    Dear Hermosa Beach City Council & Planning Commission,

    The amazing Cypress Arts District has been building for years, but now presents the opportunity for the city to say "Yes" to allow it to blossom. The value and upsides are immense - arts are for families, art is missing in our schools, art is therapeutic, art is engaging and art is fun - so yes, expect a lot of fun, music, entertainment, education, inspiration, imagination and energy. This model can be seen in many areas where it has created more vibrant, culturally-rich neighborhoods that help lift city and business revenue and property values - from a highly desired commerce-driven audience. The ordinance clearly requires all events it to be managed properly, with parking addressed, permits acquired, and end-times honored.

    Let something great happen here that can bring life, culture, history, unity and more art to our community. City ordinances are always change-able, but opportunities like this don't come along that often.

    Thank you. -Kent Land, Redondo Beach

    My husband Skip and I have been supporters of Shockboxx and Resin from the very beginning. We love that we can walk to Cypress Street. It is an alternative to the craziness of downtown, we appreciate the art, we have bought several pieces and enjoy associating with like minded neighbors at events not necessarily built around alcohol. We are in full support of having more interesting music and arts events in this eclectic area.

    I am an artist who has shown many times on Cypress, the businesses here are doing an amazing work promoting the arts and bringing like minded people together. It would be a shame to lose this, it benefits the community and educates on art.

    Showing my support! The arts are often underestimated, but Cypress has really blossomed over the past few years. It would be a shame to lose this source of thought provoking entertainment and culture in Hermosa Beach. Keep it alive!

    This is such an amazing opportunity to become a unique, magnetic art center - much like Bergamont Station in Santa Monica. I'm an artist from Encino who showed on Cypress, and I'd do it again. Embrace this. I'm sure the bars and restaurants in Hermosa that will host the art patrons before and after shows will love you.

    The artist district at Cypress is such an improvement to the city. Supporting not only artists making a living as working artists, but it helps the entire community as a whole.

    Having these art events allow the local economy to grow, it sparks creativity and innovation, and improve our well-being.

    Thank you so much for your consideration.

    The original request for this zoning change was through a letter to the city council. This letter was signed by four business owners in the Cypress area. Considering that this represents about 10% of the businesses in the area, further study of the area businesses and building owners may be needed before Planning commission makes a zoning change recommendation. Silence does not equal support. One study session and neighborhood walk does not seem to be adequate to recommend such a change.

    I am an artist that lives in the Southbay and regularly shows work in the Cypress galleries. I believe these events are not only bringing people together, they are showcasing the artistic culture of Hermosa Beach to a larger audience. This is a prime moment to improve the city in a positive way. So anything that could be done to remove the roadblocks to these events would be greatly appreciated.

    The creative studios and galleries opening up on Cypress are a bright light for the community and a powerful source for promoting art within Hermosa Beach. I'm a full-time working artist who lives here in Hermosa, and I can't tell you how warmly received these showings and our presence in general has been. People literally stop me on the street to say how wonderful it is to have art here now. Please strongly consider new zoning and permit laws that will allow this good work in the community to continue! Thank you for the consideration.
