Topsham Assistant Town Planner Carol Eyerman has been named the Maine Association of Planners’ Professional Planner of the Year. Professional planners are selected for the annual award based on sustained contribution to the field of planning through distinguished practice, teaching, and/or writing. 

As a professional planner, Carol has devoted much of her career to the towns of Harpswell and Topsham, each as their Assistant Town Planner as well as two towns in Pennsylvania,” states a news release from the association. “Nominators commented on her passion to oversee development serving as staff to multiple committees and assisting with historic preservation. Carol provided planning and implementation expertise for several transportation, housing, and environmental projects in Harpswell, including Mitchell Field. She assisted Topsham through the closure of the Brunswick Naval Air Station and later in obtaining grant funding for the famous Topsham Fairgrounds.

Eyerman is the outgoing president of the Maine Association of Planners, where she has overseen restructuring of the organization, working across state lines with Vermont and New Hampshire to form a closer affiliation with the Northern New England Chapter of the American Planning Association.
