“Prioritizing Our Quality of Life Instead of Over-development” “I’m inspired by the potential of what Redondo Beach can become, North and South, and inspired by the residents who are working so hard to protect our quality of life.”

Proposed CenterCal Harbor Restoration
The CenterCal project for King Harbor is an abomination. For years I’ve wanted to revitalize King Harbor because we all know it needs it, but never did I imagine doubling development, doubling traffic, building on the Seaside Lagoon, blocking views all along Harbor Dr. with a 45’ parking structure next to movie theatres and cramming every public use we built the Harbor for on Mole B.
AES Powerplant and Future Use of the Property–
Redondo Beach should be leading the effort to rezone the entire waterfront, including the proposed CenterCal site and the AES property. We, together, need to develop a vision that embraces what is unique about our town and establish a zoning that achieves that vision. Then select a developer that agrees to execute it. Not the other way around, as has already happened with CenterCal. A mall developer created the current vision you see for King Harbor, with the full support of Mayor Aspel. He even appeared in the promotional video.
North Redondo
Lets talk about North Redondo. It needs revitalizing as well. Particularly the Galleria. Unfortunately, the Galleria is currently zoned for mixed-use that allows 35 condos/apartments per acre, plus any affordable housing density bonus. Just like Legado Former Bristol Farms) and Sea-breeze in District 1, the developer is planning to roll out another huge project that will bring tremendous impacts to those neighborhoods.
