Clarence “Jeep” Jones, the longtime chairman of the board of the Boston Redevelopment Authority, said Thursday that he would not seek reappointmnet after 32 years on the panel.
Jones joined the board in 1981 and has served as chairman since 1989 — longer than mayor Thomas M. Menino has been in office. His tenure was marked by a period of rapid growth in Boston, with a spurt of residential and commercial development downtown, as well as in outlying neighborhoods.
Jones said his last board meeting will be Sept. 26. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
