Long Beach Housing and Traffic


City government sometimes gets lost in the shuffle of the more immediate concerns of day-to-day life, foreclosures, media coverage of housing, more foreclosures and homeland security. But it shouldn't be, because your local areas are often under one sort of study or another over a period of years.


The traffic congestion in the area of 2nd St and Pacific Coast Highway yesterday afternoon was huge coming through Belmont Shore, over the bridge towards the 405 Freeway after the conclusion of weekend recreational events along the shoreline. What perhaps a lot of people don't know is that this intersection has been the subject of a study called the South East Area Development Improvement Plan since the 1970s, a study that has been in the process of renewal and updating, and broadcast at local community meetings. The latest studies include wetlands restoration, bike paths, changes in local shopping areas, and the addition of new housing. Lennar Homes, for instance, has had a proposal for housing development in the location of the Seaport Marina Hotel for some time. Take a look at this informative slide show by the City's SEADIP Advisory Committee for ideas that may impact your living, driving, biking or shopping in that area.
