Edith Marvin – NCTCOG’s Director of Environment and Development
By state statute, the purpose of a council of governments is “to make studies and plans to guide the unified, far-reaching development of the region, eliminate duplication, and promote economy and efficiency in the coordinated development of the region.” The Environment & Development Department furthers this purpose by striving towards Sustainable Environmental Excellence — or SEE — for three strategic issues: Less Trash, Safe Clean & Green Regional Environment Corridors, and Development Excellence.
Edith Marvin, NCTCOG’s Director of Environment and Development, will outline the comprehensive effort to bring together public- and private-sector experts in the environmental, transportation, development, and information analysis fields to address the regional issues and infrastructure concerns of the future.
Edith Marvin serves as the Director of Environment and Development for the North Central Texas Council of Governments. Mrs. Marvin has over 20 years of experience in the field of engineering and development. While attending college, she gained knowledge through the engineering private sector in the fields of residential, commercial, utility, roadway, environmental, and stormwater design and construction. She graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio in 1995 with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. Her experience in private sector design and construction continued in San Antonio and expanded to include the field of state roadway design and related drainage improvements in the DFW area until she transitioned to the municipal sector in 2001. She has since held positions with the City of Carrollton and the Town of Flower Mound as Senior Engineer and Town Engineer. In those capacities she has been responsible for reviewing plans and coordinating with the development community and public utilities; capital infrastructure master planning; community policies and standards; and design and construction of roadway, storm drainage, utility, parks, and facilities capital projects. Mrs. Marvin has been a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers since 1991, Texas Floodplain Management Association since 2002, is a Licensed Professional Engineer in Texas, and is a Certified Floodplain Manager.
