O’Fallon looks inside to fill community development role

The city of O’Fallon has named Justin Randall as the new director of Community Development.

In his role as director, Randall will coordinate planning and zoning, building and inspections, and code enforcement for the city. Justin replaces Ted Shekell, who retired on Nov. 20 after 23 years of service.

“Justin has worked as assistant director of Community Development for a number of years and he will be a tremendous leader of the department following Ted’s retirement,” said Mayor Herb Roach. “Many in the community already know Justin to be a very capable planner and an important member of the O’Fallon team.”

Randall is AICP certified through the American Institute of Certified Planners. He has been with the city of O’Fallon since 2013. Previously, he worked as a planner for Jefferson County, Mo., for seven years.

Randall holds a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Indiana State University and a Bachelor’s of Urban Planning and Development from Ball State University.

“I am humbled by the opportunity to serve the citizens of O’Fallon and city staff as the director of Community Development.  It is an exciting time to be in O’Fallon, with our continued growth, reinvestment in the Downtown District and so many great things going on. I look forward to working with the community,” said Randall.
