Port Moody city manager Gaetan Royer announced Wednesday he is leaving to take a new job at Metro Vancouver.

Royer, who served as city manager since 2004 and as Port Moody’s director of community services prior to that, will begin his new role Aug. 29 as Metro Vancouver’s department manager for metropolitan planning, environment and parks.

The department, new at Metro, geared towards bringing regional  development, regulation enforcement and air quality management under one authority.

In a press release Wednesday, PoMo Mayor Joe Trasolini called Royer’s departure a “great loss” for the city and he credited Royer’s leadership in guiding the city through what he called “unprecedented growth and changes.”
