|Incorporated April 29th, 1892,
the City of Redondo Beach is the ninth city officially established in Los Angeles County.
Its rich history includes Native American sites, an ambitious working seaport that
rivaled the best in Southern California, numerous recreational facilities, and oceanfront
residences. Redondo Beach is also the oldest South Bay city, the southern portion of
the Santa Monica Bay coastal area.
By encouraging the protection of historically significant landmarks, our community heritage is preserved. Since 1989 Redondo Beach's Preservation Commission has maintained a register of individual and historic districts within the City. Commission's Meetings are broadcast live on Adelphia Channel 8 the first Wednesday of each month. [View our latest Agenda & previous Meeting Minutes.]
