David A. C. Bailey was the director of City of Pensacola's Community Redevelopment Agency, having served from 2003 until August of 2007.

Bailey is a registered architect whose education includes a bachelor's degree from the University of Florida, a Master of Architecture from Virginia Tech,[1] and a year of study at the Vicenza Institute of Architecture in Vicenza, Italy. He serves on the board of directors for the Belmont Arts & Cultural Center and was named one of the Pensacola Business Journal's "Forty Under 40" in (date needed).[2]

On June 17, 2007, Bailey tendered a letter of resignation to Pensacola City Manager Tom Bonfield, citing a desire to return to private architecture practice with his previous employer Spencer Maxwell Bullock. He remained in his position through August 3 "to ensure that current CRA projects continue without interruption."[3]

Bailey recently left his firm and became Town Manager of Seaside, Florida, the first of what have come to be called New Urbanist developments, aspiring to capture the charm of the old Southern communities along the Gulf of Mexico.
