Back To School Supply Drive

The Redondo Beach Police Department’s Domestic Violence Victims Advocacy Program is sponsoring its third annual Back to School Supply Drive.

The Domestic Violence Victims Advocacy Program provides help and support to victims and families experience domestic violence, from the first call to police through court hearings and beyond. The supply drive is intended to offer relief to students and families in need as the school year approaches.

City releases vehicle-share, parks surveys

The City of Redondo Beach, in partnership with the South Bay Cities Council of Government, is looking for resident participation in a survey to develop rules and regulations regarding bike and scooter share programs.

Bikeshare programs have evolved from check-out and docking models, popularized in 2010, to those allowing users to unlock free-standing bikes using smartphone applications. Similar electric scooter apps have become popular throughout LA County and the Beach Cities, allowing for electric-powered scooters to be locked and unlocked via app.

City officials hope that the survey will help develop a plan to implement and regulate bike and scooter share programs throughout the city and the region.

To access the survey, visit surveymonkey.com/r/RBbikeshareSurvey.

Redondo has also released a separate survey to determine the future of the city’s parks and open space plan, It will be reviewed at a future meeting of the Redondo Beach General Plan Advisory Committee meeting.

The survey asks users to offer opinions and recommendations on the city’s current park and open space inventory and takes suggestions as to what direction users would like the city to take in the future.

The General Plan Advisory Committee will then take those user responses and formulate recommendations to the City Council to use in shaping an update to the city’s existing General Plan, which sets land-use rules throughout Redondo Beach.

To take that survey, visit www.surveymonkey.com/RedondoParksSurvey.
