Volunteers Needed for Downtown Entertainment District Taskforce
2013-10-31 · By Editor
The City of Long Beach is seeking volunteers to serve on a Downtown Dining and Entertainment District Taskforce. Input from the Taskforce will help City Councilmembers ensure that Downtown Long Beach welcomes and serves the proper balance of dining, nightlife, retail, residential, and commercial uses.
The City Council established the Taskforce in September based on an agenda item brought forth by Councilmember Suja Lowenthal, and also approved a one-year moratorium on new type 48 ABC licenses, which are typically associated with night clubs.
The City encourages individuals who reside in, operate businesses in, or own property in and adjacent to the affected area to participate. Taskforce members will be selected on the basis of individual interest, knowledge of the area and expertise. City staff will include the Taskforce’s ideas in the recommendations presented to the City Council.
The Taskforce may meet once or twice each month for up to one year. Meeting times and locations will be set once the Taskforce is established. Interested volunteers should e-mail a letter of interest and summary of qualifications to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 19, 2013.
