Ruby's Diner, a 1940s-style restaurant popular among beach-goers in Newport Beach and elsewhere along the coast, won permission Tuesday from the Redondo Beach City Council to open a new restaurant next door to the city's Seaside Lagoon. The 5-0 decision came over the objections of marina-area homeowners, who complained that the restaurant would block their view, add to congestion, and exacerbate the proliferation of chain restaurants in the area.

Redondo Beach residents say they favor keeping the Seaside Lagoon pretty much the way it is. The Harbor Commission, the Recreation and Parks Commission and the Budget and Taxation Commission on May 21 will make recommendations to the City Council on the future of the lagoon, which almost didn't open this year. The city considered closing the saltwater lagoon and four-acre park, open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, because it would cost $1.

Barbecue pits, grassy parks, picnic areas, playground equipment, water slides and a new pump system are scheduled to be added as part a $2 million face-lift planned for Seaside Lagoon this winter. The popular saltwater park in King Harbor Marina was almost forced to close two years ago when city officials discovered that damage from the 1994 Northridge earthquake had posed several safety concerns.

The popular Seaside Lagoon in Redondo Beach will open in May after all. The city considered closing the saltwater lagoon and four-acre park because it would cost $1.5 million to replace the damaged water pipes and chlorination system. The pipes broke in September and were repaired, but more breakage could occur. The City Council voted Tuesday night to spend $150,000 to funnel chlorinated ocean water into the 1.2-acre city lagoon instead of repairing the pipes.
