Stuart Kuhn Appointed to Fill Vacancy on the Temecula-Anza-Elsinore-Murrieta Resource Conservation District

March 14, 2024

Riverside County, CA – On Tuesday, Supervisor Chuck Washington appointed Stuart Kuhn to serve on the Temecula-Anza-Elsinore-Murrieta Resource Conservation District (“TEAM RCD”), an independent special district with the mission of promoting natural resource conservation practices, opportunities for public education and participation, and a sustainable quality of life for communities within the District.

“I believe Stuart is a great addition to Team RCD,” said Supervisor Chuck Washington. “His extensive natural resource experience and familiarity with regional sustainability projects will be an asset to the special district’s efforts.”

Kuhn has over 20 years of experience supporting public works projects, specializing in stormwater quality, regulatory compliance, and flood control hydrology and hydraulics. He is currently a Stormwater Program Manager, and is working to implement the Alternative Compliance Program developed for the City of Temecula across all Riverside and San Diego County cities.

TEAM RCD’s district stretches through portions of Riverside County Districts 1 and 3, includes 505,000 acres, extending south from Scott Road to the San Diego County line and from east of Anza to the Orange County line. It also includes a portion around the north of Lake Elsinore. As a member or Team RCD, Kuhn will be responsible for collaborating with other agencies to allow projects to run smoothly through the permitting process in order to protect and preserve the district’s watersheds.

“The District has a vital role in protecting natural resources and ensuring restoration efforts are completed in compliance with established standard practices,” said Teri Biancardi, Team RCD Board President. “Southwest Riverside County is a biodiversity hotspot that is home to unique plant and animal communities, which depend on our stewardship and sound decision making.”

Washington nominated Kuhn for appointment by the Board of Supervisors to fill the unexpired term vacated by Jeff McClenahan on January 12, 2024. Per Public Resources Code, the Board of Supervisors had 60 days to make an appointment from the day the vacancy was created. Kuhn’s term will end on November 30, 2026.

As with all District appointments, Supervisor Washington is required to nominate an individual for consideration for appointment by the Board of Supervisors. Riverside County has numerous boards, committees and commissions comprised of appointed members of the public.
