City Airport Director to Retire

City Airport Director Karen Ramsdell announced this week she’s retiring from her position on 12/30 after 37 years of public service, 26 of which were as airport director. During her tenure, Ramsdell oversaw the major Airline Terminal Improvement Project, a $55 million effort that included the construction of the new Jack Rickard terminal and the relocation and renovation of the historic 1942 terminal. She also managed efforts to restore large portions of wetlands in and around the Goleta Slough. City officials said a search is currently underway to find Ramsdell’s replacement.
