Initiative to Rezone AES Property - A Win Win for Redondo Beach For decades, the major political argument in Redondo Beach
has been “What do we do with the power-plant?” Through all of the efforts of
Heart of the City, and Measure A, nothing has passed a vote of the people to
change the use of the property currently owned and operated by AES. This time
that might change.
In the past, one of the biggest issues has been the
sentiments of the property owner regarding what others have tried to tell them
they can use their land for. This time it is AES, the property owner, leading
the charge to rezone the property turning into a mixture of residential, mixed
use, and open space known as the Harbor Village Plan. The willingness of AES
may be the biggest reason this initiative could pass, as well as the formal
support of the chamber and city council.
