EasyReader: Boating center in question

Redondo Beach Boating Center in Question with Chevron's use of Mole B facility down at King Harboor, EasyReader.com - Jim Caldwell, Redondo Beach firefighet

The Redondo Beach City Council voted  Tuesday to approve a $2.4 million agreement to allow  Chevron Oil temporary  use of Mole B in King Harbor  for offloading six coking drums, which the oil company will transport to its El Segundo refinery. However, members of the boating community expressed concern that the agreement might jeopardize funding for an educational boating center, which the city had previously approved.

The agreement  specifies that Chevron’s money will be used “exclusively for the design and construction of the City portion of the Mole B Master Plan.”

Mark Hansen from the King Harbor Boater’s Advisory Panel and King Harbor Marina owner Sean Guthrie questioned the agreement’s restriction of the funds to the “city” portion of Mole B.

The Mole B plan calls for the boating center to be built, not on city property, but on a portion of Guthrie’s leasehold, adjacent to mole B, in exchange for which Guthrie would be allotted parking spaces on Mole B.
