Over the course of her career more responsibilities were assigned, and eventually she was promoted to the Community and Economic Development Manager, and then assumed the responsibilities of Development Services Director, and ultimately was promoted to the Assistant City Manager position in 2018. Throughout her tenure in Shasta Lake, Mrs. Lugo has led the City’s community and economic development efforts, affordable housing projects, conducted complex policy and program analysis and presented recommendations to the City Council on a wide range of issues. Given her experience and knowledge of the City and positive work performance, the City Council has acknowledged Mrs. Lugo will be a good fit for the City of Shasta Lake and will work well with the community, City staff, and the City Council.
Added City Manager, Jessaca Lugo:
“It is an honor to be the next City Manager for the City of Shasta Lake. I have had the privilege of working with an incredible staff, experienced City Council, and amazing community members. Shasta Lake is a special community. When we think of great places to live and work, Shasta Lake has it all! Generous people, affordable real estate, beautiful parks, walkable community, and not to mention location, location, location – we are the gateway to the beautiful Lake Shasta and all the recreation opportunities offered. I am looking forward continuing the efforts to encourage development along the Shasta Dam Blvd corridor and other commercial areas, create more housing opportunities, improve our parks and open spaces, aggressively apply for funding to improve our aging infrastructure, increase our water supply capacity, and do our part to keep public safety a priority. I will focus on engaging with our citizens on issues that should be prioritized and solicit feedback on policies that are working well.”
