Steve has served Mar Vista ably, well, and fairly for a decade on our MVCC land use committee. He championed the reconstruction of the Venice Bl median; the opening of the new restaurants and businesses we all enjoy now in our town center; and he has worked diligently on land use issues large and small for US. When LAUSD wanted to put in a bus operation-- wiping out 3 fields at Webster--Steve helped us save that space.
Steve's tireless, intelligent, thoughtful work on land use and planning has helped Mar Vista retain its character whilst carving out new opportunities for positive development and beautification.
Unlike many, Steve doesn't seek limelight. He serves our stakeholders with humility and passion while engaged in a demanding job; and having family responsibility--truly a hero deserving of recognition by his community.
