Redondo Beach's District 5 News

by Laura Emdee, City Councilmember

Emdee-Square

Welcome to Redondo Beach!

Our diverse community is friendly and happy. When you move to Redondo you are part of a community that values tradition, safety and education. We are proud of our area and expect it to be clean and well maintained. Our little corner of paradise is home to Redondo’s largest employer, Northrup Grumman. Our schools are the envy of the South Bay. Our popular hotels on Marine Avenue helped save Redondo Beach’s budget when sales tax dipped. Plus, we are freeway close to everything the LA area has to offer. The Metro Green Line stops at Marine & Redondo Avenue and will be expanding to the Galleria by 2028.

We work hard, we play fair and we are pleased to live here. Below you will see the work we do to keep our neighborhood a safe, clean and happy place to live.

Thank you for visiting this site and being a part of this great community.

Redondo Beach City Council
Proudly representing District 5
