CCM NealDear Neighbors, 

 

Happy 4th of July folks! Welcome to another issue of "Inside District9," your weekly newsletter.

 

This is a short week, and I wanted to remind everyone that fireworks are illegal in the City of Long Beach.There are a number of free fireworks shows  the area, including the Queen Mary. For a list of safe fireworks shows, please click here http://www.safejuly4th.org/fw/fwshows.htm.

 

I also have a few updates for you. On Saturday, July 16 at the North Long Beach Community Center, we are conducting our Summer District Captain Training for all new District Captains and those who may have missed our last training. To join the program in time for the training, please RSVP with Kari Faithful at 562-570-6137.

 

Next, please mark your calendars for the North Long Beach Community Assembly, happening Saturday, July 23 at Houghton Park. This is a gathering of all North Long Beach residents to receive updates from neighorhood associations, city departments, and other community initiatives. It is also a platform for meeting new residents and building stronger better relationships with your neighbors.

 

Lastly, as you may have already heard, the State of California recently passed a budget that included the abolishment of Redevelopment Agencies. The Ninth District is entirely in a redevelopment project area, so there may be some impact to our progress here in th district. I am optimistic in our abilility to move forward with most of our high priority projects here in North Long Beach, such as the Library and the Restaurant Project. In the days and weeks to come, I will post information on the status of our development projects on our community website, www.insidedistrict9.com.

 

Thank you and have a great week.


 

Sincerely,

 

Steven Neal
Long Beach City Councilmember, Ninth District

Long Beach Graffiti Removal Programs

Graffiti ProgramThe City of Long Beach has a well-earned national reputation for its innovative and effective programs for controlling the modern blight of graffiti.

These include a Free Paint Program for property owners choosing to remove the graffiti themselves; a Graffiti Removal Program which utilizes a professional Paint Contractor to insure perfect paint match when necessary; and, a Graffiti Hot-line for citizens to report "graffiti sightings" or request free paint.


 





Free Paint Program

 

WHAT IS THE FREE PAINT PROGRAM?

The Free Paint Program provides free paint to be used specifically for removing graffiti from the exterior of buildings. 


WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR THE FREE PAINT PROGRAM?

Any owner or occupant of private property located in the City of Long Beach is eligible to receive free paint for the purpose of removing graffiti.


HOW DO I GET THE FREE PAINT?

Call the 24-hour GRAFFITI HOTLINE at (562) 570-2773. Leave your name, address, daytime telephone number, and the exact location of graffiti on the property that you own or occupy. City staff will then verify the location of graffiti. You will receive a voucher number and information on how to pick up your free paint. 


Graffiti Removal Program


WHAT IS THE GRAFFITI REMOVAL PROGRAM?

It is a City-operated program to remove graffiti from private property as quickly as possible in order to improve neighborhoods and discourage further graffiti. The program is offered citywide at no cost to property owners or tenants.


HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK?

Just call the 24-hour GRAFFITI HOTLINE at (562) 570-2773. Leave your name, address, daytime phone number, and the exact location of graffiti on your property. After we have your written consent to remove graffiti from the property, a licensed painting contractor or volunteers will remove the graffiti within about two weeks. Every effort will be made to match colors, but the cleaned, processed, or coated area may not match precisely.


WHAT PROPERTIES ARE ELIGIBLE FOR THE PROGRAM?

Properties eligible for continuous removal services are limited to single-family homes, apartment buildings of 4 units or less, and small neighborhood serving commercial/retail buildings of less than 2,000 square feet.


WILL ALL GRAFFITI BE REMOVED FROM MY PROPERTY?

Graffiti will be removed only from portions of the property visible from a street. In alleyways, graffiti will be removed only within 100 feet of the alley entrance as measured from the street curb.


CAN I GET FREE PAINT TO REMOVE THE GRAFFITI?

Yes! The City encourages private citizens individually or collectively to remove graffiti from private property. Such efforts expedite removal of graffiti and can significantly reduce the expenditure of public funds. 


Call the 24-hour GRAFFITI HOTLINE at (562) 570-2773. Leave your name, address, daytime telephone number, and the exact location of graffiti on the property that you own or occupy. City staff will then verify the location of graffiti. You will receive a voucher number and information on how to pick up your free paint.


HOW DO I REPORT GRAFFITI ON OTHER PROPERTY?

Just call the GRAFFITI HOTLINE. Report the exact address location of the graffiti, your name, address, and daytime telephone number. City staff will then contact the property owner to obtain consent to have the graffiti removed.

'South Street Makes Sense' Redistricting Town Hall - Recap

 

 

Redistricting Town Hall Recap  

 

Dear Friends and Neighbors, 

 

On Tuesday night at Ramona Park, we hosted a very important Town Hall meeting for North Long Beach residents to discuss the upcoming redistricting process.

 

More than 50 North Long Beach residents showed up and participated in an exercise to draw the new boundaries of our district. I am pleased to report the results of that meeting.

 

You sent a very clear message. The overwhelming majority of the residents agreed that it made the most sense to bring the district into balance by "cleaning up" South Street - maintaining the South Street border by straightening it up on the far east and far west sides of the district.  

 

 

  


 

That's why I am inviting you to attend the next Long Beach City Council meeting on Tuesday, June 7, as the first district map concepts are presented to the City Council, to declare that "South Street Makes Sense."

Residential Energy Rebate Program  

 

Rebates 

 

As part of the City of Long Beach's effort to create and implement strategies to reduce total energy use, improve energy efficiency in buildings and reduce fossil fuel emissions, the City is launching a Residential Energy Efficiency Rebate Program. This program will be administered by the Department of Development Services and will be available beginning Monday, April 19, 2010 to applicants who install qualifying energy efficient products such as Energy Star rated solar hot water-heaters, tank-less water-heaters, windows, doors, skylights and roofs.

To be eligible to participate in the Residential Energy Efficiency Rebate Program, applicants must be the owner of a single-family residence, condominium, or live/work unit in the City of Long Beach where the qualified energy efficient product is to be installed. Residential owners who are eligible for the Rebate Program are entitled to the following incentives:

 

  • Rebate of up to a maximum of $500 for the cost of one qualifying energy efficiency product.
  • No-cost permit to inspect the installation of the qualifying energy efficient product.

The Rebate Program is limited to any of the qualifying energy efficient products: 

 

  • Energy Star Solar Hot Water Heater Products.
  • Energy Star Tank-Less Hot Water Heater Products.
  • Energy Star Door, Window and Skylight Products.
  • Energy Star Roof Products.

The Residential Energy Efficiency Rebate Program is subject to funding availability and rebates and no-cost permits are available for a limited time only. The Residential Energy Efficiency Rebate Program rebates and no-cost permits are provided on a first come, first serve basis, as determined by the permit application date.

The rebate program helps the City of Long Beach achieve its energy reduction and greenhouse gas reduction goals in the City's Sustainable City Action Plan and creates significant savings on homeowners' electric bills.

These rebates are made possible by funds from the U.S. Department of Energy's Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program (EECBG) through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. 

For more information about the program, contact Dale Wiersma at Dale.Wiersma@longbeach.gov or (562) 570-6737.

Call 811 To Know What's Below Before You Dig  

 

811 

 Building a deck? Planting a tree? Installing a mailbox? 811 is the new number you should call before you begin any digging project.

 

A new, federally-mandated national "Call Before You Dig" number, 811 was created to help protect you from unintentionally hitting underground utility lines while working on digging projects. People digging often make risky assumptions about whether or not they should get their utility lines marked due to concerns about project delays, costs and previous calls about other projects. These assumptions can be life-threatening.

 

Every digging job requires a call - even small projects like planting trees or shrubs. If you hit an underground utility line while digging, you can harm yourself or those around you, disrupt service to an entire neighborhood and potentially be responsible for fines and repair costs.

To learn more please visit http://www.call811.com/default.aspx.

 The Aquatic Center is partnering with Coca Cola to provide families with a health and fitness program. The program focus is to assist families with weight loss, lowered cholesterol or blood sugar, increased physical activity, increased time spent together, and/or improved nutrition.

In addition, each family will receive $200. This is an eight week program to provide a great opportunity to the community to promote better health and fitness to children and adults.

City Of Long Beach Tree Partnership Tree Planting Program

 

The 9th District is presented with an opportunity to plant 100 trees throughout the community with the assistance of the Tree Partnership Tree Planting Program Grant from the South Coast Air Quality Management District. Trees planted through this grant must be planted on public property and can be planted either by individuals or neighborhood groups.

We are calling 9th District residents and neighborhood groups to action by recommending locations to plant trees. Here are the requirements when considering your recommendation:    

  

1.      All trees must be planted on city-owned, public property such as parkways between streets and sidewalks.

2.      All property owners will be required to agree to maintain a planted tree by signing a tree maintenance agreement form prior to the planting of any tree.

3.      All trees require a planting permit from the Department of Public Works.

4.      Community groups organizing a tree planting will be responsible for accounting and submitting documentation of volunteer hours.

5.      Community groups requesting assistance with labor for tree planting should contact our office for more information. The grant only provides funding for trees and planting supplies and does not include funding for tree or concrete removal, establishing new tree wells, etc.

 

Please contact the 9th District Council at 562-570-6139 or district9@longbeach.gov with your recommendations.
