The once-renowned Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool, the host of the 1968 and 1976 Olympic Trials, is no longer around, but plans for its replacement are still in their infancy. About a year after the city hosted its last conceptual design meeting, the City of Long Beach is inviting residents to view the proposed design of the new facility, the next phase of the process to build new Belmont Beach and Aquatic Center.
The City of Long Beach will hold its fourth and last community workshop on the Green Terminal Island Freeway Transition Plan on Saturday morning. The project is meant to convert an under-utilized truck corridor adjacent to several West Long Beach neighborhoods into a local-serving road with an associated greenbelt.
Mayor Robert Garcia announced his request for the Long Beach City Council to guide the city manager in formally updating the Long Beach “River Link” plan to include more recent developments, such as the LA River Revitalization Corporation's partnership with Frank Gehry and his associates, with the goal of exploring a comprehensive vision for the entire 51 miles of the river.
