Summer’s Political Agenda

The Northwest San Pedro Neighborhood Council meets Monday at 6:30 p.m. at Peck Park. This will be the first meeting for the three new boardmembers elected in June, when five incumbents were also re-elected. The meeting agenda was not available at presstime. Visit or call (310)-732-4522.

A new committee will be getting to work regarding Knoll Hill. The port-sponsored committee will study and recommend future uses for Knoll Hill. At Tuesday’s Central San Pedro Neighborhood Council meeting, Sue Castillo, Andrew Silber, Phil Trigas, Carrie Scoville, John Delgado, Jr. and Max Pierce were appointed to the committee. Linda Marinkovich and Bruce Horton have been appointed from the Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council. The Northwest San Pedro Neighborhood Council has yet to name its two representatives.

Any day now, the port will release the draft environmental impact report for the Bridge-to-Breakwater redevelopment project. In May, the port made a preliminary presentation to neighborhood councils and other civic groups, who are now anticipating the official release this month.

Meanwhile, individual waterfront projects are proceeding, such as the Las Vegas-style fountain at First Street and Harbor Boulevard. Tests are underway ahead of the July 25 official unveiling. Much to the dismay of port officials, neighborhood children have been using the fountain as a wading pool, the Daily Breeze reports.

Information has been released for the Central neighborhood council election on Sept. 9, when five seats will be filled. Prospective candidates can find the eligibility requirements and election timeline in the filing forms.

Are we going to redo that bridge off the 110/Gaffey enterance anytime soon? Just a little facelift would make visitors more welcome, and locals less embarassed by such an aging, low-end first impression of our city. Thanks!
