About Kaye: Kaye Krishna leads the City of Vancouver’s Department of Development, Buildings and Licensing (DBL), which enables the development of vibrant communities, ensures the quality and safety of buildings, and strategically leverages the use of permits, licences, and enforcement to advance Council priorities. She is leading the City’s efforts to transform development and licensing and is steering key policy issues, including housing enforcement, short-term rentals, taxis, liquor, and marijuana dispensaries.
Kaye is a former Chief of Staff and Deputy Commissioner for New York City’s Department of Housing, where she led priority efforts, including the creation of the City’s 10-year housing strategy, a micro-unit pilot, greening the affordable housing pipeline, and coordinating Hurricane Sandy recovery. Prior to joining the City, she was with HR&A Advisors, a US-based economic development, real estate, and planning firm, where she worked with cities and states across the country to develop integrated strategies to build physical, economic, and social resilience.
