The gated City of Rolling Hills sits on the hillsides of Portuguese Bend, a windy portion of the Palos Verdes Peninsula where you notice the coastal highway dips and warns that the road is subject to movement and shifting.
Incorporated on January 24, 1957, the city of three square miles hasn't grown much since its inception. Today you'll find around 2,000 people living the good life with forever views of the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island in the distance.
Some areas of the City are prone to unstable geology which may limit onsite retention of stormwater beyond that which can be achieved by preserving pervious area and natural topography and vegetation
