ASSET MANAGEMENT DIVISION
The Asset Management Division (AMD) is primarily responsible for the development and leasing of Marina del Rey. Due in large part to the efforts of AMD, the Department generates approximately $58 million annually for the County. AMD is divided into three sections: (1) Property Management, which maintains and manages Marina ground leases and Beach concession licenses, and administers right of entry permits; (2) Leasehold Development, which is responsible for negotiating new Marina ground leases and lease extensions; and (3) Portfolio Management, which is responsible for devising and implementing strategies to add value to County’s Marina assets. The Division is staffed by professional County employees with various backgrounds including business, real estate, and the law.
The Planning Division’s responsibilities cover a wide range of projects, issues and activities relating to Marina del Rey and most of the Los Angeles County coastline. These include, but are not limited to, overseeing and administering the Local Coastal Program and Land Use Plan for Marina del Rey; monitoring and maintaining the seawall; acting as a liaison between the Department and the Design Control Board for any new design development or existing design modifications within unincorporated Marina del Rey; reviewing and approving temporary signs, banners and tents; mitigating transportation issues in Marina del Rey and along seven of the County-operated beaches; addressing environmental concerns; and planning and monitoring capital projects, which improve infrastructure.
