A little over a year ago I asked readers to submit ideas for the Top Ten Worst Decisions in Long Beach History. Having identified those fateful, course-changing events for the city, my question then was “now what?”
Since then I have touched upon the need for the city to be bold, and to shift our collective thinking, to realize the opportunities that Long Beach’s geography, location and built form provides. Now, I am charging the readers to help develop ten bold visions for Long Beach to become the great city many of us know it can be.
How would you alter the city’s built environment for the better? Would it include removing the breakwater? Restoring the Los Cerritos Wetlands? Or do you have a bold idea to share?
The final list will be selected by a committee made up of LBPOST.com writers and the managing editor.
