CSPNC | January Motions near the Ocean

Three motions were passed during the Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council last week that is of interest to Palisades Residents.

They are:

PUBLIC SAFETY MOTION | Alma Street Signage

The Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council requests that the City of Los Angeles Department of Transportation immediately post weight limit signs on Alma Street entering from 25th Street and also from 37th Street, and that those weight restrictions be enforced by LAPD Traffic Patrol officers.

PUBLIC SAFETY MOTION | Alma Street

Whereas the City of Los Angeles Bureau of Street Services and Bureau of Engineering, and Department of Transportation have identified numerous structural deficiencies on Alma Street between 25th Street and 37th Street, and

Whereas Los Angeles Police Department records document accident rates on this section of Alma Street far exceed the combined total of all Proposed Bond Eligible Streets in the Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council District, and

Because the Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council is aware of and concerned by the public safety issues identified by Los Angeles City and County agencies,

Therefore, the Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council requests a meeting with CD15 and representatives from the above mentioned departments to re-designate Alma Street between 25th Street and 37th Street from a Proposed Bond Eligible Street to a Priority Street so that funds can be allocated to make required repairs immediately, or, to close Alma Street to local traffic only until all public safety hazards can be mitigated.

LANDSLIDE MOTION | White Point ad hoc Landslide Committee

Whereas the County of Los Angeles Coastal Development Permit No. 5-12-28 applicable to the newly rerouted storm drains at 1600 South Paseo Del Mar (east of White Point Landslide) includes the statement, “Once a final decision has been made regarding the repair of Paseo Del Mar, the Los Angeles County Flood Control District intends to develop and implement plans to relocate the storm drains to a location and alignment that is compatible with the repair to Paseo Del Mar, and will submit a separate application for a permit from the Coastal Commission for such work at that time.”

Therefore be it resolved, the Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council requests the California Coastal Commission and County of Los Angeles ensure that the referenced storm drains be replaced as soon as possible with a solution that eliminates the negative effects resulting from the current storm drains, including erosion, threat to public safety (the current above-ground piping is used as a stairway), and aesthetics in the otherwise beautiful coastal bluff area.

Further be it resolved, the Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council requests that the City Council District 15 support the above CSPNC request as stated to the California Coastal Commission and the County of Los Angeles.

  1. My wife and I have raised our family here in SP for 53 years. We once lived in an apartment on Emily above Alma. Back in the 60;’s and I suspose now, Alma was a place where people used to race one another.,
    Now, since the planning stages of the New High School there has been a few who didn’t want the kids riding on the few buses up and down Alma to the new school..
    I am not sure why these few feel that a PUBLIC STREET isn’t for the PUBLIC, including school buses? There are some who have painted signs that are almost as large as their homes. I wonder what that is doing to the value of perspective buyers in that area?
    Now these few are demanding that the city upgrade the street, which would be fine with me but these few don’t want to stop there, they want the entire streert closed to through traffic.
    What with the land slide at White Point, this would funnel all traffic to Paseo down Gaffey or Patton St.
    Those of you envolved, In my opinion, need to get a grip and realize Alma is a PUBLIC STREET!
    Thanks for listening to my point of view!

  2. Oops, I ment to say that people have used Alma for years as a drag raceway.

  3. Living on S. Pacific Ave, we would like to see Paseo Del Mar restored as we now have to put up with the traffic that does not go on Western and down to the Point. Us folks along S. Pacific Ave. would like to see some traffic enforcement. Neither the speed limit is not being enforced nor is the noise limit for motorcycles being enforced, Unfortunately, San Pedro seems to be a city where laws are not enforced unless they involve some type of violent crime.
