Eddie Abrams was recently appointed to a vacancy on Longboat Key’s Planning and Zoning Board. The Town Commission voted to appoint him at the April 3 regular meeting.

The vacancy followed Gary Coffin’s move to the Town Commission.

Abrams currently serves as the town’s representative on the Metropolitan Planning Organization Citizens Advisory Council.

According to his application to the board, he worked in consulting engineering for 47 years and was a partner of a 100-person engineering firm, PACE Collaborative. He touted his extensive relevant experience in planning and development, having worked alongside government agencies of varying sizes.

“I have experience in projects for roads, buildings, schools, hospitals, power distribution and indoor and outdoor lighting,” he wrote in his application. “Building and zoning code specifications were an integral part of every project I accomplished. Since becoming a resident here in Longboat Key, I have been involved with several building and development issues related to the area and I feel I can help the process with my knowledge and experience.”

Abrams attended Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia, and has a number of certifications related to electrical engineering.
