View Equity Ordinance to go before Planning Commission

We have heard from the city that the draft View Equity Ordinance will be heard by the Planning Commission on Wednesday, Feb 1 at 7:00pm, in City Council chambers. Once the Planning Commission makes a recommendation to the City Council to adopt the Ordinance, without further revisions, it will be heard at the soonest available City Council meeting, likely on Feb 28 and will go into effect shortly thereafter. As before, residents are encouraged to attend the meeting, or submit written comments to the Community Development Department.

A draft of the ordinance can be found on the City of Torrance website.

RHA to award Scholarships again this year

One of the most rewarding activities of the RHA is the annual award of scholarships to deserving students who live in the Hollywood Riviera.  This year, the RHA will award two $1,000 scholarships to graduating seniors.  Please encourage eligible students to apply by March 13 this year.  Instructions can be found on our website here.  We love all our Riviera students!

Wondering about Legado?

The developers proposing the mixed-use project at 1700 PCH (corner of PV Blvd) have come back with a revised plan. The City Council of Redondo Beach will hold a Public Hearing on Tuesday Evening, February 7th, 2017, 6:00PM at 415 Diamond Street in the RB Council Chambers, next to the Main Library.  Located adjacent to the Riviera in the city of Redondo Beach, the “Legado Redondo” project will have important consequences for the area for many years, including the traffic impact at that corner.

Redondo Beach Election – 

We can’t vote in it, but the outcome will certainly affect us for generations to come. Contests are for a new Mayor, as well as City Council (including District 1 which abuts Hollywood Riviera). There’s also Measure C, which will determine the extent to which RB will  be able to build out the precious Harbor area. “What happens in Redondo doesn’t always stay in Redondo,” so make sure your RB family and friends are informed about candidates and issues (such as mixed-use zoning) that already impact us. Tell them to vote on March 7th. You can make donations, too!
