A city official at the head of the Rockaways boardwalk rebuilding project is stepping down and moving into the private sector.

Greg Clancy, a senior vice president of capital programs with the Economic Development Corporation, began working on the boardwalk project last year and will depart April 16 to join RXR Realty as vice president of development, he told DNAinfo. His departure follows that of former EDC president Seth Pinsky, who RXR hired last year.

The multimillion-dollar rebuild of the Rockaways’ boardwalk, which was damaged during Hurricane Sandy, is overseen by the Parks Department and managed by the EDC. Clancy was responsible for coordinating design, engineering and architectural elements of the work. The part of the project officially kicked off last year. The actual reconstruction, delayed several times, is scheduled to start at the end of April.

“I was glad to be a part of it, and even though I won’t be in charge to see the boardwalk through, I am proud of the small role I played in getting it teed up and ready for construction,” Clancy told DNAinfo. “I remain optimistic that the project will be a huge success once it’s done.” [DNAinfo]Julie Strickland
