Outreach Efforts Continue for Livable West Long Beach Plan and Green Terminal Island Plan

lblncovericonOutreach efforts are continuing for the preparation of the City of Long Beach Livable West Long Beach Plan and the Green Terminal Island (TI) Plan, and the public is invited to provide input on these two key planning projects that will have a major impact on enhancing the quality of life in West Long Beach.

The next community workshop has been scheduled for Saturday, March 14, 2015, at 9:00 am at Silverado Park, 1545 W. 31st St.

The event will offer participants an opportunity to speak one-on-one with project team members, and discuss ideas with fellow community members.  The event will also review a prioritization of existing regional, City, and Port livability focused policies and project plans based on criteria established by the community at the first workshop held in December.

The Livable West Long Beach Plan is intended to develop an implementation strategy for livability-focused measures throughout the west corridor of the City.  The Green TI Plan will define the community’s vision for converting the underutilized freeway into a local serving road with an associated greenbelt.

Additional community meetings and workshops will be scheduled during the planning process. For more information, please contact Brant Birkeland at 562.570.6922 or brant.birkeland@longbeach.gov.  For the latest news regarding this project or to get involved, visit www.lbds.info/westlongbeachplan, where you can sign up for e-mail notifications and status updates.
