Community Meeting (Sept. 25th) – Super turn-out! Room filled at Rivera’s (thank you George and Family for hosting us). We had a report of grand theft auto’s in RP neighborhood – and no, we are not the center of this problem. Thank you Kenny for this excellent presentation. We’ll have more on this in the upcoming posts.

We covered neighborhood building actions in the ‘hood. Including the opportunity for an Alley Art project. Kick-off presentation with artist and neighborhood on during the Open Studio weekend. Stop by and check out. Maybe sign up and be part of the art mural experience.  [post image comes from art project collection]

Preservation and Improvement – October

Oct. 8th – the Cultural Heritage Commission will host a study session on Accessory Dwelling Units in Long Beach’s Historic Districts. If you are considering building one in Rose Park or Rose Park South. This would be a good session to attend.

The Study Session is intended to give the Commission and public a general idea of ADU requirements, how they fit into historic districts, and how other cities process them. There’s no action being taken by the Commission, this is just information session and discussion, but as district leadership your input is important.

Please note Meeting Location: Cultural Heritage Commission, Expo Arts Center,  4321 Atlantic Avenue, Long Beach, Ca 90807 Time: 4:30pm -7:00pm
