Concessions at the Beach
Our shoreline is one of our city’s most valuable resources, and we have exciting opportunities coming to our beach over the next several years. The first of which is the improvements to our concessions buildings at the beach. Imagine doing more along the coast, like riding your bike to grab a beer with friends, or enjoying new play zones for kids and families. There are so many possibilities and we want your input.
Restoration of our coastline is an important task, and in Long Beach, we find that we have better results when the community has a seat at the table. We want your feedback in the design and planning process to improve our beach concessions.
You are invited to meet the architect and review the proposed designs for the renovations of the Alamitos, Junipero and Granada Beach Concession Buildings, during public meetings on Wednesday, February 15, and Thursday, February 16.
We are proud to continue building on the progress we’ve made to the coastal experience, but we know we can do more. With you input, we have a chance to really reenergize the experience at our beaches for both our residents and our visitors.
The two meetings will provide similar information:
February 15, 5:30 – 6:30 pm
Leeway Sailing Center, 5437 East Ocean Boulevard
February 16, 5:30 – 6:30 pm
Bixby Park Community Center, 130 Cherry Avenue
In addition to the proposed building renovations, the public will be able to review proposed conceptual plans for adding play and exercise locations adjacent to the Concession Buildings.
As I mentioned, there’s much more to come on improvements to our miles of beach. We are in the second year of the Army Corps of Engineers’ study on the Breakwater. By the end of this year we will see possible design options for the Breakwater, and we will want your voice heard then too.
Thanks for being involved in here in Long Beach and for coming out to these meetings.
