Speak out on the Legado project in Redondo Beach
Are you following the pending Legado mixed-use project planned for the former Bristol Farms site at Pacific Coast Highway and Palos Verdes Boulevard in Redondo Beach?
Ready for a positive change to replace the vacant market building and the smoke stained Palos Verdes Inn with its broken sign and torn awnings blowing in the wind?
Please attend two very important public hearings — Planning Commission at 7 p.m. May 19 and City Council at 6 p.m. June 14, at the Redondo Beach City Council chambers, 415 Diamond St. — and say no to over development at 1700 S. Pacific Coast Highway.
Legado continues to push for its massive project: 146 market -rate apartments in five separate buildings up to three stories high with underground parking and 23,800 square feet of commercial space.
Its 149-unit plan was denied by the Planning Commission Nov. 19. The company filed its appeal in late November.
Local residents, who experience major traffic congestion and noise in this area now, have come out in large numbers to all the hearings to ask for a more reasonable plan. They voice concerns on public safety when walking their children to local schools and just crossing the dangerous intersection on foot. They report on the over parked conditions on nearby streets.
Neighbors of the Legado site just want a plan that fits in with the surrounding homes and businesses. They want to see the hotel remodeled and back in business, bringing jobs and tax revenue back to the city.
Please tell your neighbors and friends that it is not too late to get involved in this very important decision for Redondo Beach. Please go to www.redondo.org for project documents and how to contact local officials.
Let your voice be heard and come out to Save The Riviera!
