One of new city planning Gail Goldberg's first acts is to create a long needed position - and to then fill it with the right person! From LAOBSERVED:
Ken Bernstein, director of preservation issues for the Los Angeles Conservancy, moves to the city planning department as its first director of historic resources. (Press release)
This is great news for the city, but it also leaves two major pairs of shoes to fill at the Conservancy; Trudi Sandmeier's promotion to county wide educational director already Broadway Program slot open - and now the Conservancy also needs to find a new director of historic preservation issues.
