Community Input Encouraged on North Long Beach Restaurant Project
2011-03-04 · By Editor
The City has developed a vision for North Long Beach that includes the transformation of the intersection of Atlantic Avenue and Artesia Boulevard into an important commercial gateway. To further this vision, The Long Beach Redevelopment Agency assembled a 2.2 acre site located at the northeast corner of Atlantic Avenue and Artesia Boulevard for the development of a full-service, sit-down restaurant, as preferred by the community.
On Saturday, March 5, Councilmember Steven Neal, 9th District and the Long Beach Redevelopment Agency, together with Primestor Development, Inc. will host a community discussion on the site planning and design of a full-service restaurant. The discussion will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Jordan High School Cafeteria, 6500 Atlantic Avenue. Free parking is available in the Jordan High School staff parking lot off of Atlantic Avenue. Light breakfast will be served.
“This is an opportunity for residents to provide input on the selection and design of their new neighborhood restaurant,” said Councilmember Steven Neal. “With improvement projects of all types and sizes being planned and implemented in North Long Beach, we are making sure everyone plays a part in shaping this corridor to help stimulate economic development and build a more vibrant neighborhood for all of us.”
Close to $5.5 million in extensive streetscape and façade improvements have taken place along Atlantic Avenue and just south of site is the North Village Center, a mixed-used development that will include a new state-of-the-art public library and community center.
