Coastal Council Action

At its March 17 meeting, the Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council took action on a number of measures. The council voted to:

  • Propose that a “Q” condition similar to the McCowan’s development be implemented at projects planned for 33rd Street and Peck Avenue and in the 2300 block of Gaffey Street;
  • Recommend that the city’s Board of Public Works deny permits legalizing structures built by the school district at Point Fermin Elementary School;
  • Urge the city council to outlaw plastic bags used by retail outlets such as grocery stores;
  • Sponsor the 2008 season of Shakespeare by the Sea for $2,500;
  • Spend $3,000 to sponsor this year’s Fourth of July fireworks show at Cabrillo Beach;
  • Ask the Board of Harbor Commissioners to move forward on proposed improvements at Ports O’ Call Village;
  • Request that the city’s Department of Transportation study the possibility of restriping Paseo del Mar between Gaffey and Roxbury Streets to improve pedestrian safety and provide additional parking;
  • Seek Councilwoman Janice Hahn’s help to get other cities in our area to make it tougher for vandals to purchase spray paint.
  • Submit the nominations of Linda Marinkovich and Robert Farrell for appointment to the Pacific Corridor Community Advisory Committee of the city’s Community Redevelopment Agency.

The council also considered amendments to its bylaws to align them with election regulations required by the city.

The council meets on the third Monday of the month. For more information, visit
