Our first State of the 9th District event last week was empowering as the call for the continued Uptown Renaissance was made. I am thankful for all of the overwhelming support and am proud to represent the 9th District as Councilmember. Hopefully you've had a chance to see some of the great photos from that night. Click here to check them out. Once again, I would like to thank everyone for all of your support!
This week, join us for another fun Movie in the Park at Coolidge Park (352 E. Neece St., 90805) to watch Dolphin Tale 2. Bring a lawn chair, blanket, picnic style dinner, family and friends. Movie begins at dusk.
Neighbors who get to know each other & communicate are more likely to look out for one another, notice suspicious persons in the area, and are more apt to call & report suspicious activity and crime. Neighborhood involvement is the main concept of LBPD’s Community Watch Program & several Community Watch groups are already planning coordinated activities including: potlucks, barbecues, and ice cream socials.
From 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on August 4th, residents are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights, and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police in order to celebrate our 32nd Annual National Night Out. If you’re hosting a National Night Out event for your neighborhood and would like to request that a Police Department representative stop by, please contact our Patrol Division Neighborhood Services Specialist: North Division – Erika Moreno (562) 570-9825.
And lastly, I want to share there are two neighborhood association meetings scheduled for the week:
- Starr King Neighborhood Association - Wednesday, August 5th, 7:00 p.m. at Greater United Faith Apostolic (6934 Long Beach Blvd.)
- Houghton Park Neighborhood Association - Thursday, August 6th, 7:00 p.m. at Houghton Park Community Center (6301 Myrtle Ave.)
