In an effort to put the old Manhattan Heights Library building to use, city officials have planned a presentation and public meeting tonight to discuss placing a proposed cultural arts center on the site. The city purchased the building from the county in 1995 when the library--the smaller of two located in Manhattan Beach--closed as part of cutbacks by Los Angeles County Public Library system.

I strongly oppose development of a $40-million cultural arts complex in the Sepulveda Basin. Many have characterized supporters of the recently enacted measure to restrict non-residential growth (Proposition U) as having an "I've got mine, now close the gates" mentality. In reality, voters were telling city officials and their planners, "I've got mine, but I can't get to it." The proposed cultural arts complex is another example of the lack of understanding of the serious traffic congestion in areas near the Sepulveda Dam. Residents in the surrounding communities are not culturally deprived.

The lowest construction bid for the Torrance Cultural Arts Center is $1.2 million more than the nearly $11 million the city has budgeted for the project, but city officials plan to proceed despite the overrun. "There goes the contingency (fund)," Councilman Bill Applegate said after hearing of the bid opening Tuesday. "It won't be a problem." In an eight-way bidding war, Moran Construction Co. of Alhambra offered to erect the four-building complex for $12.23 million.

In an effort to bring more culture to Manhattan Beach, the City Council decided Tuesday night to create a city-sponsored "Endowment for the Arts Program." The council voted 4 to 1 for the program, which will spend up to $50,000 in city money during the next two fiscal years to put art in public places. The city also will allocate up to $100,000 over the next two fiscal years to a Public Arts Trust Fund.
