General Meeting Sept 17; New highrise comes to PCH

September General Meeting:

the drought, its impacts, and

what can be done about it

Wednesday Sept 17 7:00pm
Richardson Middle School
doors open at 6:30

This first program for 2013-14 will feature two excellent speakers to discuss the effects of the drought on our area, and to suggest ways to minimize the impact on your own home and yard, including information on drought-resistant and native California plants.

Light refreshments will be served; succulent plants will be available for sale from the Cactus Society.

Come early to pick up flyers and information, and use the opportunity to renew your membership and meet with RHA Board members and other neighbors.


New development on PCH

You may know of the proposed Legado re-development of the PCH/PV Blvd corner, including the PV Inn and the retail component including the old Bristol Farms building.  This is in Redondo Beach, not Torrance, but directly across PCH from Hollywood Riviera, which will be impacted by construction, and increased traffic.    There will be a hearing November 20 in Redondo Beach, and comments are being accepted by that city now.   The RHA Board has taken no formal position on this, but did want to bring it to residents’ attention.  For more information on this project, please visit the city website (link here).
