The city of Redondo Beach encourages residents to have a block party
Redondo Beach wants you to have a block party.

There's small kids jumping in the bouncy on the front lawn. There are men standing over the bbq comparing landscaping techniques. Women are setting up the potluck items on the rented folding tables, while teens play volleyball on the court set up in the middle of the street. There's a few kids on the skateboard ramp doing tricks while they avoid running over the neighbor's dog. There's so much potato salad, and not a video game in sight.

According to the city of Redondo Beach website: redondo.org, you can apply for a block party for your street. Why does the city encourage this? The website says that it promotes a sense of caring in the area and ultimately makes it a safer place to live by renewing neighborhood awareness.

There are no fees to pay the city to have your block party, however, you do need a host who will be responsible for getting a minimum of 85% of the resident's signatures on petition to approve the party. The city will provide a BBQ for a $25 refundable cleaning fee. If you plan on having music, you must also apply for a $72 amplified sound permit from the Redondo Beach Police Dept.

Some of the guidlines that are important to know about:

No advertising the party. This is only for the residents of the block.
The party can be a maximum of 5 to 8 hours, depending which side of PCH you live on.
The host is responsible for placing the street barriers which will be provided by city staff.
The same laws apply for the use of dispensing alcohol as usual.

You can also request to have a special visit from the Police or Fire Department to stop by and say hello. If you don't follow the guidelines, you may get a visit from them anyway.
