Oakpointe Communities is pleased to announce the hiring of Makayla Bowdish as assistant project manager. The addition of this new team member will drive the company’s work in sustainable community development in the Puget Sound region

The hire of Bowdish comes as Oakpointe continues work on its Master Planned Communities in southern King County. Announced earlier this fall, construction recently began on the much needed transportation route known as the Covington Connector, which symbolized the first step toward construction on Oakpointe’s up-and-coming lifestyle center and community hub LakePointe. Oakpointe is also pushing ahead with work on Ten Trails, one of the Puget Sound’s most exciting hotspots to live, shop and play in Black Diamond, Washington. Ten Trails will eventually offer approximately 4,800 homes, a future retail village, several parks, trails and more.

“Makayla joins us equipped with a valuable background in land surveying, subdivision planning and transportation and traffic design,” said Brian Ross, Oakpointe’s CEO. “We’re excited to welcome Makayla to our team and are looking forward to her contribution to the myriad of developments we have in process.”

In her new role at Oakpointe, Bowdish will provide technical entitlement processing and administrative support through all phases of land development. She will be involved in preparing and managing project schedules and budgets, as well as interacting with technical consultants and jurisdictions involved in the project approval process.

Prior to joining Oakpointe, Bowdish worked as a civil engineer in training at LDC, Inc., and as an assistant engineer at J-U-B Engineers, Inc. She graduated from Gonzaga University with a bachelor’s degree focused on Civil Engineering.
