And that's a wrap...Release Date: 2019-07-26
Today at noon, the final two city employees - City Manager Pat West and I - left the Long Beach City Hall that’s been the center of civic life in this community for 43 years. We’re all moving into our new home, just across the street, in the brand new Civic Center.
The new building and plaza are not only environmentally sustainable, with improved security and up-to-date seismic stability, they are also more open and welcoming, and more accessible from the surrounding neighborhoods.
To me, this building symbolizes the new Long Beach - modern, bold, open, and looking toward the future.
While we’ll certainly miss our old building, we are excited to get back to work Monday at 411 West Ocean, to continue serving the residents of Long Beach.
I hope to see you at the Grand Opening Monday evening at 6!
