Alamitos Bay Parking & Circulation Master Plan 

Alamitos Bay has been a popular destination for locals and visitors alike since it opened in the 1950s. Recent renovations and new businesses have sparked even more success for the area, including an investment of $105 million to upgrade the marina and exciting new real estate development. This success has resulted in an increased demand for parking during certain days and times, and the need for pedestrian and bicycle improvements along Alamitos Bay. The City of Long Beach and its partners are working to continually enhance mobility in the area by maximizing the number of parking spaces and improving the design and circulation of the parking lots and adjacent areas. To achieve these goals, the City is developing the Alamitos Bay Parking and Circulation Master Plan (Master Plan). The development of the Master Plan will include analysis from parking and circulation experts and significant community and stakeholder engagement.

Several pilot programs have been implemented to determine what types of initiatives improve mobility in the area. Based on the results of these pilot programs, the initiatives may become recommendations in the Master Plan. The Master Plan may include improvements such as a free shuttle service, a seasonal valet program, increased security and parking enforcement, and additional parking spaces. The improvements resulting from this plan will greatly enhance the experience of those visiting the area, including businesses, employees, customers, boat owners, neighboring residents, and other members of the public who are visiting this great community asset.
