Community Forum on the Clean Air Benefits of Zero Emission Technologies

On Thursday, March 24, 2011  join 7th District Councilmember and the West Long Beach Association for a community presentation by the Air Quality Management District (AQMD).

The presentation will discuss the current air quality in West Long Beach, health effects of air pollution, and zero emission technologies. With expansion plans of near-dock rail being considered, it is pertinent to consider zero emission technologies as an efficient and greener way to move goods.

“The technology currently exists to move containers to near-dock facilities without polluting our communities. Such zero-emissions goods movement technology represents a true paradigm shift, as we would be able to move goods quickly and efficiently to market without sacrificing the health of our neighborhoods,” says Councilmember James Johnson.

This free presentation is open to all concerned residents. Light refreshments will be served.

The Clean Air Benefits of Zero Emission Technologies event is Thursday March 24th, 2011 from 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM at Silverado Park Community Room
1545 W. 31st St., Long Beach, 90810.

    Why doesn’t this Long Beach website have any pictures of places on the Westside community of Long Beach? We have a nice place for families at the Silverado Park. Yes, most of our part of town is encumbered with Port trucks and the related commercial businesses that support our Port.

    How about sending someone to take some nice pictures of Silverado Park and./or Admiral Kidd Park here on the Westside.

    Any suggestions as to where we can find some photos of the Westside…yes, that forgotten area from the 710 to the Alameda Corridor!
