Week in Review

When the waterfront redevelopment plan was passed, nearly everyone cheered in unison. The planning and talking phase was finally over and the time had come to do something. No so fast. Today’s Daily Breeze looks at the just released timeline. See the details for yourself in the draft 11-year schedule and the draft implementation guidelines.

Here’s a feature story on City Attorney Carmen Trutanich, who tells the Daily Breeze he’s “a watchdog, not a politician.”

The fight to reduce downtown San Pedro parking fees continues with a petition campaign.

Traffic should improve at 71 San Pedro intersections by next September, now that work has begun to synchronize traffic lights under the high-tech Automated Traffic Surveillance and Control System (ATSAC). Here’s a Daily Breeze news brief and here’s the memo from the city Department of Transportation.

This week’s issue of Random Lengths News has a cover story on San Pedro High School plus stories on Knoll Hill, the meeting on light rail and other issues. (It was not posted online at presstime, so you’ll have to seek out the print edition around town.)

The November issue of San Pedro Today is circulating in print and online, featuring a cover story on the San Pedro Bay Historical Society.

The winter issue of the Northwest San Pedro Neighborhood Council newsletter includes updates on Averill Park, environmental cleanup at the former Kinder Morgan tank farm site, Peck Park Canyon trail restoration and much more news on area developments.
