Steve Preston retires this month after a distinguished, 38-year career in city management and planning.  Currently San Gabriel’s city manager, Steve has spent his career as a tireless advocate for good planning.  Formerly serving on APA’s Board of Directors, Steve is a past president of both APA California and the California Planning Roundtable.  A Fellow of the American Institute of Certified Planners and past member of the Planning Accreditation Board, Steve has also taught at USC and Cal Poly Pomona, dedicating his knowledge and experience to future generations of planners.

We have asked Steve to share a few observations from his years in practice, giving thought to these questions:

  • How you overcame any challenges;
  • What lessons about service ‘from the trenches’ you would have for those of us still working or entering the field;
  • What you found to be the best practices in municipal government that have influenced your life in a positive way;
  • How to ensure sustainability, including equity and inclusiveness, in a perfect world, or
  • Whatever you would like to say to a crowd of folks who still want to believe in positive change despite these dark days of American politics. 

 

No small mission!  Join us for an inspiring evening as Steve reflects on a career devoted to planning leadership and excellence in public service.

Steven A. Preston, FAICP

City Manager, San Gabriel, California

Housing and policy direction for a city as large and diverse as Los Angeles requires focused executive and political leadership. An overarching vision must respond to varied expectations and implementation challenges.

How does Mayor Eric Garcetti view the city’s future and how does the mayor intend to use his office to fulfill a vision that improves basic city services and promotes commerce, development, employment opportunity, and meeting varied housing demands, concurrent with measures to advance stable communities across the city?

How will the proposed streamlining of Planning, Building and Safety and the City’s other development services balance efficiency with the public’s desire for more livable and sustainable neighborhoods?

 

Our guest speaker:

Kevin Keller
Director of Planning and Housing Policy,
Office of the Mayor, City of Los Angeles
