The City of Palos Verdes Estates has approved $1.2 million plan to stabilize the landslide on Palos Verdes Drive West near Via Montemar which is threatening to undermine the roadway. Approx. $500,000 may be available from Federal Stimulus money to help fund this project. The repair involveds a 50 foot wall, which would be mostlu covered by dirt, on the ocean side of Palos Verdes Drive West.
A landslide here in the 1980's destroyed 2 homes and was blamed on faulty storm drains costing the City millions of dollars in legal settlements. As part of these settlements, the City now owns 6 homes, I believe, that the City Manager and police occupy. The City will put the job out to bid as soon as the Federal Funds are secured.
