SEASP Documents & Reference Materials

From 2014 to 2016, the City collaborated with the southeast Long Beach community to craft a contemporary vision for the 1,500-acre area with regard to land use, development standards, infrastructure, and mobility. With intensive outreach, analysis, and planning, the City ultimately drafted the new Southeast Area Specific Plan 2060 (SEASP), which was adopted by the City Council on Sep. 19, 2017. On October 8, 2020, the California Coastal Commission (CCC) held a hearing for the LCPA (LCPA No. 1-19 [LCP-5-LOB-19-0008-1]) in conjunction with the local adoption of SEASP. The CCC recommended certification of the LCPA with required modifications. The required CCC modifications were presented and adopted by the City Council on July 13, 2021. On September 8, 2021, the CCC certified SEASP. View the links below for more infomation.
