Moreno To Step Down As Community Development Director

Sponsored by:

San Andreas, CA — The Calaveras County Board of Supervisors has accepted the resignation of Stephanie Moreno as its Director of Community Development effective August 1, 2008.

The vote by the supervisors was 4-1 with Tom Tryon the lone dissenter.

Among other comments Board Chair Steve Wilensky stated that, “Ms. Moreno came to the County during a period of considerable upheaval and organizational change in the county´s land use functions. Her service in the face of multiple challenges was marked by the highest levels of energy, diligence and ingenuity.”

A contrasting statement was issued by Castle & Cooke Vice President & Division Manager Dave Haley who commented, “We´re pleased with the decision and we support the change. The last two years have been very difficult in dealing with anything in the planning and building department, in getting anything done whether it´s winding up projects to get people occupied or going through the initial planning process. Whether it´s a community plan, general plan or individual projects we´ve been completely stalled on all fronts.”
