On January 12, 2016 PSPF delivered a letter to the Palm Springs city manager forwarding the foundation's letter of June 27, 2008. In part, the letter reads, "As you may recall, several years ago we recommended the creation of a new Planning Department position for a city 'Preservation Officer.' In recent years the need for such a position has been well-validated." Later that day, PSPF board member Ron Marshall briefed the city's Historic Site Preservation Board on the recommendation. The HSPB appeared enthusiastic about the idea and asked that it be placed on their February 2016 meeting agenda. To read the PSPF letter click here.
On June 27, 2008, PSPF President William Kopelk recommended to Mr. David Ready, Palm Springs City Manager, that the City of Palm Springs consider creating a full-time Preservation Officer position on the city staff.
