More on Redondo Parking...

As Tony said...the hand launch dock will be pulled out of the water on December 5th and we'll have to use the hoist dock to hand launch. The guys at the hoist will require you to fill out a one time liability form to get it on record. There will be no fee to launch...the guys ask that you have your act together and not linger too long on the dock as it can get pretty busy there with the skiffs using the hoist and the commercial boats unloading occasionally. If you are launching a Hobie PA or a long kayak you may want to make sure you have some help as that narrow walkway and the turn at the gate entrance can be a little challenging.

OK...NOW SOME PARKING RATE INFO...
I contacted Redondo Mayor Bill Brand and he passed my letter on to the Harbor Commissioner Steven Proud...Here is Steven's reply and suggestion...

"As far as I know - this has not been a topic of discussion with the Harbor Commission or the City Council.

By way of background - the parking rate for the marina parking lot is $2 per hour which is consistent with the other two municipal lots in the waterfront – so the rate is being applied correctly. As we continue to transition the RBM parking lot from Decron to a municipal operation – we are looking to phase out discounts and validations – to be consistent with other operations in the City. Since we do not offer discounted public parking anywhere else in the City that I am aware of – offering it in the marina could be a challenge.

Stephen"

"I suggest rounding up all the anglers and sup folks you can and show up to a Harbor Commission meeting and speak under non-agenda items asking them to make a recommendation to the Council to reinstate the discount. I'm pretty certain they will make that recommendation if you all show-up. Then the Council will hear it and make the change.

Sounds like a great suggestion. Bring a bunch of folks to the non-agenda item time and let them know you're concern. A signed petition by folks who can't be there would help too.

I'LL FIND OUT THE REDONDO BEACH HARBOR COMMISSION MEETING SCHEDULE AND I'LL POST IT UP HERE...BUT I NEED TO KNOW IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED IN GATHERING SIGNATURES FOR A PETITION AND IF YOU'LL SHOW UP AT A MEETING WITH ME...????
