shenandoah County’s community development office.

Assistant County Administrator Evan Vass announced Bradley Polk’s selection as Director of Community Development earlier this month. Polk, 35, is a staff planner and proffer auditor for Loudoun County.

Vass said Polk has also served as the town administrator of Round Hill in Loudoun County and as a police officer in Winchester.

Polk is replacing former community development director Brandon Davis, who became the executive director of the Northern Shenandoah Valley Regional Commission in Front Royal in February.

Davis had worked for the county since 2008.

In his new position, Polk will oversee the county’s zoning, planning, code enforcement, economic development and building inspection departments. He will take office on April 25 and collect an annual salary of $67,742.

Polk and his family live in Strasburg. He grew up in Shenandoah County and graduated from Strasburg High School, which Vass said contributed to the county’s decision to hire him.

“He had the right combination of education, experience and familiarity with the community,” Vass said.

Polk earned a Bachelor of Science degree in public administration from James Madison University in 2002. He also received a Master of Science degree in organizational leadership from Shenandoah University in Winchester in 2011.
