The San Luis Obispo County Parks Commission wants to gratefully acknowledge the Board of Supervisors and Dan Buckshi, county administrator, for their support and leadership implementing the long-awaited independent Parks Department.
And, we also applaud their visionary decision to appoint Nick Franco as its new director. Mr. Franco is an innovative leader with a proven track record of creative problem solving, and he will lead the new department with inspiration and passion. San Luis Obispo County Parks offers unquestionable value by providing a rich variety of recreational opportunities for people of all ages and abilities. With the new department, and Nick Franco as director, this will be one of the best investments the county has ever made.
