Lewisville City Manager Donna Barron announces the hiring of Wayne Snell as the city’s new Director of Neighborhood and Inspection Services.

“The City of Lewisville is very dynamic and has all the qualities a person could ask for,” Snell said. “I believe what attracted me most is the organizational culture and clear vision and goals they have for 2025.”

Snell has more than a decade of public sector experience and comes to Lewisville from the City of Plano, where he most recently served as Building Inspections Manager. Prior to working for Plano, Snell was Building Official for the Town of Prosper. He is an energetic leader with a passion for building first-rate communities through planning, civic partnerships, and engagement.

“For me, working in the public sector is an area where real change can happen, leadership matters, and is the most rewarding way I can contribute to society while taking care of my family,” Snell said.

He earned a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from the University of Texas at Arlington and a Bachelor’s of Applied Arts and Sciences from the University of North Texas. He is certified in Public Budgeting and Financial Management, Volunteer and Community Resource Management, is a Certified Public Manager, as well as a Certified Building Official.

Snell has been a member of the International Code Council since 2005; currently serves as treasurer for the North Texas Chapter of ICC; and serves on the North Central Texas Council of Governments’ Energy and Green Advisory Board. In 2013, he received a Research and Development award for effectively implementing digital processes within the Development Services Department. In 2016, Snell was part of the Building Inspections re-accreditation – only three Texas cities have an Accredited Building Inspections Department.

In his spare time, Snell likes to spend time with his wife, Carolyn, and their three daughters, enjoying the outdoors, eating out, and touring Texas. He begins his new job with the City of Lewisville later this month.
