Former Mayor Sue Noack reads a proclamation declaring “Monday, December 19th as David Durant Day in Pleasant Hill

Former Mayor David Durant retired from the Pleasant Hill City Council on December 19. David served on the council for 17 years after serving as a Planning Commissioner and a Redevelopment Advisory Committee member. David was mayor of Pleasant Hill three times in 2002, 2007, and 2011. Former Mayor Sue Noack read a proclamation declaring “Monday, December 19, as David Durant Day in Pleasant Hill.”

David was highly respected by all fellow councilmembers and will be remembered for his meticulous attention to detail and expert analysis on complex issues that came before the city council during his tenure.

As a longtime board member of the Contra Costa Transportation Authority, David was instrumental in securing funding for many infrastructure projects in Pleasant Hill, including Buskirk Avenue improvements, Contra Costa Boulevard enhancements, the Golf Club Road Bridge Replacement Project, and the Geary Road Improvement Project. In total, during his time on the CCTA board, more than $30 million in grant funding was approved for Pleasant Hill projects.

In addition to all of his city responsibilities, David still found time to volunteer for multiple organizations, including his church, legal services agencies, and Habitat for Humanity. He currently serves on the board of directors of two non-profit organizations: Legal Assistance for Seniors and Youth ALIVE!, a youth violence prevention and leadership training organization.
