SAN PEDRO San Pedro's Northwest Neighborhood Council has unanimously approved a motion in support of bringing the USS Iowa battleship to the Port of Los Angeles. The action was taken at the council's meeting Monday night, making Northwest the last of the community's three neighborhood councils to express support for the proposal. The vote followed a presentation by Robert Kent, president of the Pacific Battleship Center, the nonprofit group spearheading the effort. Port officials announced last week they would conduct an economic analysis of the proposal, expected to be completed within a couple of months. The port's agreement to berth the ship under a 10-year lease is needed before a formal application for the ship's donation can be made to the U.S. Navy. Applications are due Nov. 24. In addition to all three neighborhood councils, the proposal has won the support of the San Pedro Downtown Business Association and by subcommittees of the Chamber of Commerce and Port Community Advisory Committee.
