The new head of the Unalaska Planning Department is Anthony Grande.
Grande was named planning director this week. He fills the position after the former planning director, Erin Reinders, was named assistant city manager earlier this month.
Grande came to Unalaska in 2013 to take a job as planning administrator.
Born and raised in Wisconsin, Grande started his university days studying geography and math. But after deciding to go into planning, he earned a master's in urban planning and policy at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
