CenterCal Properties, the developer chosen at the end of October by the Redondo Beach City Council to spearhead the revitalization of 15 acres of the Redondo Beach waterfront, will host two public-input meetings before the end of the year, the city announced this week.
The workshops will take place Tuesday, Nov. 27, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center and Saturday, Dec. 15, from 10 a.m. to noon on the second floor of the Main Library.

Residents are invited to attend the meetings to help craft a vision for the future of the waterfront property, which includes the Redondo Beach Pier and Pier Plaza, International Boardwalk, Redondo Beach Marina and Seaside Lagoon.
"This opportunity to help remake our waterfront south of Portofino Way is a once in a generation opportunity for you to have a big impact on what gets built," Councilman Bill Brand, whose District 2 includes the waterfront area, wrote in an email to supporters and constituents. "And whatever does get built will be here for a very, very long time."
CenterCal beat out finalists Lowe Enterprises and Pacifica Companies after a five-month selection process primarily because of its retail-first approach and strong financial backing, according to members of the city council.
The Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center is located at 1935 Manhattan Beach Blvd. in North Redondo Beach. The Redondo Beach Main Library is located at 303 N. Pacific Coast Hwy. in South Redondo Beach.
