Debate Question 4:

 

Do you believe the findings from the "Reducing Alcohol-Related Harms in Los Angeles County" report regarding the relationship of alcohol outlet density to increased violent crime, 

car crashes and drinking-related deaths in a city?

 

Do you think Hermosa Beach has health related impacts caused by too many alcohol outlets?

________________________________________________________________________________

 

Debate Question 5:

How significant of a problem is alcohol-related crime in the downtown area after midnight?

Do positive impacts out weigh the negative impacts, as a result of alcohol sales 

and consumption after midnight in Hermosa Beach?

YouTube Video:

http://youtu.be/5iQcZ7hYJU8  

________________________________________________________________________________

 

 

Debate Question 6:

A law passed in March 2009 in Hermosa Beach that allowed 
restaurants that closed by 10 p.m. the ability to obtain an 
ABC On-Sale Beer and Wine license “by right”. 

The 2009 “alcohol by right” law eliminated a long standing 
Conditional Use Permit process and the public hearings for the approval 
of an ABC license for a restaurant that closes at 10 pm.

Before this "alcohol by right" law was passed in 2009, 
all Hermosa residents and homeowners within 500 feet of the new 
ABC license were notified by mail and the Hermosa Beach 
Planning Commission held public hearings and voted to approve 
or deny any new ABC license to sell beer and wine in a restaurant.

The construction of a new multi-level parking garage can create 400 
or more new “in lieu” parking spaces in Hermosa Beach. 

These new “in lieu” parking spaces, when purchased by a new restaurant operators, 
will allow the opening of numerous 10 pm “alcohol by right” restaurants 
that can not open now, because of the lack of parking.

Should the Hermosa Beach City Council restore the 
Conditional Use Permit process and the holding of 
public hearings in order to grant any 
new ABC licenses for restaurants?

The City of Hermosa Beach was included in the "Reducing Alcohol-Related Harms in Los Angeles County" report, which includes 117 cities and communities in Los Angeles County.

Here is a quote from paragraph 4 of a 5 paragraph statement from Jonathan E. Fielding, Director of Public Health and Health Officer, from page 2 of the pdf, "Reducing Alcohol-Related Harms in Los Angeles County":

___________________________________________________

"A high density of alcohol outlets increases alcohol consumption, motor vehicle crashes, alcohol-related hospital admissions, injury deaths, assaults and violent crime, suicides, drinking and driving, child maltreatment and neighborhood disturbances.  

In this report, we examined the relationship between the density of alcohol outlets and three alcohol-related harms in 117 cities and communities across Los Angeles County and found similar results; increased rates of violent crime, alcohol-involved motor vehicle crashes, and alcohol related deaths were all associated with having a high density of alcohol outlets in that city or community."

Jonathan E. Fielding, MD, MPH

Director of Public Health and Health Officer

___________________________________________________

Quote from page 6 of the pdf "Reducing Alcohol-Related Harms in Los Angeles County" report.

"Communities with a high density of either On- or Off-Premises outlets were . . 9 to 10 times more likely to have increased rates of violent crime"

___________________________________________________

Quotes from page 11 of the pdf, "Reducing Alcohol-Related Harms in Los Angeles County" report.

"Excessive consumption of alcohol is a major public health concern among teenagers and adults in Los Angeles County, with significant health and economic impacts.  

These impacts include societal harms not only from illnesses, but also due to injuries, violent crimes and property crimes, traffic accidents, work loss, and community and family disruptions."

"The findings in this analysis are consistent with previous studies which have shown significant associations between alcohol availability and alcohol-related harms.  

For example, environmental factors such as the density of alcohol outlets have been found to play an important role in teenage drinking.  

Among  teenagers in California, binge drinking and driving after drinking have been associated with the availability of alcohol outlets within a half-mile from home."

Greater Alcohol Availability Associated with Increase in Violent Crime, Car Crashes, and Drinking-Related Deaths

Report examines relationship between alcohol outlet density by community and alcohol-related harms

http://www.lapublichealth.org/epi/docs/AOD%20final%20print%20secured.pdf

LOS ANGELES - Excessive consumption of alcohol is a major public health problem among teenagers and adults in Los Angeles County

According to a report released by the Department of Public Health today, each year 2,500 people in the county die from alcohol-related causes, with the loss of approximately 78,000 years of potential life. It is the second-leading cause of premature death and disability in the county.

The report, "Reducing Alcohol-Related Harms in Los Angeles County," examines the density of alcohol outlets in 117 cities and communities across the County and highlights the relationship between alcohol outlet density and alcohol-related harms.

"Excessive alcohol consumption, which includes binge drinking and heavy drinking, not only has devastating personal effects, but also takes a tremendous toll on families and communities," said Jonathan E. Fielding, MD, MPH, Director of Public Health and Health Officer.

"Increased alcohol availability contributes to abuse, leads to serious medical illnesses and impaired mental health. Drinking too much also results in increased motor vehicle crashes and violent crime, family disruptions, and impaired performance at work and school - costing Los Angeles County nearly $11 billion dollars a year."

Key findings from the report include:

- 16 percent of county adults are binge drinkers, and one in five Los Angeles-area 
high school students reported binge drinking at least once in the past month

- Communities with a high density of restaurants, bars or stores selling 
alcohol were much more likely to have increased rates of violent crime

- Communities with a high density of outlets where patrons can consume alcohol 
were three times more likely to have increased rates of alcohol-involved vehicle crashes

- Communities with a high density of outlets where alcoholic beverages are sold for consumption elsewhere were five times more likely to have increased rates of alcohol-related deaths

"Alcohol is the most frequently used drug among teenagers and is a 
leading cause of death from injuries among people under the age of 21," 
said John Viernes, Jr., Director of Substance Abuse Prevention and Control, 
Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. 

"Preventing and reducing underage drinking, which increases 
the risk of alcohol- related problems later in life, is especially important. 

We would like to work closely with communities to take preventive actions at the community level."

The report lists several strategies communities can use 

to reduce alcohol-related consequences including:

- Implementing and enforcing local ordinances to limit alcohol outlet density.

- Restricting the availability and accessibility of alcohol to minors.

- Reducing youth exposure to alcohol advertising.

- Ensuring compliance with responsible sales and serving practices.

- Providing education to youth on the hazards of alcohol and the legal and social consequences of use.

- Improving access to mental health and substance abuse services.

For a full copy of the report, "Reducing Alcohol-Related Harms in Los Angeles County",

The Department of Public Health is committed to protecting and improving 
the health of the nearly 10 million residents of Los Angeles County

Through a variety of programs, community partnerships and services, Public Health oversees environmental health, disease control, and community and family health.

Public Health comprises more than 4,000 employees 

and has an annual budget exceeding $750 million.

One of the quotes from the: 

 

Reducing Alcohol-Related Harms in Los Angeles County” report stated:

"Communities with a high density of either On- or Off-Premises outlets were

. . 9 to 10 times more likely to have increased rates of violent crime"

Data compiled from the: 

Reducing Alcohol-Related Harms in Los Angeles County” report showed that:
 

- Hermosa Beach had 4 times the On-Premises alcohol outlet density
compared to all of Los Angeles County.

.
- Among the 7 South Bay cities bordering the ocean, 
from El Segundo south to Rancho Palos Verdes, 
Hermosa Beach ranked Number 1 in the rate of violent crime.  
 

.

- Hermosa Beach had more than double the rate of violent crime 

compared to Manhattan Beach.  

.

 

- Hermosa Beach had more than 3 times the rate of violent crime 

compared to Rancho Palos Verdes.

.

 

- Hermosa Beach had more than 10 times the rate of violent crime 

compared to Palos Verdes Estates.

Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach were both listed 

as having a “High Level” of alcohol outlet density.  

 

Data from the report showed that Hermosa Beach had more than

double the rate of violent crime compared to Manhattan Beach.   

 

In the past the HBPD has stated that over-crowding, over-serving 

and under-age drinking were problems that had to be dealt with.

 

Does over-crowding, over-serving and under-age drinking 

continue to be problem in Hermosa Beach?

Blue 32 faces early last call in Hermosa Beach

By Andrea Woodhouse, Staff Writer

The Hermosa Beach Planning Commission is chasing last month's decision to close a rowdy downtown bar early with another round tonight.

This time, the target is Blue 32, a popular tavern that could also see its operating permit modified in response to alleged violations of occupancy and state alcohol laws.

During its annual behavior check of the city's bars and taverns, the commission in February agreed to further study Blue 32, as well as the Shore and Dragon, which saw its hours slashed by the panel in May.

For the Hermosa Avenue establishment, Blue 32, the city staff has proposed several revisions to the bar's operating permit, including a provision that would allow the city to temporarily revoke alcohol sales and live entertainment if Blue 32 exceeds its occupancy limit of 126 people.

Most notably, as it did with Dragon, Hermosa has also proposed an earlier close time for Blue 32 - midnight instead of 2 a.m. on weekends.

Shaving two hours off the bar's weekend hours would significantly threaten its survival - specifically costing the 3-year-old business up to $10,000 in weekly revenue, owner Dave Lowe said.  "At stake is the entire survival of the businesses," he said. "We can't operate under those restrictions."

In a 466-page packet that Blue 32 owners submitted to the city, dozens of letters from patrons advocate a 2a.m. closing time.  "It is not uncommon that night life, beginning with dinner, doesn't even begin until 9 p.m.," wrote Simon Giles, a Redondo Beach resident.

"To imagine that my night would end before it even begins would definitely lead me outside Hermosa Beach to take my revenue to a destination where I can linger and enjoy all it has to offer."

Wrote patron Kimberly Glasing: "My husband and I have two young children and have a hard time getting a night out before 9 p.m. We enjoy being able to go to a nice establishment for dinner and would be sadden(ed) if the Planning Commission closed such establishments."

Hermosa Beach police statistics show the department received 118 calls for service in 2007 and the first few months of 2008.

City planners believe an earlier last-call for Blue 32 would help curb nighttime noise and disruptions.  "It is concluded that an earlier closing time would substantially reduce the calls for police service and better protect public safety," the staff report stated.

But Blue 32 owners strongly dispute the police figures.  After spending about 100 hours going through police reports and logs, Lowe determined that at least 40 percent of the police calls linked to Blue 32 were incorrectly attributed, he said.

To ensure the establishment follows Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control requirements that it sell no more booze than food, city staff also have proposed Blue 32 owners have a certified public accountant to monthly sign off on food and alcohol sales receipts.  Following that regulation could cost Blue 32 up to $5,000 a week, Lowe said.

The Planning Commission in recent months has taken a hard stance on Hermosa's raucous downtown night life.  February's bar review was the first in four years to spark any further examination of a tavern's adherence to its operating permit.

And last month's decision to modify Dragon's operating permit came as a pleasant surprise to Hermosa's bar critics.  Dragon owners have appealed the decision to the City Council, which will take up the matter next week.

The Planning Commission tonight also is set to discuss the operating permit of downtown hotspot the Shore, but that hearing will likely be continued until next month.

While he doesn't believe Blue 32 has been unfairly targeted, Lowe said Hermosa Beach should treat all downtown bars and restaurants equally.  "It just doesn't seem like a fair system," said Lowe, who has spent $20,000 in legal fees for tonight's hearing. "If the city wants to move down the line of closing everyone at midnight, then do that across the board."

Monday's Letters to the Editor

Don't fence off beaches

I again enjoyed watching Hermosa Beach's Association of Volleyball Professionals tournament recently.

Many were surprised to see paid admission and fenced-off portions of the beach. Others probably stayed away from the event. Attendance appeared to be down from previous years.

I testified at a 2007 Coastal Commission hearing that paid admissions need to be controlled on public beaches and thought that commission staff recommended 25 percent paid stadium seating (such as in Manhattan Beach) was a reasonable compromise and in the spirit of the Coastal Act. The commission instead voted 6-5 to allow the maximum paid to 90 percent and fenced-off beaches for paid courts. That maximum remains until a new commission takes a new vote. The reason we saw this for the first time in the South Bay was that Hermosa's outdated AVP contract allowed for it.

This year, Hermosa will negotiate a new contract. I hope that the City Council will negotiate a reasonable contract that allows the AVP to bring in revenue to pay more players, provides a reasonable amount of free seating in the stadium and absolutely has no fenced-off areas on the sand. I encourage people to follow the issue and get involved before we see continued privatizing of our precious sand.

Hermosa Beach hit-and-run sentencing postponed for the 7th time

 

By Denise Nix

Deputy District Attorney Paul Guthrie thinks the 8th time will be the charm for Ruben Vargas, who is expected to be sentenced to 16 months in prison for leaving the scene of an accident. His truck went into a Hermosa Beach house, injuring a sleeping 5-year-old inside.

Proceedings actually got underway today, as both sides began haggling about restitution. In the end, Judge Eric Taylor agreed that the family should get the full $66,192.16 they're asking for - but there's a hold-up because it's not clear how much Vargas' insurance company has paid them, and for what.

Vargas' attorney tried arguing that his client shouldn't pay the full restitution, maintaining Vargas wasn't driving when the truck crashed, only that he drove away. None of that is very clear, but Taylor agreed with Guthrie that it's a moot point since Vargas, has, in fact, pleaded no contest.

Hermosa Beach pair object to fee hikes

By Andrea Woodhouse, Staff Writer


It was the new guard vs. the old guard Tuesday as two first-term Hermosa Beach City Council members refused to approve a budget containing nearly $600,000 in fee increases to help balance the books.

City Councilmen Kit Bobko and Michael DiVirgilio, with the support of longtime Councilman Michael Keegan, managed to delay approval of the 2008-09 budget, requesting more time to study it and explore possible reductions instead of fee hikes.

"I have some problems with these fees," said Bobko, who was elected to his first term in a special June 2006 election. "I do not support just raising the fees out of hand without having corresponding cuts somewhere."

The $27.8 million operating budget proposed about $596,000 in fee increases to meet a shortfall without slashing services.

Attributing the deficit to lower property tax revenues, as well as flattening sales and utility-users' tax revenues, the city staff proposed charging for street sweeping; hiking recreation activities, business license applications and business license renewal fees; as well as parking fines.

In a 3-2 vote, the council decided to hash out the budget again in another workshop, this time reviewing proposed reductions equal to the revenue raised by the proposed fee hikes - except for parking fine increases, which council members didn't contest Tuesday.

"I'm sorry if I'm new," said DiVirgilio, who won his seat in November. "I expect someone is going to find me very cute this evening. But if I was sitting on my couch watching this, I'd be saying, `Why are they raising before cutting?"'

Bobko and DiVirgilio's dissatisfaction with the budget proposal, which the council already vetted in a May 29 workshop, visibly rankled Mayor J.R. Reviczky.

"You know, I keep throwing them and you keep missing them," he said. "This budget is based on no cuts. OK? This budget is based on doing the exact same thing we did last year, and to do the exact same thing as we did last year, the city manager came up with ways to pay for it."

Bobko and DiVirgilio also disapproved of the budget on a philosophical basis, arguing that it focused too much on individual elements of the city's coffers, instead of an overall policy and direction for the city's finances and planning.

"I think the days of doing everything are probably behind us, at least for the next few years, and that we need to make some hard choices," Bobko said. "And I, for one, don't really believe we have faced those choices yet."

Also Tuesday, a handful of residents appealed to the council to budget some cash assistance for the city's struggling school district.

Hermosa voters last week shot down a parcel tax aimed at maintaining existing school programs, including class-size reduction, music and technology.

While it didn't offer any cash, the council promised to discuss ways the city could assist the school district in upcoming regular meetings between officials from both agencies.

But with a council majority looking to slash next year's budget by more than $500,000, Reviczky warned that extra cash for the school district would be unlikely.

"You cut $600,000 out of this budget," he said, "and you can kiss a gift to the schools goodbye."

Heirs put Hermosa Beach's Mermaid on sale again

Plan to build a seaside hotel on Pier Plaza site derails.

 

By Andrea Woodhouse, Staff Writer

The Strand-front property housing a landmark Hermosa Beach tavern, as well as an adjacent chunk of Pier Plaza property, will go back up for sale this week - and at a discount, insiders said.

After recently falling out of escrow with a local developer envisioning a hotel for the site of the Mermaid and several other businesses, the properties will hit the market again by Friday with about $1.5 million knocked off their combined asking prices, said the land's broker, Jack Gillespie of South Bay Brokers.

The two properties - a 7,000-square-foot seaside parcel housing the iconic bar, as well as Good Stuff and the Poop Deck; and a 6,900-square-foot chunk facing Pier Plaza that's home to four businesses - first went up for sale for a combined $33.5 million in October, about three months after longtime owner Quentin "Boots" Thelan died.

The land had been in escrow with El Segundo-based Urban Pointe Development and Bancroft Capital of Manhattan Beach since early this year, but plans to build an oceanfront hotel recently stalled, Gillespie said.

"The buyers were very nice and doing very complete due diligence," he said. "They just weren't able to pull things together right now."

The decision to end the escrow was mutual, Gillespie said; Urban Pointe founder Brad Scott did not return a telephone message for comment Friday.

This time around, heirs hope to float the properties as a single listing, rather than two separate offerings, Gillespie said.

"We prefer to have them packaged because we feel it's better ultimately for the city and what can be done, especially with the amount of money tied up with them," he said.

"Because of city regulations and requirements and coastal requirements, it's harder to deal with small pieces of property," Gillespie added.

This time around, owners will shave $2 million off the original $27million asking price for the Strand-front property, but increase the plaza property price from $6.5million to $7 million, Gillespie said.

A hefty estate tax bill was the driving force behind the decision by Thelan's heirs to sell the land - including the wood-paneled, Naugahyde-upholstered Mermaid, which the former Hermosa mayor bought in 1954.

And apparently the tax man is knocking again: a May 31 letter from the Thelan Family Trust to tenants explained that the properties' values were reassessed and taxes were increased by "approximately 1,000" percent, it stated.

"While we do not intend to increase rents to the current market value, we find that we're not able to bear the whole burden of the below-market rents you have enjoyed with Boots," the letter stated.

In some cases, rent will increase by almost 38 percent, effective next month.

The properties have been watched with great interest by real estate buffs, residents, city officials and business owners - and surrounded by rumors - in the eight months since they first hit the market.

Any changes to the property, currently zoned for light-commercial uses, will undoubtedly have a significant effect on Hermosa's landscape.

But any significant alterations to the city's shoreline still appear distant: The letter sent to tenants also reassured the properties' occupants that any buyer would need up to three years to obtain necessary permits even if a sale happened immediately.

Hermosa signature drive gets cutthroat -

 

Accusations include stalking in fight over parking rule affecting the expansion of Baja Sharkeez. 

 

The popular tavern burned down in May.  Decoys and diversions. Punching and spitting. Surveillance and spying.  It could be an action movie, a screwball comedy or a political farce.  Such were the shenanigans apparently under way in Hermosa Beach this week as one resident rallied voters to oppose a city ordinance that eases parking requirements downtown, and supporters of one Pier Plaza business hustled to keep him from succeeding.  Thursday was activist Jim Lissner's deadline to collect signatures from people opposing a new law that exempts Pier Plaza businesses from providing a certain amount of on-site parking if they pay fees to the city -- an ordinance crucial to an expansion plan for popular tavern Baja Sharkeez that burned down in May.  Lissner had 30 days to gather signatures from 10 percent of the city's voters in hopes of triggering a ballot referendum to repeal the law, but the last leg of the drive has been marked by accusations of high jinks, intimidation and violence from both sides. 

 


Carjack suspect pulled out a metal knife or razor and held it to the victim's throat.

Carjack Attempt -

Hermosa Police made an arrest after a man allegedly cut two people with a knife or razor during a failed carjacking on Monday.  The man told the painter “I have a big truck coming through and you need to move your van.”  The man slid over, and the painter hopped in behind the wheel and drove about 10 feet.  Then the man pulled out a metal knife or razor and held it to the painter’s throat saying, “Keep driving or I will kill you,” a police report stated.

 


Regarding Pier Plaza - Ten Years Later . . .What Are The Results?

The result, though, has been an abundance of bars and restaurants that leaves a heavier emphasis on nightlife in town, said Councilman J.R. Reviczky, who voted to create a specific plan years ago.

 

HB Council seeks more control of Pier Plaza - Majority apparently would like to have greater latitude in determining future businesses in the bustling area.  Hermosa Beach city officials hoped for success when they approved plans more than a decade ago to turn lower Pier Avenue into an open-air piazza decked out with palm trees, metal benches and nautical-style lighting.  And they got what they wanted: Pier Plaza today is a hefty sales tax generator for the city and a bustling hot spot filled with families looking for food and sunshine during the day, and young party animals searching for a drink and a good time at night.  But officials now want more control of the thriving downtown's future.


 

 

The date of the AVP tour in Hermosa Beach was moved to the third weekend of May, a full two months earlier than in previous years.

HB AVP Open fees won't change this year - But volleyball event's dates are moving -- to May -- and permit to add more paid seating was just for July.  South Bay beach volleyball fans can count on another year of mostly free admission to the Hermosa Beach Open after all.  The tournament's owners will continue charging admission to a quarter of spectators at this year's tournament, rather than the 90 percent of fans approved last month by the California Coastal Commission, said Dave Williams, market director for the Association of Volleyball Professionals.  The AVP has agreed to charge 25 percent of spectators admission in exchange for moving Hermosa Beach's tournament up a couple of months, said Teresa Henry, South Coast District manager for the Coastal Commission.  Traditionally a July event, this year's tournament is now scheduled for May 17-20 to accommodate a recently added tournament stop in Long Beach.

 AVP "Hermosa Open" Allowed to Charge for Beach Volleyball Seating

 

AVP scores with decision on beach volleyball ticket sales - Coastal panel's ruling on charges in Hermosa Beach could affect Manhattan decisionAssociation of Volleyball Professionals proposed to charge all spectators admission fees at the tournament scheduled for July 20-22.  South Bay free beach advocates were not pleased with the commission's decision. 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AVP may charge admission for spectators on the last three days of the Hermosa Open volleyball tournament this summer. 

 

Full paid seating for Hermosa Open? - The California Coastal Commission next week will discuss whether the AVP may charge admission for all spectators on the concluding three days of the Hermosa Open pro beach volleyball tournament this summer.  The AVP’s application to the Coastal Commission seeks to charge admission for about 10,400 spectators seated at the event.  A three-year contract with the City of Hermosa Beach states that the city will allow the AVP to charge admission at any level granted by the Coastal Commission. 


 

 

Two men suspected of breaking into a Hermosa Beach house and robbing a mother at gunpoint in front of her children.

 

Police capture suspects in Hermosa home invasion - One man suffers a broken leg while running from police officers. Another man is found hidden nearby.  Two men suspected of breaking into a Hermosa Beach house and robbing a mother at gunpoint in front of her children, were captured Tuesday following a chase into Redondo Beach, police said. 


 

 

A Police Department report listed 507 responses by officers in the downtown in 2006, including 354 reported as disturbances.

 

HB Nightspots move to police themselves - Owners of popular downtown nightspots are getting together to “police” themselves and cut down on excessive noise and rowdiness.  A Police Department report listed 507 responses by officers in the downtown in 2006, including 354 reported as disturbances, 42 as loud music, 41 as medical aids, 28 as batteries, 21 as theft, one as rape, one as kidnapping and one as assault. 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HB Zoning change hints at new facilities - Officially speaking, there's nothing in the works for a new high-priced facility like the one that houses both of Manhattan Beach's Police and Fire Departments. Nor are there any plans to construct a new parking structure on land directly adjacent to City Hall.  A proposal aired at last week's meeting of the Planning Commission appears to be laying the groundwork for the city to move in precisely that direction.

Hermosa Beach

About Town

Laker takes cake?

The city prosecutor has declined to file charges after a man accused Los Angeles Laker Kwame Brown of swiping his birthday cake and flinging it at someone in a late-night incident on Hermosa Avenue.

The man had been celebrating his 30th birthday at the Shore restaurant and lounge on Friday, and walked out onto the avenue carrying his single-layer chocolate cake, according to a police report. The birthday boy saw Laker Ronny Turiaf and asked him to pose for a photo with him, and Turiaf did so.

Moments later, the man told police, Brown took the cake from his hands and gave it a toss, then left in a limousine.

The man reported that he saw Laker Lamar Odom emerge from Pedone’s Pizzeria and confronted him about the cake. The man complained that a person, possibly the bodyguard of a Laker, pushed him, but did not injure him. The man reported that Odom told the alleged pusher, “Calm down, he didn’t do anything.”

The man reported the value of the two-foot-square cake at $190. A spokesman for the Lakers was not immediately available.

Injuries follow dispute

At least one broken bone was suffered when four passengers emerging from a “party bus” were struck by a vehicle following a verbal dispute, police said.

According to a preliminary investigation, the incident began early Saturday morning when riders in a double-decker bus heading to downtown Hermosa got in a dispute with four people in a black Jeep Cherokee.

The bus parked in the area of Beach Drive and 11th Street to unload its passengers about 12:30 a.m.  The Cherokee drove by, and it occupants “flipped off” bus passengers, police said.

The Cherokee was driven away only to return, striking four people who exited the bus, police said.  Paramedics treated the injured people at the scene, and according to preliminary police reports, at least one person suffered a broken leg.  The Cherokee later was discovered parked on Valley Drive and the investigation is continuing.

Sand sponsors, Strand sponsors

  The Beach Reporter – January 11, 2007

Hermosa Beach News

Hermosa Beach through the years

This is the first in a three-part look at the 100 years of Hermosa Beach.

When people think of Los Angeles, they think of sun, sand and surf. Though technically part of Los Angeles County, Hermosa Beach has gained a reputation as a unique and distinct beach town with its own personality. Later this week, an event commemorating the 100-year anniversary of the city's incorporation is slated to take place. In light of this, The Beach Reporter will take a look back at the city's history and the changes that have befallen the city and its residents. This piece is the first in an installment that will chronicle some of the more noteworthy events to take place in its 100-year history.

Early years

Prior to its incorporation, Hermosa Beach was part of a 10-mile-long tract of land known as Rancho Sausal Redondo, which translates to “the ranch of the round willow-grove.”

In 1900, Amos Burbank and Eugene Baker, acting on behalf of the Hermosa Beach Land and Water Company, purchased 1,500 acres from the owner of Rancho Sausal Redondo for $35 per acre, or roughly $54,000. The company, which also included two silent partners, Gen. Moses Hazeltine Sherman and E. P. Clark, would go on to make several improvements over the next few years, including a sewer system, wharf, pier and water supply.

Then in July 1906, a petition was prepared for the County Board of Supervisors regarding the potential incorporation of Hermosa Beach. A Los Angeles Times story about the proposal stated that the petition called for the incorporation of the area as a city “of the sixth class” and indicated that at least 550 people resided “within the territory proposed to be incorporated.” Interestingly, the headline for the story read “Newspaper Blunder” and stated that a typographical error in the publication of the official notice required that the petition be redone. Apparently, the proposed name of the city appearing in the notice was incorrectly listed as Wilmington and not Hermosa Beach.

Despite the typo, the city's first election was held later that year on Dec. 24. At that meeting, six men were elected as the city's first trustees - John Q. Tufts, Herman Vetters, John Bunz, Otto Meyer, Benn H. Hiss and Arthur Jones. In addition to selecting the city's officers, residents voted to proceed with incorporation, with 24 in favor and 23 against. The city's official charter was issued by the state soon thereafter on Jan. 14, 1907.

According to “The Early History of Hermosa Beach,” by Fern Rhein, the city subsequently acquired ownership of its two-mile stretch of coastline from the Hermosa Beach Land and Water Company, excluding 210 feet on either side of the pier. The deed stated that it was to be held “in perpetuity as a beach playground, free from commerce, and for the benefit of not only the residents of Hermosa, but also for the sea lovers of Southern California.”

In December 1907, the young town suffered a minor setback, losing the use of its pier to the high tide. The “recreation pier,” an all-wood structure measuring 24 feet wide, was built three years earlier at a cost of $8,000.

In 1908, the young municipality fought off an attempt to disincorporate it, as well as several other proposals to merge the city with its neighbor to the south, Redondo Beach.

Seaside resort

In 1912, the city's trustees agreed to issue bonds worth approximately $60,000 to finance the construction of a new pier. The city's second pier was completed in 1913 and officially opened in 1914. It helped Hermosa Beach continue its reputation as a seaside resort.

Despite these improvements, the city did not experience as large a growth spurt as did its neighbor to the south, Redondo Beach. Some believed the reason was that local law forbade the use of property for the sale of “spirituous liquors.” It was not until the repeal of prohibition in 1933 that Hermosa Beach joined the ranks of other “wet” cities, allowing alcohol to be served at public establishments.

The primary attraction for many of the town's visitors, aside from the beach, was the Hermosa Biltmore Hotel, formerly known as the Surf and Sand Club. Built in the late 1920s, the hotel gave vacationers from all across Southern California a place to stay and enjoy the town. In 1932, the hotel served as the setting for a banquet honoring Olympic athletes from India.

The city's growth was aided by the Pacific Electric Red Car, which provided residents from other areas a cheap and efficient means of transportation to get to the South Bay. The trains ran up until 1939 when service was discontinued. The tracks ran along what is now Hermosa Avenue and were eventually pulled out in 1941.

Coming soon

In the next installment, The Beach Reporter will look at Hermosa Beach post-World War II and beyond.

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hermosa Beach News

Web sites keep residents in the loop

In addition to a wide assortment of grass-roots activists and civic organizations, Hermosa Beach also maintains a strong presence in cyberspace. The following Web sites provide residents with a unique blend of information about current events and the news of the day.

www.HBArtWalk.com/

The official site of the Hermosa Beach Art Walk, hbartwalk.com provides updates and information about the city's annual fine arts festival.

 

The site's founder, Ken Klade, also owns and operates a local business known as the Klade Gallery.

www.Hbneighborhood.org/

 

The Neighborhood Association's Web site focuses primarily on news of the day and local crime.

 

The site was started by former City Council candidate Al Benson and provides visitors with a plethora of information about local government meetings, current events and police statistics.

 

The site also includes a forum for people to post comments about anything at all, which leads to a variety of interesting and informative discussions.

www.SaferHermosaBeach.com/

This site is the home of the Hermosa Beach Neighborhood Watch. Though it has a similar name to that of the Neighborhood Association, the Neighborhood Watch is another civic organization that focuses primarily on crime prevention.

 

Its founders are Kelly Kovac-Reedy, Tracy Hopkins and Nancy Amato, who were originally involved with Hermosa MOMS. It was formed partly in response to the perceived lack of government response following Hurricane Katrina. Residents interested in emergency preparedness and public safety will find relevant information at this site.

www.KilltheGoose.com/

 

Run by local resident Jim Lissner, the site is a blend of interesting facts and tidbits that primarily focuses on issues of local government. Lissner, a regular at various council and commission meetings, has been critical of the overwhelming use of city resources to police the pier plaza.

Lissner's site is a play on the ancient fable involving the goose that laid the golden egg. The implication is that local officials have looked to short-term gains in the city's business community instead of benefiting the community as a whole.

www.WifiHermosaBeach.com/

This site was set up to chronicle the emergence of the city's experiment with free wireless Internet service. It provides instructions for those nontech-savvy residents who may have trouble connecting to the city's wireless network, including a support forum complete with a message board to exchange messages with fellow residents.

www.TheAesthetic.com/  

TheAesthetic.com describes itself as “sort of a running dialogue” on news and events in the area. Created by Hermosa Beach native Garrison Frost, the site includes a unique perspective on current events not only within the confines of Hermosa Beach, but across the entire South Bay.

 

Frost, who at one time served as the editor of this publication, now lives in Lomita.

www.HermosaBeachHistoricalSociety.org/

Anyone interested in information about Hermosa Beach's history should look no further than the Historical Society's Web site, which includes pictures and stories about the past. Information is also available at the site regarding the current renovation of the city's museum, which is expected to reach completion prior to the Centennial Celebration early next year.

www.Hermosa100.com/

In conjunction with the city's Centennial Celebration, the city of Hermosa Beach created Hermosa100.com, a site to provide residents with the latest news and information about the historical event.

www.Tbrnews.com/

The online home of The Beach Reporter provides weekly content found in the newspaper edition plus an archive of content from past issues.

www.HermosaWave.net/

This site serves as a portal for residents of Hermosa Beach to find general information and as a good starting point for new residents of the area.

 

Live shots from the local webcams are visible in the upper left corner of the site, as are links to many of the most popular sites about Hermosa Beach.

www.WatchtheWater.org/

The County of Los Angeles Lifeguard Division's online offering can be found at watchthewater.org.

 

The site provides real-time information from the county's many beaches, as well as pictures from webcams found across the South Bay. A Flash animation about the opening of the lifeguard facility is also available for visitors, who can watch up close the work behind the new facility located next to the Hermosa Beach Pier.

 

Other information is also available like surf conditions, water temperature and wind conditions.

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hermosa Beach News

HB City Council wrap

Hermosa Pavilion

A car wash, restaurant and wine-tasting area located in the multiuse facility at 1601 Pacific Coast Highway were all approved by the City Council Tuesday night.

The council's decision was the culmination of months of navigating through the city's planning bureaucracy by Pavilion owner Gene Shook, who stated that he was “pleased” with the outcome following Tuesday night's meeting.

Clark Building

 

The council awarded a contract worth approximately $17,056 to Everlast Painting Company to refurbish the Clark Building. According to a city staff report, the contract will include painting the interior of the auditorium, refinishing the wood floor and minor repairs to the wood floor.

The contract was awarded following an amendment by Councilman Pete Tucker to include refurbishing the building's doors so that they may provide better protection from the weather and not jeopardize any future work done on the wood floors.

More slurry seals

The council approved a staff recommendation to include Hermosa and Monterey avenues in a contract to perform slurry seal work within Hermosa Beach. The contractor, Cypress-based Pavement Coatings Company, was initially awarded a contract on Nov. 14 to perform slurry sealing along Aviation Boulevard and Prospect Avenue. That contract was worth $148,287. Tuesday's decision will cost an extra $233,625 and will see the city use unspent funds received under Prop. 42.

A staff report indicated that the primary reason for performing the work was due to the competitive nature of securing funds under Prop. 1A, which was recently approved by the voters of California.

“I can see that this is kind of a last-minute thing, this project, evidently is to make sure that we qualify for some other money,” said local resident Jim Lissner. “It doesn't seem like the streets that are targeted for the slurry sealing are in bad shape at all compared to some of the other streets in town, and it's a big hunk of money.”

City Manager Steve Burrell responded to Lissner's concerns and explained why the city was moving so quickly to spend such a sizable amount of money.

“As you know with the passage of the propositions in November there's going to be some extra money available,” said City Manager Steve Burrell. “A couple of the programs are actually competitive, but what they want to do is see how you've committed your Prop. 42 funds and you're actually spending money on things like this.”

Consent items

The council approved an agreement with the county of Los Angeles to maintain 34 “trash excluders” that are to be installed at catch basin openings along Hermosa Avenue. Under the agreement, county officials will purchase and install the devices, after which the city will maintain them.

The council also approved the purchase of approximately $8,699 worth of ammunition for the Police Department. The city received only one bid from a company in Anaheim following the issuance of a request for proposals.

Hermosa Beach News

Police, fire chiefs go 1-on-1 with community

Local residents got a chance to meet the heads of both of the city's public safety agencies earlier this week at an event titled “Meet the Chiefs.” The forum was sponsored by the Hermosa Beach Neighborhood Watch, a civic organization dedicated to raising awareness within the community about crime prevention.

The event, which was held twice on Monday to allow the greatest number of residents to attend the meeting, saw both Police Chief Greg Savelli and Fire Chief Russell Tingley speak about public safety over the holiday season. The event was the first of its kind since Savelli took the reins of the department in July and gave the community an opportunity to speak with the Marin County native in an informal setting.

Given the time of day and the number of residents still at work, Neighborhood Watch co-founder Tracy Hopkins was happy to see several residents attend the noon forum.  “I find that you can get good conversation with both intimate smaller groups and larger groups so I was happy with today's noon meeting and the interaction that occurred,” said Hopkins.

 

After opening remarks from Neighborhood Watch co-founder Kelly Kovac-Reedy, Savelli and Tingley gave brief introductions to the audience and provided tips on holiday safety.

In July, officers were dispatched to the bar in response to a kidnapping report.   It went on to state that these incidents “involve multiple violations of law, including the California Penal Code, the Hermosa Beach Municipal Code, the Fire Code, as well as the Conditional Use Permit issued by the city to the business.”   Read All of this News Story

Hermosa Beach News

HB City Council wrap

Pay raise - Instead of the 100-percent raise requested by Councilman Michael Keegan, the council agreed to a raise from $300 per month to $530 per month. The vote was 3-2 in favor of the measure, with Edgerton and Tucker dissenting.

“I think this 100-percent raise is way out of order,” said Tucker.

Neighborhood brawl - Local resident Eric Conrad addressed the council about an incident that occurred near his house at the intersection of Eighth Street and Ardmore Avenue. According to Conrad, a crowd of approximately 20 people chased an individual down his street sometime last week, engaging in a physical altercation. After he was “beat unconscious,” the crowd fled after being alerted to the presence of police officers. The victim was allegedly driven away by acquaintances while still unconscious.

Police Chief Greg Savelli addressed residents' concerns. He stated that the department's response time was approximately two minutes and 20 seconds. According to Savelli, the incident arose from a neighborhood party. “My plan is to talk to that homeowner,” said Savelli.
