Protest Period Extended for "Clean Water" Measure


Following the conclusion of the Clean Water, Clean Beaches Measure Public Hearing and the testimony of hundreds of concerned stakeholders, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved Supervisor Knabe's motion to allow for more time for protesting the proposed parcel tax. The County Board of Supervisors continued to hear complaints from residents, businesses, school districts, churches and non-profits that this process has not been open and transparent. Even as the Board was hearing testimonies at the public hearing, Supervisor Knabe's office was receiving emails and phone calls from residents asking where they could get a protest form and how they could protest the measure.

Belmont Pier's Artificial Reef Project
Project Will Restore Fish Habitat and Encourage Greater Diversity 

The Montrose Settlements Restoration Program (MSRP) is proposing to build seven artificial reef modules made of quarry rock from Catalina Island near the Belmont Pier. This will discourage the White Croaker, the most plentiful fish in the area, from living along the contaminated sandy bottom habitat in the vicinity of the pier, and will eventually attract a greater diversity of fish that will be safer to eat and fisherman will be able to catch them directly from the pier.
