Councilman Rex Richardson called for a renaissance in North Long Beach Wednesday at his State of the Ninth District address.

His “Roadmap to the Renaissance” is composed of three main areas of focus: parks and open space; revitalization of Artesia Boulevard and rethinking Atlantic Avenue.

Councilmember Rex Richardson's Weekly Letter

We had a wonderful time honoring our military family and friends this past weekend at the 19th Annual Veterans Day Parade and Veterans Festival 2015 at Houghton Park. Thank you to the Parade Committee and the Festival Committee for all of your hard work throughout the year to put on such fun and meaningful events for our community.  You can view more images from the events here.

This week, we have two different events that I'd like to encourage you to attend.  Tonight, Monday, Nov. 9th, we will host our Roadmap to the Renaissance:  Infrastructure Community Update at Houghton Park from 6:00-8:00 p.m.  We will be providing an update on the Library construction, and picking up the discussion on our Houghton Park Community Center design process.

Now that we are in Phase II of the Creative Corridor Challenge, we will be developing corridor committees, and further planning project proposals.  If you are interested in being a part of a corridor committee, join us at the team development meeting this Tuesday, November 10th, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the District 9 Field Office (6509 Gundry Ave.).  For more information, call our office at (562) 570-6137 or visit the Creative Corridor Challenge page on Facebook.
