DO NOT SHUT THE PUBLIC OUT! BCHD's PROJECT REVIEW MUST HAVE PUBLIC INPUT
No agreements between the City and BCHD should be signed until the City of Redondo Beach lays out a public process for participation in the environmental, ordinance compliance, and legal reviews of the BCHD project.
BCHD has already shut out the voices of the impacted public - the City of Redondo Beach cannot do the same.
BCHD is donating about $250,000 to the City of Redondo Beach. The City will use to money to hire consultants to review BCHD's self-approved environmental impact statement and to determine if BCHDs proposed, privately developed/owned/operated 107-1/2 foot tall, 275,000 sqft development complies with Redondo Beach Municipal Code.
WHY IS THE PUBLIC BEING SHUT OUT?
The 100 pages of legal agreements have no public input provisions, no public access provisions, no public committees, and no public meetings. This is a 100% in the shadows process and THAT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE to the public.
The City is responsible to protect its residents and taxpayers through open, transparent processes. Until the City includes taxpayers and residents in the process, no agreements with consultants or BCHD should be executed.
