As expected, Redondo Beach's Planning Commission OK'd two four-story hotels, a Marriott and Hilton Garden Inn, as well as an 154-spot recreational vehicle storage site for a site near the 405 Freeway, reports the Daily Breeze. Meanwhile, meet the opposition, the so-called "Slow Growth" group. It's like the slow food movement, but for desert-hued development. Via the Breeze: "In letters to the city, slow-growth activist Jim Light said the plan requires further review - a position shared by the Centinela Valley Union High School District. The district's attorney, Stan Barankiewicz, argued Thursday that Redondo Beach has not spent enough time analyzing how additional traffic from the hotels could affect access to Lawndale High School and the district's administrative offices on Inglewood, north of Marine." There's talk of an appeal for the development, the second recent one proposed for Redondo Beach (the other is a project near South Bay Galleria).
