Two and a half decades after getting his planning-career start as a high school intern at the Yavapai County Planning Department, Vincent Gallegos has taken on the top spot at the region’s transportation-planning organization.

On March 8, Gallegos started his job as administrator of the Central Yavapai Metropolitan Planning Organization (CYMPO), the group that does long-term road planning for the quad-city area.

Gallegos, 44, was chosen by the CYMPO board on Jan. 28 to replace long-time administrator Chris Bridges, who left the position in December 2020 for a job as transportation planning manager for the Town of Gilbert.

Gallegos takes on the CYMPO job after serving for three and a half years as the director of the Lake Havasu Metropolitan Planning Organization. Before that, he had worked for several years as the transportation planner for CYMPO — a job that set the stage for his role in Lake Havasu.
