Focus: Etiquette and Engagement vs. Nuisance

We’ll be addressing nuisance behaviors: parking, trash, smoking, noise and ways we can be part of the solution. Sign up to volunteer for 10th Street Treekeepping, Newsletter distribution and other neighborhood actions.

And on your way to the bus stop or cycling to class if you should notice a tree stump in the parkway – call or email it in to the city!!! There is $ and a plan to remove stumps in the entire city. We have them in RP!!!

From Mayor Garcia’s desk:

If you have a tree stump in your neighborhood that needs removal, please email us at ContactLBPW@longbeach.gov and include “Tree Stump” in your subject line. Be sure to include the address of where the stump is located in the body of your email. We plan to remove all reported stumps over the course of the next year.
