City of LB makes sustainable plan available for public response

The City of Long Beach Draft Sustainable City Action Plan is available for public comment. The Sustainable City Commission, which advises the City Council on environmental issues such as buildings and neighborhoods, urban nature, transportation, water, energy, waste reduction and green economy and lifestyle, is responsible for creating a Sustainable City Action Plan.
This Draft Sustainable City Action Plan is a comprehensive, citywide framework and is intended to be a tool for creating a sustainable city by helping to guide future operational and policy decisions. The Draft Plan was developed during the last seven months at public Sustainable City Commission meetings and has had input from Departments across the city, including the Port of Long Beach and the Water Department.
The Draft Plan is available on the city’s website along with an online survey designed to solicit feedback from the community. The Draft Plan will be available for comment until September 30. Staff will be conducting additional community outreach over the summer months, attending community meetings to present the Draft Plan. It is anticipated that it and all community comments will return to the Council’s Environmental Committee and the City Council in Fall 2009.
