Residents in the Starr King neighborhood should be proud to learn that Governor Jerry Brown visited a solar panel installation on 69th Street.
This was the sixth solar panel installation in our area, made possible by GRID Alternatives, a non-profit that provides alternative energy solutions for low-income families. We have some great photos and news coverage below, so please take a look.
Secondly, the first week of June is "Be S.A.F.E. Long Beach Week!" S.A.F.E. is an acronym for "Summer Activities in a Friendly Environment." Join youth, parents, community organizations, clergy, police officers and firefighters for an exciting week of activities, urging a summer of unity, peace, public safety, and opportunities for youth in the community.
It begins with a citywide community meeting on the Violence Prevention Plan at Jordan High School, includes a week of activities for the entire community, and ends with the Citywide Gun Buy Back event at the North Police Station.
Last week, the proposed Alcohol Nuisance Abatement Ordinance returned to the Planning Commission for consideration. City staff provided a report outlining the process to implement the ordinance, starting with north Long Beach north of Del Amo Blvd. The Commissioners had a good discussion, provided input, and approved forwarding the ordinance to the City Council for approval.
This is great news for North Long Beach, as we are one step closer to addressing some of the historically blighted nuisance liquor stores in our community. In July, the city council will have an opportunity to finally approve and implement this ordinance. Stay tuned.
Lastly, this Saturday, the College Square Neighborhood Association is hosting a neighborhood clean-up at 8AM at 6912 Gale Avenue. For more information about this or anything else in the message, feel free to contact our office at 562-570-6137.
Here are this week's neighborhood meetings:
Cherry Manor Community Watch - 7PM - Light and Life Cherry Campus, 6465 Cherry Ave.
Have a great week,
