I-710 Corridor Project Environmental Impact Report Draft Letter On July 9th and August 18, 2012, Councilmember Neal hosted two community meetings to discuss the impacts of the proposed I-710 Corridor project. At those meetings, residents indicated a number of opinions and suggestions on the project.
At the July 24th, 2012, Long Beach City Council Meeting, the city council requested staff to draft a comment letter and to include sentiments from residents at the community meetings, to express support for the alternative with the least immediate impact to the I-710 study area in Long Beach, to explore various mitigation options that serve and improve the immediate community, such as:
Local hiring preferences
Increased green space and aesthetics
Traffic and environmental mitigations.
These key points were included in the City's Environmental Impact Report (EIR) Draft Letter to Cal-Trans.
