Statewide Order Requires City Council to Lift Prohibition on Construction Activities

Manhattan Beach, CA (March 23, 2020) – Consistent with the Governor's revised order and California FAQ’s responses regarding essential work during the stay at home orders issued over the weekend, the City Council has lifted the prohibition on construction activities, effective immediately. 

“Recognizing the Governor’s most recent action that limits a City’s ability to define essential services relative to the local community, the City will now allow construction activity, as to not come into conflict with the emergency orders from the State,” said Mayor Richard Montgomery.

Construction and all related activities that support construction, are considered part of the essential workforce under the State Order. The exemption is not limited to critical infrastructure construction, but any type of construction site and construction project, including housing construction.

On Friday, the City Council enacted the construction ban in an effort to reduce the likelihood of the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) due to the close working conditions typically present at construction worksites, and the close proximity of residential lots. However, in light of the Governor’s revised Order and the many contractors who informed the City that they will exercise social distancing protocols, the City will allow construction activities.

In a related action, the City Council will consider an urgency ordinance at Wednesday’s City Council meeting that imposes penalties on residents, visitors, and businesses, including those conducting construction activities, who do not abide by the social distancing orders issued by the State and County.   

As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, the City of Manhattan Beach will continue to provide updates. Information regarding the coronavirus is changing frequently. For accurate and up to date information about COVID-19, please visit DPH’s website, the City’s website, sign up for eNotifications, and Nixle public safety alerts, and follow the City on Facebook, Twitter, Nextdoor, and Instagram.

For questions on the implementation of the County’s Order and new City measures related to addressing COVID-19, please send an email to covid-19questions@citymb.info.
