Provide feedback on the proposed Piazza (Peppertree Plaza) in Downtown San Pedro
The Pepper Tree Plaza is located next to the Historic San Pedro City Hall, at the corner of S Harbor Blvd and W 6th St. While it is located in the center of Downtown, the current plaza is not meeting the community’s needs.

The new San Pedro Piazza Project aims to redesign the plaza and create a vibrant public space for San Pedro locals and visitors. We are currently in the schematic design phase, and your answers to this survey will help us develop the design further.

Domestic Violence Resources

City Attorney Mike Feuer and District Attorney Jackie Lacey just launched the "Behind Closed Doors" campaign, in partnership with the Los Angeles Unified School District and the California Grocers Association, to highlight in-home crimes amid the COVID crisis. Not everyone is safer at home. And whether it's domestic violence, child abuse or elder abuse, being isolated can make victims more vulnerable.

Here are resources for victims of domestic violence. Please share. Victims can also text 911 or call 911 in an emergency.
