Talk to the Port of Long Beach

By Karen Robes Meeks

The public is invited to the Port of Long Beach’s “Let’s Talk Port” event on Oct. 24.

The community forum – which will feature a presentation, displays and opportunities for one-on-one with port officials and consultants – will allow folks to weigh in on the Port Master Plan, which has not been updated since 1990. The plan, which maps out the port’s long-term goals for land use and development, will need to consider changes in technology, the shipping industry and other factors.

The event will take place from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at Silverado Park, 1545 W. 31st Street in Long Beach, California.

Reserve your spot by Oct. 23 at www.polb.com/letstalkport. Contact Jocelin Padilla at jocelin.padilla@polb.com or 562-283-7722.
