December 15, 2022 – El Paso County is pleased to announce that Meggan Herington has been named the new Planning and Community Development Director.

Meggan succeeds Kevin Mastin, who was appointed El Paso County Interim Executive Director of Planning and Community Development while also maintaining his role as Executive Director of the Department of Public Works.

Meggan has dedicated the past twenty years to serving the Pikes Peak Region through her experience in urban and regional planning. She’s held roles in the public and private sectors, including Assistant Director of Planning for the City of Colorado Springs and Planning Director for the Town of Monument. She has received recognition for her leadership skills and was awarded the City of Colorado Springs Mayor’s Award for Customer Service Excellence twice. Her community planning and customer service background made her the perfect candidate to lead the El Paso County Planning and Community Development team.

Meggan Herington will begin on January 4, 2023. We look forward to her joining El Paso County’s mission to provide valued and necessary community services in the most cost-effective manner.
