Long-Time Leader Leaving Coastal Commission

New, 2 comments

Peter Douglas, the long-time executive director of the California Coastal Commission, has announced that he'll be taking immediate medical leave and officially retiring in November. The Commission dictates land use policies along California's 1,100 mile coast and is one of the most powerful regulatory agencies in the state (not to mention the bane of many a developer), thanks in large part to Douglas, who has led the CCC since 1985. Charles Lester, senior deputy director of the CCC, will serve as acting executive director until a permanent successor is chosen. [SF Chronicle]
