Creating a Digital Roadmap

Release Date: 0001-01-01

Dear Friends,

Last night at the Council meeting I authored four agenda items designed to ensure that the City of Long Beach is doing its part to create a road map to digital inclusion for our residents, business owners and government facilities. In short, the items ask that over the next 120 days City Staff research the following:
  • Identify communities in Long Beach where the digital divide is the greatest and review existing program to get residents connected
  • Establish Long Beach as an affiliate of the National Digital Inclusion Alliance
  • Create a plan to refurbish and redistribute old computers to underserved communities
  • Understand the number of patents in the City of Long Beach and how to support more residents in obtaining patents

I am proud to say that my colleagues unanimously approved all four items. If you would like to read the items in detail you can CLICK HERE (Items 13-16).               
LB MUST Enters Design Phase 

Additionally, we approved the next phase for the Long Beach Municipal Urban Storm-water Treatment (LB MUST) Facility which will feature a state of the art building in the first district and over 5 acres of wetlands to help store the water. Stay tuned for upcoming community meetings to discuss design features and other ascetic elements about the project. 
My team and I work hard, daily to ensure that the First District is a Fun and safe place to live, work and play in. Please feel free to reach out to my office at 562-570-6919 or district1@longbeach.gov

All my best, 

First District Councilwoman
City of Long Beach
