The Port of Long Beach has released a draft update for its Port Master Plan, a document that defines long-range goals and policies for land use and development at the nation’s second-busiest seaport.
The draft update and associated documents are available at www.polb.com/masterplanupdate. A meeting where the public can submit comments on the draft update will be held during the regular Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners meeting scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 26, at the Bob Foster Civic Chambers, Long Beach City Hall, 411 W. Ocean Blvd., Long Beach 90802.
The Port’s Master Plan was last comprehensively updated in 1990. The Master Plan Update is needed to incorporate previous amendments to the document and to reflect changes in the shipping industry, strategically manage resources and proactively prepare for future challenges to remain competitive in the rapidly-changing global economy.
As part of the Master Plan Update, the Port will soon release an Environmental Impact Report for the process, as required by state law.
Comments on the draft Port Master Plan Draft Update will be accepted through Monday, Sept. 30. Submit them in writing to Matt Plezia, Director of Master Planning, Port of Long Beach, 415 W. Ocean Blvd., Long Beach, CA 90802, or to email@example.com.
