About Redondo Beach

Redondo Beach is a full-service city with its own police, fire and public works departments, two public libraries, a performing arts center, fifteen parks, thirteen parkettes, a large recreational and commercial harbor including King Harbor, a 1,500-slip private craft port; the Redondo Beach Pier and Seaside Lagoon; and a bathing and surfing beach.

Located in the choice coastal edge of Los Angeles County, just twenty miles from downtown Los Angeles and seven miles south of Los Angeles International Airport, Redondo Beach has been a preferred resort destination for more than a century and one of the most desirable areas to live in the country. The City’s population has been slowly, but steadily growing in the past few years. As of January 2000, the Census reports a total population of 63,261. Median home price is approximately $465,000[1]

Significant concentrations of employment and retail activity include the northern industrial complex anchored by the TRW campus; the Harbor/Pier area; the Galleria at South Bay–-a regional mall anchoring the east end of the City; and an eclectic mix of specialty shops, restaurants and services known as the Riviera Village area in the south end of the City.

Redondo Beach is a “charter city” governed by a council-manager form of government. The Mayor is elected at large, and one Council Member is elected from each of the five City districts. The Mayor and Council appoint the City Manager as the chief administrative officer of the City to guide day-to-day operations.

The City’s budget (General Fund appropriations) for Fiscal Year 2004-05 is $51,996,470. Approximate per capita expenditures are $777 per year. The City employs a workforce of 577 full-time equivalent positions.

Historical Facts:
 

Redondo Beach, California

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Redondo Beach is a city in Los Angeles County, California, United States. The population was 63,261 at the 2000 census. The city is located in the South Bay region of the greater Los Angeles area and is one of the three Beach Cities.

The city's primary attraction is its Municipal Pier, which is claimed to be one of the longest piers in North America. Its nicknames are the "Endless Pier" and "Horseshoe Pier" and is moderately popular with both tourists and fishermen. However, the pier's length is possible only because of its unusual shape (it does not go straight out to sea, but goes out diagonally and then returns to shore). The Redondo Beach Pier started as a reinforced concrete structure in 1914, then was replaced in 1928 with a timber pier. In 1988, the pier was severely battered by storms and later that year burned to the waterline (the fire was so large that a SigAlert was announced for the San Diego Freeway several miles away). The pier's modern reinforced concrete version was completed in 1996, and has brought back the appeal to Redondo Beach's business district ever since.

According to the local newspaper, the Daily Breeze, the pier area used to be heavily crowded with tourists and locals during the 1970s. It began to decline after the nearby Seaport Village project failed and went into bankruptcy in 1982, and went into free fall when the pier burned down in 1988. Subsequent attempts to resuscitate the area's former popularity have been hindered by the need to comply with California Coastal Conservancy regulations, and the concurrent success of redevelopment projects in the two other Beach Cities, Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach, and also in the nearby city of Torrance.

The city's territory has an unusual shape because it controls a long block of land dividing the two other beach cities (Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach) from the inland city of Torrance. The western terminus of the Metro Rail Green Line is in Redondo Beach.

A community has many voices, and those who are not aware of either your community or the diversity among your very own people should be likewise known.

This is a mirror reflection of us all, and depicts the very differences each community has, which then becomes the very scoiocultural richness and valuable assests we need to maintain a rich an full life -individually. Moreover, this effort was started as a result when suggestions were offered by two Cornell student's emails - right after I place Ithaca Night Life ( NightLife ), NY online.

Cultural Communications:

Cultural communications is the very heart of this system, and through the internet a free flow flow of information network has already been established to allow this to happen. What is being done, is that an intiative based upon cultural democracy has been now established for your the community online user to participate. More importantly, for those who are contributing valued information getting known on the internet too!

All too often, several events are simply not know by travelers, tourist, or those who are looking for communities to move and live. It is envisioned by this process that events become both known, and popular at the sametime. Moreover, new talent is happening all the time, and thus should likewise be promoted too!

Beyond that, is the emergence of the event provider, and thus system become even more crucial, and for two very important respects.

One: The promotion of the community itself, as represented in its entertainment value.

Two: The economic activity it establishes by which industries are likewise locally developed.

Thus this crucial initiative and where it starts for you is on this webpage...
