The City has released revised Land Use Element (LUE) maps for community review. The revised maps are to meet the projected job and housing needs, as well as address concerns related to height, density, additional housing units and traffic. The revised maps reflect changes that modified multi-use designations to commercial designations, proposed height reductions in several areas, and lighter intensity uses throughout. The revised maps reflect a reduction in density of 686 acres through height-reduction and modified land-use designations.
Input to the revised maps can be emailed at LUEUDE2040@longbeach.gov. The Planning Commission will consider these revised maps on December 11, 2017. Go to www.longbeach.gov/lueude2040 for more information; to get involved; to learn the facts; and to gain a better understanding of this effort.
