FULTON, N.Y. — Caroline Shue was recently hired as the assistant director of the Fulton Community Development Agency (CDA).
“Caroline, a lifelong Fulton resident, brings a rich background of experience in project management and real estate, and she has been a key leader as chairperson of the Fulton Special Events Committee,” Fulton Mayor Deana Michaels said in a release, announcing Shue’s appointment. “Her involvement in our community, coupled with her organizational and management skills make her a great addition to our CDA.”
A major part of Shue’s role as assistant director for the CDA will be assisting with the economic development of the city. Specifically, this involves oversight of the Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) projects and other economic development/housing grants. Shue actively participates in, or coordinates business events, and works to market the city as a place to locate a business, visit, or promote existing businesses, and/or to market CDA programs. She will also act as the small-business liaison between the business community and the City of Fulton, per the release.
Shue most recently worked as a project coordinator at VIP Structures, providing preconstruction and estimating services with daily support in the areas of subcontract administration, prequalification, and construction documentations. She would often work alongside the business-development team to ensure client satisfaction in project expectations, the release stated. Projects in Shue’s portfolio included Salt City Market, True North Daycare, J.W. Didado Electric, Kris-Tech Wire expansion, and most recently the Food Bank of CNY expansion. She is also a licensed real-estate salesperson.
In her role with the Special Events Committee — a local nonprofit with the vision to reestablish a vibrant community where all are welcome to visit, live, and enjoy Fulton — Shue has helped bring Big Truck Day, the Fulton Fall Festival, Community Market, and Fulton Christmas Tree Lighting as annual events in Fulton.
