Long Beach Seeks Public Input

The public is invited to weigh in on a draft that outlines the Port of Long Beach’s long-term land use and development goals and policies.

The port has released a draft of its Port Master Plan, which was last updated in 1990. Revisions were required to reflect changes to the industry and prepare for future challenges.

The public can provide input on Aug. 26, at 6 p.m., during the regular Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners meeting, which takes place at the Long Beach City Hall, Bob Foster Civic Chambers, 411 W. Ocean Blvd., Long Beach, Calif., 90802.

Stakeholders may submit comments in writing until Sept. 30 to Matt Plezia, Director of Master Planning, Port of Long Beach, 415 W. Ocean Blvd., Long Beach, CA 90802, or to pmp@polb.com.

The draft can be found at www.polb.com/masterplanupdate. An Environmental Impact Report for the Master Plan Update is expected to be released as well.
