San Pedro — A 3 feet in diameter crack was found at the White Point landslide near a home, Nov. 4. The discovery led to a work stoppage.

The Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council Landslide Committee discussed the issue that evening and decided to contact the Bureau of Engineering to discuss resident safety.

On Nov. 5, Councilman Joe Buscaino issued a statement on his website supporting the recommendation from the White Point Landslide Advisory Committee to restore the roadway with a retaining wall to maximize the safety and stability of the area.

On Nov. 13, the committee will be requesting that a motion be added to the Nov. 18 general meeting to recommend the closure of that section of Paseo del Mar to address traffic and public safety concerns.

A petition is being circulated to defund and abandon Paseo del Mar stating that the money would be better spent elsewhere. Another  petition to reconstruct Paseo del Mar also is being circulated.
