Come out to Houghton Park in order to get a sneak-peak of our four Houghton Park Community Center Designs, on Thursday, February 4th, 2016.

The new, Houghton Park Community Center planning continues to move forward! Check out this exciting report, filled with exciting news, facts and easy-to-understand charts can be access by clicking (here).
In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy and commitment to service, our "Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service" included:

Propagation/ planting of trees, shrubs, and drought-tolerant, native plants, application of a paper-sheet and cardboard barrier that will be covered with mulch, construction of bioswales within specified parkway space, and solidification of our ocean-garden as a "Monarch Butterfly Waystation".

Monarch Way stations are places that provide resources necessary for monarchs to produce successive generations and sustain their migration.

The completion of this project also helps reduce our landscape's water-footprint, flooding at the intersection of Gundry and 65th, increased removal of silt and pollution from surface runoff water (bioswales) and supply of ecosystem services, and improved visual aesthetic through creative design.
First Lady Michelle Obama is a winner.

At least she was Thursday evening in north Long Beach, when a majority of those attending a community meeting agreed that naming a new library there after her was a good idea.

More than 150 people gathered Thursday, Jan. 21, at the Houghton Park Community Center to figure out what to name the library at Atlantic Avenue and 59th Street, which is currently under construction.

Ninth District Councilman Rex Richardson has spearheaded the campaign to name the library for Obama, and he kicked off Thursday’s meeting by showing the same slideshow and video presentation he’d previously shown the City Council. The council has voted — twice — to support reviewing the name. But others have opposed it.
