This month, the City launched its new, enhanced, and more accessible website at a new address, HermosaBeach.gov. The new site features easier navigation and an updated design. The site reduces the number of clicks needed to reach the most frequently used information. “City staff worked hard to analyze past usage of the City’s website and build the new one to make the most frequently searched information readily available,” said Mayor Stacey Armato. Like any website, the City will be updating and improving the site as we get public feedback and see how the new site is used. The new address, HermosaBeach.gov, reflects the addresses used for cities and government entities. Users visiting the old address, HermosaBch.org, will be automatically redirected to the new site.
North School is under construction and scheduled to open in January 2021. The City and School District will publish a joint Neighborhood Transportation Management Plan before North School opens, and the renovation of View and Valley schools, which the City supports, are scheduled to follow the opening of North School. Together, these schools will provide Hermosa with 21st century learning environments.
Streets and sewers are a priority. Justin helped move street and sewer repairs forward, starting with the extensive renovation of north Hermosa Ave in 2019 and continuing with priority renovations to streets and sewers in northeast Hermosa (between Prospect and Harper), south Hermosa, and citywide by encouraging the Public Works Department to complete the street and sewer master plans that the City is now using to prioritize street and sewer repairs that can be completed simultaneously, minimizing cost and disruption and maximizing the durability of the street repairs.
