Mayor Jeff Duclos will hold a free public meeting to discuss bridges that would span Pacific Coast Highway in Hermosa Beach.
"A Bridge Across PCH: Let's talk about it" is the subject of a one-hour meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 24, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Hermosa Beach Community Center on Pier Avenue.
Duclos says he hopes to see if there is enough interest in the concept to develop a preliminary plan that can be given to the city with the hope the city can then move toward building at least one bridge.
"I have ideas, but I am no expert," wrote Duclos in an email. "I'm hoping to enlist the city's greatest resource -- the smart and talented people who live here -- to finally elevate this discussion to the next level."
Participants will include Steve Lantz, a public transportation project development specialist and consultant with the South Bay Council of Governments; Gina Overholt, a grant writer with 14 years of experience submitting major funding proposals for public sector projects including $1 million for Hermosa Beach; Brian Hannegan, a senior Designer with the award-winning RRM Design and specialist in urban architecture, and Julian Katz, retired civil engineer and public works commissioner who will moderate the session.
Questions and/or RSVPs can be sent via email.
