The Annenberg Project in Rancho Palos Verdes


 The Annenberg Foundation has an Environmental Impact Report in progress for its multimillion dollar project at Lower Point Vicente.  Plans have also been submitted to the city of Rancho Palos Verdes for approval and a formal application is anticipated soon.

“The proposal, based on a comprehensive study of the community done in concert with the development of the Coast Vision Plan, includes using architecture, art and exhibits to inform the public about Palos Verdes geology, history, marine ecology, terrestrial animals and habitats…” according to the Rancho Palos Verdes site (which can be accessed by clicking here).  The Center would focus on providing education, science, behavior and care of animals and animal adoption opportunities.  There will be an outdoor reconstructed Tongva Village, an archaeological dig, picnic areas, restroom facilities, and trails.

All this at “Zero cost to the city” according to the Annenberg power point presentation (which can be accessed by clicking here).  The Annenberg Foundation’s budget for this project is $38,000,000 to $42,000,00 and they will also to fund operations.  This will be a project to watch!
