David McKinley, long-time CIL Vice President of Real Estate Development, is retiring from CIL, but looking to keep “at least one foot” in community development and advocacy work.
David, who joined the CIL team in 1986, has been instrumental in the development of supportive housing, affordable rental housing, home ownership opportunities, market-rate housing, and program and office space development for nonprofit organizations.
Chris Canna, Director of Real Estate Development, will be moving into the role of Vice-President of Real Estate Development effective July 1, 2019. David will remain on the CIL team in a part-time capacity through the Fall. David will also retain his title as Benefit Corporation Officer for CIL Development, Inc.
As a long-time Hartford resident, David has a deeply vested interest in revitalizing blighted Hartford properties. He currently serves as the Board President for the Hartford Community Loan Fund, is a Commissioner on the Hartford Planning and Zoning Commission, is a member of the State Codes and Standards Committee, and is the Founder and Secretary/Treasurer of Mayor Mike Peters Little League.
David has played a role in housing production and advocacy for over thirty-five years. While working at the Neighborhood Housing Coalition, he developed programs and policies that addressed problems of housing production, preservation and affordability.
CIL thanks David for his contributions to the team, he will be missed!
