We have been working to better Manhattan Beach our community for the past 71 years.
Some our victories have included obtaining legislation passed in Congress that allowed our community to plan the best use for the Coast Guard Quentin Street property which led to the building of Goldstein High School.
We fought for the installation of traffic lights at busy traffic intersections in Manhattan Beach. We are continuing that fight on Oriental Blvd. and Irwin St. We are also arguing for the normalization of the traffic light on Ocean Ave. and Oriental. After the recent death on Oriental Blvd. we have renewed our determination to make Oriental Blvd. safe for you and the many visitors to our community.
In 1970 we formed and organized Beachside Neighborhood Patrol to ensure the security of our neighborhood. Yes, that is 38 years of keeping you safe. We will not only continue but will improve this service at a reasonable cost to you.
We applied for and were given grants to beautify Oriental Blvd and remove graffiti.
The Manhattan Beach Community Group has worked closely with the 61st Police Precinct this summer to increase uniform and plain clothes police in our community. This effort has been incredibly successful in apprehending those foolish to think they can get away with committing crimes in our community.
We advocated for fixing the seawall along Shore Blvd. and the Ocean Ave. footbridge.
We are addressing the parking situation.
We are addressing the environmental issues of today and formulating a plan for our community to go green in tune with Mayor Bloomberg’s plan.
We stand firm in supporting current zoning regulations to maintain the beauty and character of Manhattan Beach. We pledge to you to fight for space and light. We oppose any other group that wants to make Manhattan Beach into a special district which will destroy the spacious beauty of our community.
We are a democratic organization with elected officers and a constitution. All are invited to attend our meetings and participate.
