It has been a several year process of transferring the Federally owned Schroeder Hall facility on Willow at Grand to the City of Long Beach. Federal regulations for such a transfer require a “homeless component’ as part of the deal. Putting an MHA facility at the 1955 Long Beach Blvd. site is part of that component. Our panel will be able answer many questions you may have about the accommodation of a “homeless component” as well as the plans for the new facility and its potential impact on the surrounding neighborhood. The property on Willow is expected to become the basis for a new East Division Police – LBPD – Station.

Sammy Portillo Will give a presentation about ice cream truck issues – including noise. He has done extensive research on the matter and will be presenting possible solutions for discussion.
