What’s good for Catalinais good for Prospect
On January 26, 2023 the Redondo Beach City Council voted to disapprove the Catalina Village project at 100-132 N Catalina (“Council denies Catalina Village Project,” January 26, 2022). The Council determined it was not in compliance with various City and State codes. The Council is to be commended for its decision in overturning the analysis errors of the Planning Department staff, which found the project to be in compliance. In order to avoid another appeal situation with the PMB privately developed, owned and operated project on public, Beach Cities Health District land, the Council should provide clear guidance to the Planning Department staff regarding its review of the proposed, over 100-foot tall, nearly 300,000 square foot commercial development abutting residential neighborhoods.
