share this:


The Downtown Residential Council will hold a special community forum at 7pm on Monday, March 16, 2015, at the Scottish Rite Event Center, 855 Elm Avenue, Long Beach, 90813.

The forum will be a conversation with Plenary-Edgemoor Civic Partners (PECP) about the new Civic Center in downtown Long Beach.  Downtown residents will be directly impacted by the construction process of the new Civic Center project.  They will also be the residents most directly impacted by the various aspects of the new Civic Center when it is completed.  This new Civic Center will become integral to the day-to-day lives of downtown residents.

PECP is the team selected by the City Council to develop this important project.  The more formal, City sponsored meetings will have been completed at the time of this forum. The DRC forum is a special community outreach event to directly engage residents to share information and gather input to PECP about ideas, issues and opinions.

Several community groups within the DRC are very interested in the new Civic Center project.  They will have the opportunity to provide meaningful input at this special forum.  This may well be one of the most important opportunities downtown residents have to directly discuss their concerns and visions with PECP about this project that will affect their daily lives.

The forum will be held in the spectacular Scottish Rite Event Center at 855 Elm Avenue.  This beautiful venue – an historical gem in Long Beach – will be a special treat for everyone.  Parking is nearby.  Light refreshments will be served.

Everyone in Long Beach is invited to attend.  The DRC expects a large turnout.

The Downtown Residential Council (DRC) is a local entity that brings together leaders of the Downtown residential community.  The community encompasses all residents within Downtown Long Beach, loosely bound on the south by the ocean, on the north by 10th Street, on the west by the 710 Freeway and the on the east by Alamitos Avenue.  The DRC serves as a forum for neighborhood association representatives to join together to discuss issues of common concern and work together to achieve solutions of benefit for residents by focusing on community, communication and impact to make Downtown a better place to live.
