Coastal Commission Meets in Redondo

The California Coastal Commission holds authority over coastal development permits along the state's coast.

The California Coastal Commission—a 12-member panel that holds authority over coastal development permits and other matters concerning the state's 1,100-mile coast—is in Redondo Beach for its February meeting.

Bringing the commission to the city "is a real coup," City Manager Bill Workman said in January at a city council meeting.

The two-day meeting started Wednesday and will continue Thursday at 8:30 a.m. No items from Redondo Beach appear to be on the agenda; however, the commission will hear on Thursday an application from the city of Los Angeles to install a 750-foot zip line in Venice for a three-month pilot program this spring and summer.

Redondo Beach city officials hosted a reception for commission officials and members of the public at Seaside Lagoon on Wednesday night. A field trip to the Airport Dunes restoration area at Los Angeles International Airport is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., after which commissioners will return to Redondo Beach City Hall to continue the meeting.

The next Coastal Commission meeting will be in San Diego on March 6-8.

How do we get the Coastal Commission to hold a similar hearing in Hermosa Beach? No new oil drilling permits have been issued in Los Angeles in over 60 years. http://www.nobpinhb.com
