EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The City of Redondo Beach is in the middle of a planning effort to establish a framework plan to improve and enhance various public amenities within the City’s waterfront, commonly referred to as King Harbor. The public amenities that exist in the waterfront today were developed in a piecemeal fashion over many years and they lack the functionality necessary to provide a first-rate resident and visitor experience. Understanding that the various public amenities are interrelated and recognizing that these amenities set the framework for other public and commercial activities within the Waterfront, the City has started the process of creating a comprehensive plan for the waterfront.

 

One specific element of the amenities plan is to create an educational facility. Staff has invited Julie Coll to present an oral report at the Commission hearing regarding potential ideas for such an educational facility with an opportunity to field questions/comments from the Commission. Julie Coll co-founded the King Harbor Boating Foundation in 2012 with fellow co-founder Mark Hansen. The goal of the foundation is to educate the community about the ocean environment by having the community actively engage with nature out on the water.
