Planning Commission Update
October 26, 2019
At the Oct. 14 Tehachapi Planning Commission meeting, Senior Planner Trevor Hawkes announced that this would be his last meeting. Hawkes said that since he and his wife wanted to be closer to her family in Northern California, he had accepted a position with Napa County. He admitted that his new job would involve dealing with wineries and mansions. Hawkes came to Tehachapi three and a half years ago after receiving his Masters degree in Urban and Environmental Planning from Arizona State University. In an interview following the meeting, Hawkes praised Development Services Director Jay Schlosser as "the best professional influence in my life." Then adding, "If I could take every person in this office with me, I would." He admits he will miss his office with a window. "I am now going to be one of seventeen. I know I will be back in a cube." The Planning Commission all wished Hawkes the best in his new venture.
The Tehachapi Planning Commission meets the second Monday of the month at 6 p.m. in the Wells Education Center, 300 S. Robinson St.
