Redondo Beach : Condos Survive Veto

The City Council unanimously overrode a veto Tuesday by Mayor Barbara Doerr and gave final approval to a 42-unit condominium project on the southeast corner of Avenue G and Palos Verdes Boulevard.

The approval came after the council determined that a public hearing Feb. 11 gave residents a fair opportunity to express concerns over parking, traffic and density in the area. One resident, Barbara Lynn Johnson, objected to the hearing, saying she had been misled as to what information could be introduced to the council.

The project will consist of nine Spanish-style buildings averaging 30 feet in height. Each will house between three and seven condominium units.

The units will have three bedrooms and two parking spaces in an attached garage. As part of a compromise reached during Planning Commission hearings, 37 visitor parking spaces will be provided.

Doerr, who also vetoed the council's tentative approval of the project last month, favored one guest parking space for each unit--42 spaces.
