Kennedy and his wife, Helen, the former curator at the Williams House Museum, are moving to McMinnville, Ore., to be closer to their children.
Kennedy was first appointed to the council in February 1997 and served until December 2002.
He lost an election, then regained the seat in the 2004 election and served until the current time. He was mayor in 2006.
