Leadership Hermosa Beach has announced its annual class project, Valley for All, following the unanimous approval by the Hermosa Beach City Council on Tuesday, March 23.
To help restore the most popular park within the city, Valley for All features long-term improvements to the eastern barbecue area of Valley Park, including the installation of a new entrance ramp, ground leveling throughout the perimeter, replacement of key amenities, and other necessary upgrades. Understanding the importance and critical need for outdoor spaces, Valley for All offers restored park conditions that provide a more functional, inclusive and accessible space for the entire Hermosa Beach community.
“Valley Park is a much, much used part of our city. We love our parks and that has not been more obvious… than over the past year,” said Councilmember, Mary Campbell during last week’s Hermosa Beach City Council meeting. “They were our place of refuge, our place of getting out of isolation and feeling separate together, and everything else in between. This is going to be a wonderful contribution.”
Working closely with the Hermosa Beach Parks and Recreation Commission, Public Works Commission, and the City’s Planning Department on project plans since the end of 2020, the Leadership Hermosa Beach Class of 2021 is committed to making as many area improvements to the extent achieved through ongoing fundraising activities slated through early May.
This year’s class invites the residents, businesses, and nonprofit organizations of Hermosa Beach and the greater South Bay area to support Valley for All by visiting and donating at https://valleyforall.org/.
The anticipated unveiling of Valley for All will take place on June 13, 2021 at Valley Park, with all project donors and sponsors invited to attend.
