Diane B. Roteman, 45, of Warrenton, will succeed Ken Alm as Center District’s representative on the Fauquier County Planning Commission.
Fauquier County’s planning commission this week will get a new Center District representative.
The county board of supervisors Thursday expects to appoint Diane B. Roteman of Warrenton to the five-member advisory panel.
Ms. Roteman — Center District Supervisor Chris Granger’s choice for the job — will succeed 10-year veteran Ken Alm.
A human resources manager with Fairfax County government, Ms. Roteman refused to comment on her impending appointment.
The planning commission, which makes recommendations to the supervisors on a wide range of land-use matters, meets the third Thursday of the month.
Mr. Alm, 66, will attend his last meeting as a panel member Thursday, July 19. Ms. Roteman will take over in August.
“I think she’ll have a good cross-section perspective on issues coming in front of the planning commission,” Mr. Granger said of Ms. Roteman, who earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from West Virginia University in 1995. “She’s somebody who lives in town, commutes out of town; her kids go to schools in the community.
“I think she’s a good representation of the demographic of Center District.”
He considered about six people for the post, the supervisor said.
He decided not reappoint Mr. Alm simply to “give somebody else the opportunity” to do the job.
“I’d say I’ve had a very good relationship with Ken,” Mr. Granger said.
The planning commission chairman, vice chairman and regular members receive annual stipends of $16,400, $16,300 and $14,000, respectively.
Ms. Roteman, 45, joined Warrenton’s planning commission in February. Before that, the Ohio native served on the town’s parks and recreation board from August 2016 until last January.
She has resigned from the town planning panel to join the county commission.
Ms. Roteman and her husband, Ryan, 46, moved to Warrenton after he accepted a job in Northern Virginia. The couple have three sons, ages 11 to 16 years old.
