Sighting life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness--which in this case is the freedom to skateboard--a group of youths has formally complained to Hermosa Beach city officials that there is not enough space in the city for land surfers. At last week's City Council meeting, a group of about 10 skateboarders challenged officials to build a skateboard park. The youths said the city built a park for roller hockey and they want a park of their own.

After more than a year of searching for a site where they can legally perform their acrobatic stunts, Hermosa Beach skateboarders are poised to get one of the first publicly funded skateboard parks in Los Angeles County. The Hermosa Beach City Council has unanimously approved a plan to spend more than $240,000 to create a 7,000-square-foot skateboard park on a back lot at the city's Community Center within the next year.

After threatening to suspend county beach services in Hermosa Beach after Labor Day, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors this week voted 4 to 0 to give the city a 60-day reprieve. The supervisors decided last month to cut off its lifeguard and beach maintenance after the Hermosa Beach City Council refused to pay more for the services. But the supervisors agreed to extend its deadline to Nov.

City officials have moved a step closer to finding a permanent site for a skateboard park in Hermosa Beach. A subcommittee is evaluating a plan to provide a 10,000-square-foot swath of land at South Park or purchase a smaller piece of vacant land near the city's community center, said City Manager Steve Burrell. However, the second site may be too small to accommodate a skateboard park, Burrell said.

The supervisors voted 3 to 1 Tuesday to continue providing beach services through Dec. 28. Supervisor Ed Edelman dissented and Supervisor Gloria Molina was not present.

With Los Angeles County planning to suspend lifeguard and beach-cleaning services at Hermosa Beach after Sept. 7, Hermosa officials are considering everything from closing the beach to charging out-of-town visitors to use it. In a special meeting Tuesday, the Hermosa Beach City Council discussed those proposals, as well as possible legal action to stop the threatened suspension, but has not yet settled on a solution.

In a move to get skateboarders off the street and into their own park, the Hermosa Beach City Council has formed a subcommittee to evaluate plans for a skateboard park within city limits. Although city officials are hoping plans to build a skate park in neighboring Redondo Beach pan out, they have opted to review possibilities in Hermosa Beach, said City Manager Steve Burrell.

There is a sun-dappled path not far from the ocean that runs the length of Hermosa Beach, and the community's canines have had the blissful run of the place for what seems like, well, a dog's age. But freedom, like California real estate, has its price, and the city is closing escrow on that promenade for $7.5 million. Plans to enforce the local leash law there have touched off a howl among dog owners that is reverberating all the way to the ballot box.
