Letter

Last night at a special MCC meeting is was announced that Lisa Grote resigned from her position as San Mateo County Community Planning Director.

I emailed Rich Gordon’s office this morning with the following questions:

What date did the planning director resign and who is the acting director? 

What is the process for hiring a new director and how long will the process take?

This information will be updated later today:

Updated, with information from Supervisor Rich Gordon’s office:

"The Community Development Director, Lisa Grote, has accepted an opportunity with the City of San Mateo. She will conclude her work with our County on Friday, January 22nd. The County Manager expects to announce next week what plans will be for the near-term and the process for recruiting her replacement."


Always liked Lisa for the most part. Shame to see her go after 4 years. Curious if she’ll be replacing Ron Miguel ;-P

Having failed in her effort to push through the realtor/developer’s version of the Midcoast LCP update at the Coastal Commission last month, Ms. Grote is now moving on to a jurisdiction where local planning decisions by pro-development officials are not subject to review by higher authority. She will not be missed.
