Kailtin Myers was elected on Nov. 21, 2023, to a four-year term on the Moab City Council. Her term runs from January 2024 to December 2028. Her platform while running for City Council was focused on providing attainable housing for every resident, creating balance as we continue to grow, and representing the needs and voices of every resident.
Kaitlin was born in Los Alamos, New Mexico, but predominantly grew up in the southeast; she moved to Moab from Tampa, Florida, in 2016 to serve as an AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer for Grand County, where she worked for three years on affordable housing, community development, and economic development initiatives. She then worked as the Senior Projects Manager for Moab City from 2019-2022, overseeing the Walnut Lane redevelopment project.
Kaitlin is now the Executive Director of the Moab Area Community Land Trust (MACLT). She is the first paid staff person for MACLT and manages the development of the Arroyo Crossing subdivision. Her passion for the organization stemmed from four years of volunteer service on the MACLT board from 2017-2021.
Kaitlin is a lifelong public servant; in addition to her work in the public sphere, she has consistently served on local boards and committees, including the Moab Area Housing Task Force, the Local Homeless Council, and the WabiSabi Thrift Store. She also serves on the board of the Utah Housing Coalition, a statewide nonprofit focused on housing advocacy and education, and was recently appointed to serve on the Olene Walker Housing Loan Fund Board. Kaitlin holds a Bachelor of Design in Architecture from the University of Florida and a Certificate in Economic Development from Utah Valley University.
In her free time, Kaitlin enjoys rafting rivers, hiking canyons, and skiing slopes across the beautiful Colorado Plateau.
