Now, therefore be it resolved that by the adoption of this resolution, the Mayor and the City Council of the City of Los Angeles hereby congratulates Philip Boesch, Jr. for his years of service to Heal the Bay and acknowledges and commends him for his leadership during his term as President of the organization and his longstanding efforts on behalf of Los Angeles residents who benefit from clean coastal waters.” 

“Philip Boesch’s leadership as President has sustained Heal the Bay as one of Los Angeles’ foremost environmental organizations, with a reputation for sound environmental policy and strong technical expertise.”

“Philip Boesch has worked tirelessly to restore and enhance Southern California’s waters through pollution reduction and regulatory compliance”

“During Philip Boesch’s term as president, Heal the Bay achieved numerous accomplishments including the adoption by the State Regional Water Quality Control Board of rigorous new standards to reduce coastal pollution, the completion of a multi-billion dollar sewage treatment facility at Hyperion, and successful litigation against The Federal Environmental Protection Agency to enforce existing coastal protection laws”

“Heal the Bay is indebted to Phil Boesch for his leadership as President of the organization. Under his leadership, Heal the Bay continued to increase in size, scope of programs, and stature in the community. Phil was also instrumental in bringing new leadership on to our incredible Board of Directors.”Heal the Bay Tribute Journal 

“Heal the Bay’s strategic plan committee (led by Phil) asked for more public education and greater geographic outreach. To that end, Heal the Bay developed three major new programs under Phil’s tenure: an amazing web site, the Key program (targeting elementary school children throughout Los Angeles County), and the expansion of Heal the Bay Beach Report Card to nearly all of Southern California.”Heal the Bay Tribute Journal

Phil wanted Heal the Bay to get more aggressive in the use of its membership to eliminate pollution. The organization responded by creating the Malibu Creek Street Team volunteer mentoring program, which has identified and mapped dozens of pollution sources and degraded habitats in the Malibu Creek Watershed. Volunteers monitor water quality in the watershed at least once per month. Another new volunteer program is Heal the Bay’s emergency response beach clean-up program.”Heal the Bay Tribute Journal

“Boesch is especially ardent about his work on behalf of children. Paul Petersen of A Minor Consideration, a non-profit organization for the support of former and current child actors, followed Boesch’s successful trial in the case of former “Different Strokes” television star Gary Coleman. ‘Every kid actor owes Boesch a debt of gratitude’, says Petersen. ‘He is concerned and up to speed on the surrounding issues of working children. He has more than I can count, given his time and treasure to the working kids in this town, and his handling of Gary Coleman in a very difficult place is the stuff of legends. He not only won the case, but he helped keep that young man together.’ 

Boesch’s work with children extends beyond the field of show business. As a baseball coach in Pacific Palisades, Brentwood and the West LA Pony League, his team made the “World Series” finals four years in a row. He is even prouder, he says, of founding the Westside Breakers Soccer Club, the only soccer club for girls in the LA area.” – Brentwood News
