Jim Ryugo retired at the end of June as Building Services Manager after 33 years of service in the city’ Public Works Agency. He began working with Rockridge neighbors on a park when he was a manager responsible for park maintenance and trees in about half the city. He was instrumental in renovating Colby Park and, later, in the multiyear effort creating Frog Park, the Rockridge-Temescal Greenbelt.
