Latest News & Updates
Southeast Area Specific Plan Initial Study Now Available for Public Review! In compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), an Initial Study and Notice of Preparation (IS/NOP) has been prepared for the Southeast Area Specific Plan (Project) and circulated for a 30-day public review period. The IS/NOP announces that an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) will be prepared for the Project and that a scoping meeting will be held. The scoping meeting will describe the Project, the CEQA process, the purpose of the IS/NOP and upcoming EIR, and offer an opportunity for members of the public and other interested parties to comment on the environmental "scope" (or breath of topics and issues) that will be analyzed in the EIR.
EIR Scoping Meeting Presentation
An EIR Scoping Meeting was held on November 4, 2015 at the Best Western Golden Sails Hotel, that provided a brief review of the efforts completed over the past year and a review of the CEQA process topics that will be studied for potential impact in the Environmental Impact Report. The purpose of the meeting was to focus on the environmental analyses that will be completed in association with the project. The project specifics (land use, roadway configuration, design, relationship to wetlands, etc.) will be discussed in future meetings once the Specific Plan Draft has been completed.
A New Plan for Southeast Long Beach!
The City of Long Beach has begun a new effort to comprehensively review and update the project historically known as the Southeast Area Development and Improvement Plan (SEADIP), an area covering 1,500-acres of southeast Long Beach.
This significant undertaking offers a unique opportunity to creatively balance responsible growth with resource preservation, and establish a thoughtful framework to guide strategic changes in this important gateway into our City.
This effort will take a fresh look at this area, acknowledging work conducted through previous efforts but with a new approach. The end-result will be a plan that maintains valuable natural resources, customizes land uses and development standards, and identifies locations for future development and expanded transportation choices. The project also includes an update to the City's Local Coastal Plan.
Your input to the new plan is important to us. Find out how you can be involved.
