March 16, 2010 <br />Mayor Wolowitz <br />Members of the Rancho Palos Verdes City Council <br />Honorable Members: <br />As you may be aware, many Rancho Palos Verdes residents are concerned with the problem related the <br />San Ramon/Tarapaca Landslide. In the last rainstorm, a large amount of mud flowed down the lower <br />San Ramon canyon and ended up on 25th Street. While damage was limited in this instance, more rain <br />is forecasted. Hence, we strongly urge the City to immediately address the Palos Verdes Drives East and <br />South Road Stabilization Project otherwise known as the "Lower San Ramon/Tarapaca Landslide." <br />We can all agree that Palos Verdes Drive East provides critical access to our neighborhood, the eastern <br />side of the peninsula, and our community. Notwithstanding the disruptions in traffic it causes and the <br />reliance on City of Los Angeles to clean up after each rainstorm, we are concerned about the continual <br />effect this has on the west bank of the canyon that supports this arterial. <br />This as an urgent issue that needs to be addressed now before further damage is done. We recommend <br />that an interim solution should be sought to prevent erosion and thereby reduce the amount of soil <br />flowing out of the canyon. This has several advantages: First, it buys time while support for a more <br />permanent solution can be obtained. And second, it demonstrates a good neighbor policy towards <br />adjacent jurisdictions. <br />Thank you in advance for your time and consideration in this matter. We look forward to working with <br />the City to address this timely issue. <br />Si re , <br />PAULA PETROTTA <br />Vice President <br />-A #L3 <br />RECEIVE=FRO <br />AND MARECORD AT THCOUNCl/all ��� ����0ITY CLERKCA, CITY CLERK <br />
