He will succeed the retiring Dick Bobertz on Oct. 1 as the head of the San Dieguito River Park Joint Powers Authority.

“Mr. Ochenduszko brings tremendous experience to the position,” said county Supervisor Dave Roberts, the chairman of the park’s Board of Directors. “I look forward to working with him as we continue to improve this great, regional asset.”

The authority is responsible for creating a trail system running from Volcan Mountain, near Julian, to the beach at Del Mar.

About 45 miles of the planned 70 miles of the primary trail have been completed, according to the authority. An additional 20 miles of trails, which shoot off the main pathway, have also been established.

Ochenduszko was previously the city manager for Campbell, Coronado and Cypress, and was an interim city manager for Del Mar.
