latest news


North Long Beach came alive on Saturday for the first Beach Streets Uptown Open Street event.  The traffic free streets were open for pedestrians, bicyclists, live performances, fun activities and vendors to entertain the masses.  Beach Streets Uptown kicked off at 9am on the corner of Wardlow Rd. and Atlantic Ave. introducing the "Go Uptown," app.

The Coalition for a Healthy North Long Beach, funding from Kaiser Permanente, the City of Long Beach’s Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Public Works and my office created the Go Uptown app to help people explore all the concerts, festivals, restaurant specials, Zumba classes, art activities, and more during the inaugural Beach Streets Open Street event.  The application will also help the Uptown community by connecting residents and users with instant access to a range of resources, from recreational activities in parks and libraries to special deals for individuals who walk or bike to our local businesses.
