Public Hearing Monday on Waterfront Redevelopment

The Port of L.A. is hosting a community meeting Monday on waterfront redevelopment.

Official public testimony will be taken at the meeting, set for Oct. 27 at 6 p.m. at the Crowne Plaza hotel, 601 S Palos Verdes St.

The meeting will include a presentation on the draft environmental impact report (DEIR), a voluminous study of ways to improve the waterfront.

The report outlines proposals to create a pedestrian promenade, build water cuts along the Main Channel, add two cruise ship terminals, build parks and open space, create opportunities for new businesses and cultural attractions, redevelop Ports O’ Call Village, realign streets, de-industrialize some areas and extend the Red Car route to Cabrillo Beach.

The public can provide verbal comment at the hearing and/or submit written comment through Dec. 8, 2008.

Staff will then incorporate the public comment into a final environmental impact report, which then must be approved by the Board of Harbor Commissioners.

The press release contains an overview of the project and the 41-page readers guide is the “Cliff’s Notes” version of the EIR.
