The final “7th Street Visioning” public workshop is Saturday, September 20th, from 10:00a to 12:00p, at MOLAA (628 Alamitos Ave). It’s an important meeting to make, if you can, for Roger Sherman and Matthew Littell, urban planners from RSAUD and UTILE, respectively, have taken into consideration all of the feedback from the two previous public meetings that were held, imput from Councilwoman Lowenthal’s office (who is funding the study), as well as various city departments, and will be on hand to offer propoals for the location and content of the demonstration/pilot project that will follow.
As a reminder, the demonstration/pilot project will help demonstrate the value of the overall plan’s long-term vision, usefulness, and value not only to those of us who live, work, and travel on the street, but to agencies whose funding will be critical to bringing the needed resources to execute the plan. Community input is essential in making the street work for everyone—residents of the area as much as anyone. Participants in Saturday’s gathering will have an important opportunity in locating and shaping the demonstration project. Input obtained at previous meetings has been very helpful in shaping the long-term vision for the street, and we expect Saturday’s Meeting to be no different.
In the event that you cannot attend the planning session, the project has a means to gather your opinion (if you’ve not already provided it this way) via an online survey, which can be reached at www.longbeach.gov/district2/7thstreetvision/
We look forward to seeing everyone on the 20th!
