Knoll Hill Ball Fields Would Violate State Law, Residents Told

A state official reaffirmed this week that ball fields on Knoll Hill would run afoul of the law. The comment came in a conference call with community leaders involved in planning future uses for the hilltop, port-owned land.

Under the state Tidelands Trust law, land use must serve the interests of the general public, broadly defined, and the San Pedro committee’s proposals for amenities such as ball fields, an ampitheatre and a playground would be considered to cater to local users, according to the state official on the call.

This Daily Breeze story outlined the issues ahead of the call and this news brief reports on the outcome.
