More Light on the Subject:

"The BBR initiative stems from the original Redondo 2002 Heart of the City Development where we led a successful referendum to stop 3,000 condos and the huge development the city planned for the harbor area.

As it stands now, the City is piece-mealing the Heart of the City by breaking harbor development into chunks - they know we can't possibly do a referendum for these smaller dense projects."

- Jim Light, 2007
