In San Pedro's downtown business district, where revitalization is underway on 7th Street, large clay pots with newly planted flowers dot the sidewalk. New posters hang in shop windows, inviting people to get reacquainted with the area at a monthly open house. Everyone is invited. Everyone, that is, except the new neighbors. Half a block away, in the back of a converted auto repair shop, the clatter of brown metal folding chairs signals dinner time for a group of homeless people.

Almost four decades of urban renewal have transformed the decaying waterfronts of Boston, Baltimore, Miami, New Orleans, Seattle, Monterey, San Diego and Long Beach, but not San Pedro. Despite panoramic views, diverse ethnicity and picturesque hills, a revitalization effort under way since the 1960s has yet to spark the economic renaissance repeatedly forecast by San Pedro's business and political leaders. Instead of marketplaces, historic gas-lamp districts and waterfront restaurants teeming with patrons, redevelopment in L.A.'s port town of 75,000 has produced only a smattering of modest projects since former City Councilman John S. Gibson Jr. heralded its first steps.

The challenge: How to create jobs and make the harbor area's economy rebound. Market San Pedro as a vacation package with Catalina Island? Launch joint ventures between the Port of Los Angeles and local businesses? Build a world-class aquarium? Create waterfront shops and attractions? Sell San Pedro's fishing village history and charm?
