Director of Community Development Retires

After twenty-five years of service to the City of Escondido, Barbara Redlitz, Director of Community Development has retired.   Barbara has been a key member of the City’s  management team for decades and Escondido has benefited from her many talents and strong leadership.  We wish her a long and happy retirement. She will be missed! 

The City is fortunate to have the in-house talent that allows us to promote from within so a smooth transition is anticipated. City Manager Clay Phillips has promoted Assistant Planning Director Jay Petrek to the position of Director of Community Development.  Bill Martin, Deputy Planning Director will succeed Mr. Petrek as the Assistant Planning Director.
