Travis Beavers NPZA Professional Award

The 2023 Nebraska Planning Conference included award presentations to some very deserving individuals! We’ll be telling their stories one at a time, first up is Travis Beavers, Building Inspector/Zoning Administrator for the City of Wahoo.

Travis has quickly learned the zoning side of his position for the City of Wahoo. He is committed to doing what is right, ensuring ALL citizens are required to follow the zoning laws the same way, with the same interpretation, in the same manner. This is no simple task in small towns.

Travis has learned zoning concepts and practices and works diligently to eliminate the influence of politics in the application of the rules.

Like many zoning administrators in Nebraska, he does his job well, with a genuine desire to treat every person the same, no matter their status, political position, connections, or financial resources. Recognizing Travis is recognizing that doing this job like it should be done is foundational to effective planning and zoning.

Congratulations Travis!
