Cypress Community Services Director to move to Redondo Beach

At the regular meeting of the Cypress City Council, during City Manage remarks, Cypress City Manager Peter Grant announced that that meeting would be the last for Cameron Harding, the City’s Director of Recreation and Community Services.

Mr. Harding has accepted a similar position with the City of Redondo Beach, which is much closer to his home than Cypress. The previous Redondo Beach Recreation Director was John La Rock, who left for the same position at Torrance in November 2020 after serving over 13 years.

Jeff Draper, the second-in-charge of Cypress Recreation and Community Services, will be the interim director while a search is conducted for a replacement for Mr. Harding.
