9:30am | The public is invited to participate in the dedication of a new Public Art and Façade Improvement project in North Long Beach next Tuesday, December 28, featuring new landscaping and sidewalks and a large mosaic entitled “Paramount.”
Ninth District City Councilmember Steven Neal is hosting the dedication at 2400 Artesia Boulevard at 10:00am near the southwest intersection of Artesia and Paramount. The new area aims to be more appealing and accessible to pedestrians and the disabled. The large mosaic depicts petroleum workers in a harkening back to an industry that has been a local staple since the 1930’s.
“The improvements made at the Paramount Petroleum site create a corner that honors Long Beach’s petroleum workers while making the area more accessible to pedestrians,” said Councilmember Neal. “By participating in the RDA’s Commercial Façade Improvement Program, the Paramount Petroleum Corporation is demonstrating its commitment to being a good neighbor to the community.”
Funding for the project was provided by Paramount Petroleum and the Long Beach Redevelopment Agency.
