Estolano leaves CRA

Cecelia Estolano has resigned as CEO of the city's Community Redevelopment Agency after 3½ years. Mayor Villaraigosa's release says she will join an environmental firm, Green for All. Estolano had been a key player in the city's campaign to establish a Cleantech Manufacturing Center in Downtown, knocked asunder by the collapse of talks with rail-car maker AnsaldoBreda.
