- The Manhattan Village shopping center enhancement project is the subject of the Tuesday night City Council meeting beginning at 6 p.m. in council chambers at 1400 Highland Ave. The meeting is a continued public hearing to consider certification of a final Environmental Impact Report and approval of a master use permit amendment, height variance and master sign program/exception for the project at 2600 through 3600 Sepulveda Blvd. and 1220 Rosecrans Ave.
- The Planning Commission will once again look to approve a master use permit extension for an applicant who's already had three extensions approved on August 25, 2010, July 27, 2011, and September 12, 2012, according to the meeting agenda. The 1008 Investment Group, LLC would like to build a 25,350-square-foot medical and retail use building that includes 22,970 square feet of medical office condominiums, a 665-square-foot pharmacy and a 1,715-square-foot coffee shop with an outdoor patio area from 1000-1008 Sepulveda Blvd. Their initial three-year permit was issued in July 2007. The extension renewal fee is $2,195, according to a letter from the investors' managing member. City staff recommends the commission approve the extension. The Planning Commission meeting will be held Wednesday beginning at 6:30 p.m. in council chambers, 1400 Highland Ave. The meeting is webcast live.
- The Manhattan Beach Education Foundation will hold its monthly board meeting Tuesday from 7-9 p.m. at 325 S. Peck Ave. in the district's administration building. The public is welcome to attend.
