Odds and Ends 29

Some "Odds and Ends" are longer than others. This is one of the others.

Bob is helping to fund the Tri-Arts Festival in downtown San Pedro this weekend. I know that there will be at least one R1 petition gathering location in the vicinity. If you haven't signed the R1 petition, you should be able to find out where it is, if you know a member of the Rudderless Steering Committee of R Neighborhoods Are 1.

The Rudderless Steering Committee continues to meet and I will update some of the goings on, with the next "Odds and Ends".

I am still working on the multi-part posts dealing why many folks feel that having a 1,950-unit condominium project built in a town that already has terrible traffic on Western Avenue. If you would like to suggest reasons other than the ones I am thinking and writing about, I would appreciate learning those reasons and pondering on them.

Look for more parts coming up.

There are over 11,000 signatures now on the R1 petitions and there is still no reason to stop collecting signatures, whenever and wherever possible.

We are finding that most of the great folks who shop at local grocery stores have signed the petition so we are considering other places to collect signatures. Any suggestions?

Research and learning are continuing on the part of volunteers helping R Neighborhoods Are 1 and education has been, is being, and will continue to be provided, concerning the issues surrounding Ponte Vista at San Pedro. Nothing on the opposition side has stopped and we are keeping our eyes and ears open.

The City of Rancho Palos Verdes will be electing members to fill three seats on the City Council. We are trying to have a candidates' forum, hopefully at Crestwood Elementary School, sometime in the second half of October. More information to follow once we have a date confirmed.

Three incumbents are running for reelection and there are two other candidates seeking to capture two of the seats in the election.

I will post information about the candidates and/or how to find out more about them on this blog.
