Adam Moos, who has run West Hollywood's controversial Rent Stabilization Department since its creation last year, said this week that he plans to resign from his post, probably by July.
Moos, 25, organized the department after the City Council passed its rent control law last June, and worked with the council in creating the city's Rent Stabilization Commission and devising its hearing process. The council appointed Moos full-time director of the department last December.
Moos, who has a graduate degree in urban planning from McMaster University in Ontario, Canada, said he was resigning to pursue a career in urban policy.
"I'd like to get out of the administration side of municipal government and find something involved with policy development," he said. "I'm not that interested in day-to-day management."
