Lazy Acres fruition

The vision for the opening of Lazy Acres Market began about five years ago. I meet Kevin Davis at a conference in Sacramento and I introduced myself and at that time I was the mayor of Hermosa Beach. Mr. Davis immediately said that he always want a market on the corner of Artesia and Pacific Coast Highway. There were other cities at this conference and they all said would do anything to get a Lazy Acres Market in their city. One day I received a call from Scott Manclark of Cypress Retail Group based in Hermosa Beach and was told that Lazy Acres Market had made an agreement with Hope Chapel to place Lazy Acres on the at the corner of Artesia and PCH. My self and Councilmember Carolyn Petty, the City Manager Tom Bakaly and some of the City staff visited the Lazy Acres Market in Long Beach and were extremely impressed with the operation of this store. Mr. Davis also reminded me about the conference in Sacramento and what the other cities were will to for Lazy Acres Market but he told me to tell the other cities that Hermosa had won. We all left with a feeling that Lazy Acres Market would be a great asset for Hermosa Beach.

This market will be residents best source for wholesome, natural and organic food products. This building meets or exceeds all sustainable requirements of the State of California from photo voltaic panels on the roof, energy efficient lighting and heating cooling equipment ,storm water infiltration system and a sound walls to mitigate sound of delivery trucks.

There will be outdoor seating and dining area with 56 seats for customers to relax and talk to friends. Real estate reports show that by having this type of neighborhood market property values in the area rise by an average of 25 to 30 percent.

Hermosa Beach should be proud that Lazy Acres Market owner Kevin Davis dedication to place Lazy Acres Market in Hermosa Beach will finally open on October 13 . I feel that not only Hermosa Beach residents but even the neighboring residents will be proud of this market.

Hermosa truck traffic

Michael Hixon’s article of October 4 on the Strand and Pier hotel project raised valid issues and the opportunity to issue an invitation.

Most readers have made countless drives through 27th Street. We invite everyone particularly our new City Manager, Council Members and Planning Commissioners to park your car. Walk our block, (Morningside Drive to Manhattan Avenue).

Observe the narrow obstructed sidewalk without a parking barrier. Feel your close proximity to the flow of heavy truck traffic. See tire marks on the curbs. Smell the toxic exhaust. Hear & feel the impact of vehicles slamming onto the heavily damaged surface.

Did you notice the sign prohibiting Commercial vehicles over 3 tons?

Imagine adding 7,500 more trucks over a 19 month period and as many as 150 heavy trucks a day.

Share our experience.
