Community Invited to Provide Input on SEADIP Update
Angela Reynolds, Deputy Director
Long Beach Development Services

The City of Long Beach is in the process of updating the zoning code historically known as the Southeast Area Development and Improvement Plan (SEADIP), and the public is invited to provide input on key elements of the new plan that will affect 1,500 acres of southeast Long Beach.

A scoping meeting has been scheduled for Wednesday, November 4, 2015, at 6:00 pm at the Best Western Golden Sails Hotel Seafarer Room, 6285 E. Pacific Coast Highway.

The event will focus on the environmental review process and discuss topics to be addressed in the draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR). The event will also provide the community and local stakeholders with an opportunity to review and comment on the scope and content of the draft EIR.

The City will begin preparation of a draft EIR for the SEADIP update to meet California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) requirements, in relation to aesthetics; air quality; greenhouse gas emissions; land use and planning; noise, population and housing; public services and utilities; transportation/traffic; and other environmental impacts.

A Notice of Preparation (NOP) and accompanying Initial Study (IS) are available for public viewing at

The City of Long Beach will accept written comments relating to the draft EIR through November 20, 2015. All comments will be addressed in the final EIR. Comments should be sent to Craig Chalfant, Planner, Long Beach Development Services, 411 W. Ocean Blvd., 5th Floor, Long Beach, CA 90802, by facsimile to 562.570.6068, or by e-mail at
