Farewell, Kristen Crane!
Assistant City Manager Kristen Crane is leaving Del Mar June 30 to begin her next chapter in public service as Assistant City Manager for the City of Murrieta.
Crane has worked for Del Mar for 8 ½ years. Working closely with the City Council, she was a driving force behind numerous programs and initiatives.
As project manager for construction of the Del Mar Civic Center, she delivered the award-wining facility on-time and on-budget and secured grant funding for a solar-powered battery storage system.
Other accomplishments include completing the Downtown Streetscape Project, developing the Climate Action Plan, laying the framework for the Utility Undergrounding Project and shepherding its first phase to construction, and overseeing master planning for Shores Park.
Her career has included service in five cities throughout California.
In Del Mar, her fondest memories are tied to people and groups that share a common goal of serving the community.
“I’ve greatly enjoyed my time with the City of Del Mar,” Crane said, “building relationships with residents and businesses, and working together with staff and the City Council to achieve the City’s goals.”
