Long Beach Seeks Input on Noise and Air Quality

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Port of Long Beach is seeking proposal for parks projects that would help dampen port-related noise and air quality issues in adjacent neighborhoods. Chosen projects will be funded through the Community Grants Program.

So far, the program has awarded more than $8 million in grants. Paired with a previous grant program, the port has contributed $25.8 million to local environmental initiatives.

Concept papers must be submitted online. The application deadline is 4 p.m. on May 1.
