Peter Kraut for Calabasas City Council

Peter Kraut – A Positive Change for Calabasas City Council

“My greatest accomplishment on the Planning Commission is not a project or a vote. It is a change in attitude. When I took my seat, I made it a point to listen and respond to each and every point that was made by our community. I tried to make sure that anyone who brought a concern before the commission received a response.”


If Elected to City Council, I will:

Promote transparency in the City government.
Bring my business experience to all Council matters.
Hold developers accountable and protect the environment.
Continue to support our local schools.
Ensure that every voice is heard and considered before any vote.


I have lived in Calabasas for 15 years where my wife Lesli and I have raised two children. Our kids, Andrew and Rachel, attended local schools, including Lupin Hill Elementary School, A.E. Wright Middle School and Agoura High School. For the past 19 years, I have owned and operated my own firm, South Coast Engineering Group, employing over 20 engineers, designers and draftsmen here in Calabasas. I serve on the Planning Commission. I am an avid outdoorsman who loves hiking and backpacking, camping, water skiing and snow skiing. I have been an Assistant Scoutmaster in the Boy Scouts of America, Troop 127 for 10 years. Coaching and participating in dozens of Eagle Scout projects, I have contributed thousands of hours to planting trees, cleaning up trails, re-building habitats and improving our neighborhood parks. Calabasas is my home.
