Long Beach Central Project Area Council Host Second Meeting August 2nd
2012-08-01 · By Editor
On Thursday evening, the new Long Beach Central Project Area Council (LB CPAC) will hold its second regular monthly meeting at 6pm at Mental Health America, 456 Elm Avenue. There is plenty of street parking, so please don’t park in the Albertson’s lot.
This month’s agenda will include a presentation about Berth 55 and a follow up on the title loan business proposed for Pacific Coast Highway and Pacific Avenue.
The presentation regarding Berth 55 will be related to options available to tenants with regard to their operations at that location and how negotiations with the port are proceeding.
A number of CPAC members will be speaking at the Planning Commission earlier that same evening about opposition to a title loan business. Those folks will report the process and outcome at the CPAC meeting.
The new Long Beach Central Project Area Council replaces the Central Project Area Committee for Redevelopment which ceased to exist when the Redevelopment Agencies were eliminated by Governor Brown earlier this year. Since there is no longer an RDA the new LB CPAC will no longer receive funding or staff support from the RDA or the City; however, the goals remain the same. The LB CPAC will focus on the central area of Long Beach. The boundaries of the area are roughly Redondo Blvd. on the east, Ocean Blvd. on the south, the L.A. river up to Pacific Coast Highway and then over to the western edge of the city on the west and Wardlow Road on the north.
