Stan Kaplan Rants For Community Board 15

Last week’s Community Board 15 meeting was the final one before summer recess. To mark the occasion,

board member and Manhattan Beach resident

Manhattan Beach Community Group boardmember Stan Kaplan riffed on a number of topics. [UPDATED]

I like Stan. Although he can never remember what blog I’m from, he cares a lot for the community while also having a sense of humor about the issues it faces. So keep in mind that Stan’s rant is light-hearted, while also touching on some serious topics.

And those topics are:

  • Bicyclists on the Ocean Avenue footbridge
  • Manhattan Beach’s zebra stripes
  • Architectural renderings from developers coming in front of the board
  • DOB’s use of “non-compliance” as a euphemism for “illegal”

Correction: The original version of this article indicated Kaplan is a boardmember of Community Board 15. He is not; he is on the board of the MBCG for more than 30 years, and a member of MBNA and Madison-Marine-Homecrest Civic Association. We apologize for the confusion.
