Weekly News Roundup – Nov. 11, 2013

USS Iowa Sees Smaller Turnout at Veterans Appreciation Festival
About 3,500 to 4,000 veterans, active military members and their families gathered on the USS Iowa on Saturday for the historic battleship’s second annual Veterans Appreciation Festival, according to the Pacific Battleship Center. The day featured speakers, free ship tours, wartime music, food trucks, kids activities and a veterans resource center with career, housing and health resources. Last year’s event saw 10,000 attendees.

Crack Uncovered at White Point Landslide Site
A new crack was discovered eight feet underground at the site of the White Point landslide last week, prompting residents who don’t want to see Paseo del Mar reconnected to start a petition. A counter petition was also started, calling for the city to stick to the $28.8 million plan approved by the White Point Landslide Advisory Committee last month to rebuild the road with a retaining wall.

Councilman Joe Buscaino said the newly discovered crack is being investigated by the Bureau of Engineering and that it will not affect the ongoing $9.14 million cleanup and stabilization project at the site. Results of the investigation should be announced this week. Buscaino stands by the community advisory committee’s desire to rebuild the road.

‘Criminal Minds’ Won’t Film in San Pedro Anymore
Citing hecklers and business owners taking advantage of payouts, film production representatives told board members of the Downtown Historic Waterfront District (aka PBID) last week that CBS will no longer film the highly-rated drama, Criminal Minds, in San Pedro, and that other shows may follow suit if something isn’t done.

FilmL.A., the city’s filming department, will start a committee with PBID to address and prevent recurring issues that are turning production companies away from downtown San Pedro.

AltaSea Signs 50-Year Lease with Port
The Board of Harbor Commissioners approved a 50-year lease on Thursday with Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors Inc. and AltaSea, a more than 35-acre state-of-the-art marine research center planned for San Pedro’s outer harbor.

Plans for the $500 million project, formerly known as City Dock No. 1, were unveiled in June and should take 15 to 20 years to complete, but Phase 1 should be completed in five years.

The meeting on Thursday was the last for outgoing Port Executive Director Geraldine Knatz, who is being replaced by interim director and City Engineer Gary Lee Moore.
