 6th Annual State of the Fifth Council District


Join Councilwoman Gerrie Schipske in reviewing 2011 and looking ahead to 2012.


Come and tell what you think the City of Long Beach should accomplish in 2012. That's right. Instead of the usual State of the Fifth District, this year I am asking that after we review what the City of Long Beach did in 2011, that you will engage in a public conversation about what the City needs to do in 2012.


The "top 10" issues will be posted on my blog and given to the Mayor, City Council and City Manager.

Open Up Long Beach Community Meeting


Monday, February 6, 2012


El Dorado Community Center

2800 Studebaker Road 


Long Beach has an opportunity to engage its residents on what can be done to truly make the City the most open, transparent and collaborative local government in the US. This process will not only encourage and ensure more citizen participation in local government but will spur creative, entrepreneurial businesses as it has done in several other cities where open government was launched.

The first meeting will be held on Monday, February 6, at 6pm in the El Dorado Community Center. Participants will review what some other cities are doing to open their local governments and brain storm about what needs to be done in Long Beach.
