Redondo Beach Chamber of Commerce Representing the Interests of Business With Government 2019 Strategic Initiatives
1. Infrastructure The Redondo Beach Chamber of Commerce will continue to support policies that attract investment in our community including the creation of available office space, as well as housing stock for the workforce of Redondo Beach’s businesses. We will support funding to improve the transportation infrastructure and the movement of goods throughout our region. We will continue to advocate for improvements to public transit to and from Redondo Beach, such as the Green Line Extension, as well as Transient Oriented Development that promotes the use of our public transportation. We will champion the modernization of LAX, and infrastructure improvements to the port complexes in the San Pedro Bay. The Chamber will also support improvements to infrastructure that provide affordable and reliable access to water, delta initiative, energy, and other essential services such as broadband. 2. Aerospace The Redondo Beach Chamber of Commerce will work to support legislation that ensures keeping aerospace jobs in the South Bay. The Chamber will continue to be a champion for the Los Angeles Air Force Base (LAAFB) and collaborate with the South Bay Aerospace Alliance (SBAA) and other regional partners to support the industry here in the South Bay. The Chamber will fight to make sure that potential spending cuts do not have negative impacts on our local aerospace companies that work to fulfill national defense contracts. 3. Revitalization of Commercial Corridors The Redondo Beach Chamber of Commerce will support efforts to improve our commercial corridors and promote building our local economy. We will advocate for the modernization of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) to improve land use development projects in Redondo Beach. The Chamber will also promote programs to help minimize homelessness, create affordable housing, and support programs that help reduce mental health problems. We will support efforts to update and enhance all commercial areas throughout the city. 4. Business Retention and Attraction The Redondo Beach Chamber of Commerce will work with city hall to ensure that Redondo Beach has the friendliest business climate possible. We will advocate for public policies at the local, state, and federal levels that promote and incentivize businesses to thrive, grow and flourish. We will actively oppose public policies that are overly burdensome and onerous on the small business owners of Redondo Beach including taxation, labor & wage laws, and litigation abuse. The Chamber will support policies that promotes tourism, which helps support many of our local small businesses and grow our local economy.
5. Workforce Development The Redondo Beach Chamber of Commerce will continue to promote Career Technical Training and Workforce Development to ensure we have a skilled workforce for critical industries such as Healthcare, Advanced Manufacturing, Construction and Transportation. The Chamber will partner with our local community colleges and the Workforce Investment Board to bring collaboration between the business and vocational training centers.
