About Chris D’Aveta


City Planner, Homeowner, Father and Husband
My wife and I are raising our two school-age sons here, and I’m a supporter of the Medford Little League, Medford Youth Soccer, and St. Ray’s basketball league.

Work Experience
City planner, AICP certified; Community Development Director; Asst. Director of Planning; credentialed as Massachusetts Certified Public Purchasing Official; Project Manager for local cities, overseeing a range of diverse projects including:

  • veterans and affordable housing
  • zoning review
  • transportation improvements
  • arts-driven economic development

I have been a Big Brother and a Kiwanian. I am actively involved in the Medford Community Coalition and Medford Educational Foundation. As part of the parent group that chose Medford High’s headmaster, an elected member of the Brooks School Council and an active PTO member, education is a very high priority for me.

My Promise to the Community
My city planning experience has convinced me of the necessity of transparency from the government side to the public, the power of good government, and the obligation of our officials to allow for an open and honest public process. As city councillor, I will be an advocate and supporter of Medford, recognizing our great position and the good people that call the city home. My family is committed to Medford and all it has to offer; I am committed to making it a better place for all residents.
