Odds and Ends 153
I ran across a video of some fellas inside on of the abandoned units at Ponte Vista at San Pedro. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVLR2HDyVIs.
The taping was done at night. It is very difficult to maintain security in such a large area at night. The tape was uploaded onto YouTube on October 16, 2009.
The Southbay Association of Chambers of Commerce is holding its installation luncheon on February 17, 2010.
Ponte Vista is listed as one of the sponsors of the events. It seems that the Outreach Team and developers are ratcheting up the processes and programs that should lead to an unveiling of their newest plans for the development and possibly the publication of the new Environmental Impact Report for community review.
Work is continuing on all five new eateries with Amalfitano's Bakery, Denny's, and Pavich's seemingly having more work done on them as opposed to Asaka Grill and Saladish.
The newest appendix for the Marymount College Facilities Expansion Project is currently offered for review.
The new appendix details changes in the expansion of the athletic facilities at Palos Verdes Drive East campus and has consideration concerning the College's application to become a four-year institution.
What is very important to learn about with this project is that if the college is granted the ability to offer four-year programs, then traffic congestion along Western Avenue will be increased in the future and this particular increase was not anticipated with the project before the college's administration applied to have the school become a four-year college.
This should be studied along with all traffic issues associated with Ponte Vista and Western Avenue no matter what side of any discussions as to the number of units that could be successful at Ponte Vista you have.
The cleanup of the old site along Gaffey Street continues. It is still expected that up to 134-patio units might still be built on the site.
