View Ordinance passed!

As many of you already know, the City Council and Mayor voted on Feb. 28, to approve the revised draft  of the Torrance Tree and View Ordinance!

The ordinance has most of the features that we were hoping to get: it is based on the Rolling Hills model,  it does not require the people involved to attend planning commission or city council hearings, it includes a visit to the viewseeker’s home by a city representative who will decide if there is a view obstruction, it is a fairly simple process, it is reasonably priced.

The ordinance will go into effect soon, and we will keep you updated as the work is completed.  Our general meeting on April 26, to which you are invited, will feature assistant Director of the Community Development Department Linda Cessna, who will present an overview of the ordinance in more depth, and provide an opportunity to have your questions answered.

Thank you to everyone who wrote letters to the mayor and council, your attendance at community, RHA, and city council meetings and for your support over the last five (!) years.

Keep an eye on your email for the April edition of the Riviera Reporter, with more info on the view ordinance, and other issues of interest to Riviera residents.   Thanks to your voluntary dues, we are able to sustain the meetings, the newsletter, and all the behind the scenes work that goes on.
