After meeting with the Downtown Business Association and the newspaper publishers on several occasions, the Public Works Department proposed a number of changes to the City's news rack program with a special emphasis on the Downtown area.
1816 Manhattan Beach Boulevard
All news racks must be the K-Jack Engineering Model 50.
All news racks must be painted K-Jack standard color "Post Blue."
No more than 5 news rack spaces are allowed on any side of a block.
This means that no more than 10 news rack boxes are allowed on any side of a block because they can be stacked one atop of another.
News racks must be placed in pre-approved locations by the Public Works Director and pre-marked by 5/8" corner marks.
An annual permit fee and liability insurance is required for each news rack.
