Public comments invited for re-development in Hermosa Beach

August 28, 2007

Public engagement on improvements in architecture, landscaping, traffic, parking and business opportunities on Pier Avenue in Hermosa Beach (U.S.A.) is being encouraged.

A committee has been established, the Upper Pier Avenue Committee (UPAC), and their regular monthly meetings are open to the public.

In the coming months, the UPAC will highlight one functional area per month for extended dialogue.  The community is encouraged to attend discussions on parking and circulation (September 2007), land use & zoning (October 2007), and business development (November 2007).

ICLEI’s Local Agenda 21 (LA21) Campaign promotes a participatory, long-term, strategic planning process that supports local governance by identifying local sustainability priorities and mobilizing local governments and their citizens to implement long-term action plans that address these sustainable priorities. Using the LA21 approach of participatory sustainable development planning, ICLEI aims to assist local

authorities to move beyond general sustainable development planning and to apply this approach in tackling areas of priority concern. For more information, please visit www.iclei.org/la21.

Hermosa Beach is one of 204 local governments in the U.S.A. that are currently Members of ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability.  For more information on ICLEI and its activities in the U.S.A., please visit www.iclei.org/usa.
