Schwarzenegger Appoints NAHB Director to Lead California Housing Department

Lucy Dunn, an NAHB director and executive vice president for Hearthside Homes, was recently appointed by California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger as the director of the state’s Department of Housing and Community Development.

“Lucy’s experience in the housing industry, and her history of support for solutions that benefit the broader community, make her an ideal choice to direct our efforts to address California’s pressing development needs,” said Schwarzenegger.

“I am grateful that Governor Schwarzenegger has given me this opportunity to serve the people of California in this capacity,” said Dunn. “The state faces many challenges as we seek to mitigate housing shortages while balancing the need for intelligent planning and environmental stewardship, and I look forward to getting started.”

Dunn was the executive manager of the Bolsa Chica residential development and wetlands restoration project, which involved the sale of 800 acres of wetlands for restoration and negotiations with a number of local, state and federal agencies.

Dunn served as president of the Building Industry Association of Southern California (BIA/SC) in 2001 and is currently vice president of the California Building Industry Association. She has served on numerous NAHB committees, is a member of the Urban Land Institute; and was a founding member of the Foundation for Economic and Environmental Progress and of the Bolsa Chica Conservancy, which teaches balance in meeting housing needs and protecting the natural environment.

“No one is more passionate about housing issues than Lucy Dunn,” said Richard Lambros, executive vice president of BIA/SC. “The governor could not have found a better leader to help his administration address California’s severe housing crisis.”
