    The residents on 10th Street, and the surrounding impacted area, have opposed this proposed development since it's inception. Many of us have now attended multiple Planning Commission meetings regarding this proposal; and submitted written commentary. This issue has been voted down every time during the Planning Commission sessions.

    Mow, we are forced to attend a City Council session reviewing this Item? Why?

    The main issue at hand is the request to allow a Variance to the Parking Requirements. There is no valid reason for this City to be granting any more of these types of Variances!

    Parking is, and has been for some time, a major issue, and this10th Street area is one of the most impacted areas of Hermosa Beach. We are consistently beset by the events that this city insists on ramming down our throats; all of which regularly and severely intrude on our lives!

    So, how about for a change, you do what you were elected to do; Shepherd, Protect, and Nurture the City of Hermosa Beac and the residents that make this place our home! Quit selling us out to every Special Interest group that shows up! We do not need Developers that refuse to conform to our regulations! We do not need to accept "Fees in lieu of Compliance"!

    Regards
