Councilmember Austin Hosts Community Meeting on Vision For Market Street Corridor
2014-10-22 · By Editor
Eighth District Councilmember Al Austin and the Long Beach Office of Sustainability will host a community meeting featuring experts from non-profit Global Green USA to discuss a future vision for the Market Street corridor and surrounding community.
The community meeting will be held in the cafeteria at Jane Addams Elementary School, 5320 Pine Ave., on Tuesday, October 28, 2014 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Global Green staff will present the findings of a two day assessment of the Market Street corridor from the Los Angeles River to Atlantic Avenue and the surrounding community. This assessment is the result of a U.S. Environmental Protection (EPA) Office of Sustainable Communities grant that Long Beach received to assist the City with sustainable neighborhood planning.
The planning assistance is based on the LEED for Neighborhood Development standard, which provides a nationally recognized method for creating neighborhoods that are walkable, bikeable, resource-efficient and equitable. The Global Green team will present findings and request community input on enhancements to the Market Street community that could be incorporated into future plans and upgrades.
