Chotkevys on Preservation

whittier-train-station

1892 Whittier Train Depot

Doug Chotkevys, Dana Point City Manager, will relate his “secret passion” for historic preservation and describe his related experiences. Before coming to our City 10 years ago, Doug served as the Assistant and then Acting City Manager, of Whittier. It was there that he identified over $5 million dollars of Federal, State and County Park grant money to pay for the grassroots effort to restore the Pio Pico Adobe and State Historic Park grounds to their 1880s condition, and then managed the restoration effort! He also worked with Jim Wilson of 30th Street Architects on the restoration project of the circa 1892 Whittier Train Depot.
