The City of Long Beach is hosting a series of community events, as part of the City’s expanded public outreach for the General Plan Land Use and Urban Design Element.  The next event will be held this Saturday, October 14, at the Golden Sails Hotel, 6285 Pacific Coast Highway.  The meeting location for the fourth event has been relocated from the Expo Center due to roofing construction; and as the City expects more attendees than the facility can accommodate, based on previous General Plan meeting attendance.  The event will now be held in an outdoor tent area at Scherer Park, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, adjacent to the Long Beach Police North Division, 4891 Atlantic Ave., to better accommodate the several hundred expected attendees and help ensure parking availability.

Both meetings will feature a town hall presentation, a question and answer component, and an open house format to provide several opportunities for engagement.  This format will enable a diversity of voices to participate and offer input on this important planning project.
