Mayor Initiates Public Dialogue on Bridges Spanning PCH

Mayor Jeff Duclos has gathered some specialists to lead a dialogue on whether or not the city should have bridges that span the busy Pacific Coast Highway. He wants public input.

Mayor Initiates Public Dialogue on Bridges Spanning PCH

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.
