PLEASE SIGN OUR PETITION

DEAR MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS,

The undersigned are Manhattan Beach residents and businesses who support approval of the new 162-room hotel proposed at 600 S. Sepulveda Blvd. by the City of Manhattan Beach City Council. This new, distinctive hotel will replace the former El Torito restaurant.

The Hotel adds several protections for neighbors including increased building setbacks, extensive use of landscape and hardscape, and street improvements that minimize impacts to the residents adjacent to the Hotel. The Hotel will use state-of-the-art ventilation and other systems to provide safe stays for travelers.

The Hotel will attract tens of thousands of visitors and patrons to our downtown, local businesses, and retail establishments. New tax revenues to the City are projected to exceed $1.30 million each year, new revenues paid to the MBUSD to exceed $77,500 per year and the project will create more than 50 new permanent jobs between the Hotel, the retail and office spaces.
