NEW YORK — City Parks Commissioner Mitchell Silver is leaving the de Blasio administration.

Silver announced Tuesday morning that he will resign in late spring or early summer and join a civil engineering firm based in North Carolina.

Silver has lead the Parks Department since 2014 and oversaw more than 800 capital projects during his tenure.

In a statement, Silver thanked the mayor for giving him the chance to transform the city parks system.

He writes, "I am grateful to have worked with the amazing New York City Parks leadership team, as well as all the dedicated Parks staff who keep our parks safe, clean and accessible, especially through this global pandemic."
