The City of Long Beach is preparing the Globemaster Corridor Specific Plan, and the community and stakeholders are invited to participate and provide input on this important effort. The new plan will guide future land use for the Globemaster Corridor, an area encompassing the former Boeing C-17 manufacturing site and the surrounding commercial and industrial corridors, including a portion of Cherry Avenue between Spring Street and Carson Street, and Spring Street between Orange Avenue and Redondo Avenue.

“The Globemaster Corridor Specific Plan will provide a unique opportunity to build the City’s economy and support workforce growth while planning the transition of the former Boeing C-17 site,” said Mayor Robert Garcia. “It’s important for the community to get involved in the process and help shape plans for the future of the project area along Cherry Avenue and Spring Street.”

The public is invited to attend the third and final community and stakeholder workshop on Wednesday, September 26, 2018, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Hughes Middle School Cafeteria, 3846 California Ave. 

The workshop will feature an interactive presentation of the draft plan, and offer opportunities for attendees to provide input on the draft plan document. The event will also include an environmental impact report (EIR) scoping meeting to provide opportunities for the public to offer input on potentially impacted areas that will be included in the draft plan.  

In 2015, the City was awarded a $3.9 million U.S. Department of Defense Office of Economic Adjustment grant for the C-17 Transition Master Plan. Implementation efforts for the grant include developing a comprehensive transition plan for the closure of the Boeing C-17 production facilities, its workforce, and businesses within the region’s manufacturing cluster.
