Lisa Grote, Planning Director turns in her resignation


By on Fri, January 8, 2010

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:

Sabrina Brennan

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."
