Vote Now to Improve Park Access in Long Beach!

Release Date: 2016-10-20

The People’s Planning School (PPS) is a multi-sector approach to connect resident leaders with government and community-based organization resources (CBOs) to activate open space and parks in the Drake neighborhood and surrounding areas.  Authentic resident engagement is critical to develop a community vision for safe parks that support early childhood, inter-generational play, and reduced neighborhood violence.

The three project goals of the People’s Planning School are to: 

  1. Build resident capacity to advocate for increased access and resources to parks and open spaces;
  2. Increase the rate of resident and partner organization volunteerism at parks and open spaces; and
  3. Increase communication between government, CBOs and residents on the use of vibrant park spaces in Drake Park and surrounding communities.
