The City Council has asked the city attorney and a citizens committee to suggest ways to improve the city's regulation of noise from industrial plants, particularly Southern California Edison's Redondo Beach power station. The Edison plant has been a source of controversy and noise complaints for decades.

In Redondo Beach, the city that proudly named the Goodyear blimp its official municipal bird, it can sometimes be difficult to tell the absurd from the sublime. Following form, the City Council, in all seriousness, weighed in Tuesday night on a pressing issue: surfers and swimmers who change out of their suits and back into street clothes at the beach. Or vice versa. A 1970s-era ordinance, rarely enforced, forbids dressing, undressing or disrobing in a public place.

Surfers and swimmers who have been changing out of their wet bathing suits and into dry street clothes for the last few decades will now have the legal right to go about their business as usual. The City Council on Tuesday adopted an urgency ordinance to delete a 1970s-era ordinance that prohibited dressing, undressing or disrobing in public places. They also removed a law from the books from the 1950s that specified what kind of bathing apparel was appropriate.

A Redondo Beach law banning toplessness is flimsier than a string bikini, city officials have determined. But voters will have to decide whether to update the unenforceable law. Written in 1967, the law aims to stop adult-oriented businesses from opening in the beach enclave. So far, it has worked. But a recent review of the City Charter, including Provision 21.

The Redondo Beach City Council has moved to prevent a state ruling from forcing the eviction of people who live on boats in King Harbor.

Concern about violence in Southern California has prompted the Redondo Beach City Council to draft a ballot measure making it easier to obtain a permit to carry concealed weapons in Redondo Beach.

After a federal court ruling in June struck down San Diego's tough curfew law, Redondo Beach and Hermosa Beach are planning to revamp their curfew laws for teenagers. The police chiefs and the city attorneys in both cities are working on revisions that will comply more with the San Diego law, which the 5th District Court of Appeals called too vague, overly restrictive and too intrusive on parental rights. Hermosa Beach adopted its curfew law for teenagers in 1989.
