Deputy Director
Long Beach Development Services

The public is encouraged to attend a Planning Commission Study Session for the Southeast Area Development and Improvement Plan (SEADIP) update on Thursday, May 21, 2015, at 5:00 p.m., in the City Council Chambers in Long Beach City Hall at 411 W. Ocean Blvd.

The Study Session will feature a presentation of the community-shaped vision for SEADIP and the conceptual land use plan, including general locations and types of commercial, residential, industrial, mixed-use, and wetlands uses. The event will also provide an overview of input received at previous community workshops, and discuss the next steps for developing a Specific Plan. No formal action will be taken by the Planning Commission at this meeting.

The conceptual land use plan reflects the collaborative efforts of the community and the Community Advisory Committee (CAC) to comprehensively review and update a 1,500-acre area of Southeast Long Beach known as SEADIP. The three-year planning process includes extensive community outreach efforts, consisting of pop-up events, interactive workshops, and community meetings.
