Knoll Hill Update

Port officials will give a presentation on Knoll Hill at Thursday’s Harbor commission meeting. Inclusion of ball fields remains the most controversial part of the “preferred alternative,” generating opposition from community activists and legal objections from state authorities.

Meanwhile, the Central San Pedro Neighborhood Council voted Tuesday to endorse a Knoll Hill plan that does not include ball fields. By a 10-2 margin, board members signaled support for “passive” open space and non-specific active recreational activities. The two dissenting votes were cast by councilmembers Sue Castillo and Phill Trigas, who served on the port-sponsored advisory committee that authored the plan with ball fields, which the neighborhood council effectively voted down.

Finally, time is running out for the Eastview Little League to relocate from Knoll Hill but they are “striking out on new fields.”
