David recently retired after serving as the Palm Springs City Manager for more than 20 years where he oversaw the revitalization of downtown Palm Springs. He played a crucial role in attracting new hotels, businesses, expanding the convention center and air service at the city-owned Palm Springs International Airport. During David’s tenure as City Manager, downtown Palm Springs was transformed into a tourism hub that will be an economic driver for years to come. With his years of experience with the property and his familiarity with city process requirements, David’s work on the Plaza Theater Restoration Committee is a continuation of his commitment to “the re-birth of Palm Springs as the destination that it always should be and could be and will be.” David will be assisting in efforts to raise capital funds ensuring project completion.
