City Hall News Roundup

South Shores RV Parking: A pilot program is underway in South Shores to enforce limits on RV parking. Under a 30-day experiment announced Thursday by Councilwoman Janice Hahn, oversized vehicles are not allowed to park from 2 to 6 a.m. between Western Avenue and the Palos Verdes border.

Oversized is defined as longer than 22 feet or higher than seven feet, according to Friday’s Daily Breeze story. Violators will be ticketed beginning today. RVs may still park in the area if owners have purchased a three-day permit from the city Department of Transportation.

Downtown Redevelopment: The Los Angeles City Council voted to expand the pool of those paying a special tax to revitalize downtown San Pedro. The measure, authored by Councilwoman Hahn, widens the existing business improvement district (BID) to include all property owners.

Currently, only businesses are part of the BID. Now, it’s up to all property owners to vote on whether to implement the P-BID, writes Donna Littlejohn in Friday’s Daily Breeze.
