Arroyo Parks department will be led by 27-year city veteran

A new Director of Parks, Recreation and Facilities was recently appointed in Arroyo Grande.

Doug Perrin, who joined the city in 1979, will oversee the management of city parks, landscaped areas, and urban forestry, recreation, sports and child care programs and maintain city facilities.

Perrin previously served as the department’s recreation supervisor. He took the director position in February on an interim basis after the position was vacated when former director Dan Hernandez left for a similar job in Santa Barbara.
