Welcome May!
Public Safety doesn't just mean police officers, and fire engines, it also means traffic safety, in the form of new stop signs, crosswalks, red curbs, and traffic calming measures. We often get calls from residents who are fed up with high speeds on the streets around their homes. When we get such complaints, we always reach out to the traffic engineers and ask them to conduct speed surveys and make recommendations to reduce or "calm" speeds.
One effective way of reducing traffic speeds is referred to as "a road diet" (removal of one traffic lane). When my office announced that we would be implementing a "road diet" on Ocean Blvd. many residents were upset. People wrote me daily to share concerns about their property values being impacted negatively as a result of the road diet, or fears that they would be caught in congestion for extended periods of time, or that bicyclists would be hit with cars backing out of the new diagonal parking spaces.
By all account, however, the road diet on Ocean, which was implemented in December 2016, has proven to be very effective in the goal of reducing speeds, with very little negative impact. That project reduced the 85 th percentile traffic speeds from over 40 MPH prior to the implementation of the road diet to 34-33 MPH, now. That means 85% of cars are now traveling between 34-33 MPH as opposed to 40 MPH prior to the change. This change is truly significant as it represents a huge improvement in the likelihood that a pedestrian would survive a collision. At 40 MPH only about 15% of pedestrians would survive a collision whereas at 35 MPH that percentage is more than doubled.  The increase in commute time from Livingston and Ocean to 54th and Ocean was 14 seconds at peek commute times.
So, after the success of Belmont Shore's road diet on Ocean Blvd, the City will be implementing a road diet to the Peninsula with construction beginning May 7 th. This topic has been presented and discussed with Peninsula residents for months and we are finally prepared to begin construction.
For years there have been serious concerns expressed from Peninsula residents about traffic speeds and the need for added safety. As a result of those consistent resident concerns I asked the City Traffic Engineer to conduct a traffic study of the Peninsula and make his professional recommendations on how traffic safety can be improved. From the traffic analysis conducted, the removal of one lane in each direction was the best method to improve safety for drivers as well as pedestrians by reducing traffic speeds. This will make Ocean Blvd. feel more like the residential street and not a two lane highway like PCH or 7th Street. Our City Engineer found that with the volume of traffic, the Peninsula does not warrant two lanes in each direction. Two lanes can serve 20,000 vehicles a day, which is much less than what is actually being traveling on the Peninsula daily.
Wide roads and wide lanes make drivers feel like they are free to drive more quickly, and pay less attention to other cars, intersections, driveways, cyclists, and pedestrians which leads to decreased safety. With only one lane, cars cannot weave around other vehicles to speed through traffic, and narrower lanes mean cars drive more cautiously in order to remain in their lane. The Peninsula is a residential neighborhood that leads to a dead-end making two lanes in each direction unnecessary. If you look at other roadways in Long Beach with two lanes in each direction you see roads like PCH, like Anaheim, like 7 th Street, all of those are not residential streets, and people drive them like the highways they are. You see higher traffic speeds on streets like this, and these speeds are not appropriate for residential neighborhoods like the Peninsula. By reducing the number of traffic lanes traffic speeds will be reduced, visibility will be improved, and it will create additional safety for drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists.
This project is expected to provide a real increase in safety. With traffic, shifted farther from the curb, there will be improved visibility for cars and pedestrians onto Ocean Blvd. from garages and cross streets. There will also be upgrades to pedestrian crossings, and signage to improve driver awareness. Additionally, bicycles currently ride as far to the right as possible, hugging parked cars. With the new bike lane cyclists will be riding further from the curb, making them less likely to be struck by an opening door or vehicle backing out of a garage and leads to more predictable cyclist behaviors. And most importantly, it is expected to reduce traffic speeds improving safety for everyone along this street.

Too often the City gets criticized for not being responsive to resident concerns, but here we have a project that was born out of the community, and a desire for the Peninsula neighborhood to improve safety. And the data that has been collected proves that these changes will, in fact, work to make Ocean Blvd. a safer street by reducing speeds.
Please feel free to contact my office any time with any additional questions or concerns on this or any other topic. Although we may not see eye to eye on this or other issues, I work very hard to help solve issues that are brought to the attention of my office.
I look forward to your continued engagement.
Thank you!

Make Music Long Beach is coming June 21, 2018

Make Music is an annual celebration of music around the world that happens on Summer Solstice. Launched in 1982 in Paris as the Fête de la Musique, it is now held on the same day in more than 750 cities in 120 countries.

Long Beach is joining the celebration with music in a variety of spaces across the city. You can be a part of it!

Long Beach businesses are invited to host a free music event as part of Make Music Long Beach. Go to  www.makemusiclb.org to sign up and for more information. There's no fee to participate. 
The event is spearheaded by the Arts Council of Long Beach and the Long Beach Music Council.

The city hosted the first of a series of  meetings to gain input from the community about the topic of short-term rentals. As the city begins the discussion to develop a short-term rental program, a consultant has been brought on board to take input from the community and present City Council with recommendations based on that input. The first meeting was hosted right here in the Third District and it was standing room only. The input that was given from community members was productive and respected by all in attendance.

If you were unable to attend the meeting, the city will be hosting more meetings to give the community additional opportunities to take part in the discussion.  You can also provide your comments or input by submitting it directly to kjell.stava@longbeach.gov.   I encourage everyone to take part in this important discussion and let your voice be heard.

The next meeting will be held on Saturday, July 21st from 10am to noon. Location has yet to be determined. Please go to: www.lbds.info/lbshorttermrental for updates and more information.

On Saturday, April 21st at the beautiful "Egg" auditorium located at the VA Center in Long Beach, the GirlsLead Academy hosted a special seminar on Sexual Harassment designed to reach middle school students and their parents.  Councilwoman Suzie Price welcomed the audience and shared a relevant and personal sexual harassment experience she lived through as a young women in the workplace.
Six girls from the GirlsLead Academy introduced the three groups that presented invaluable information to include the definition of sexual harassment, prevention techniques and tips on how to report it or help others if witnessing a sexual harassment incident at school or off campus.  A video, Flirting or Hurting was shown followed by a Q & A session.  Program Managers from the YWCA South Bay Empowerment Center, Youth Program Advocates from Interval House and the President of Safe Kids, Inc., all volunteered their time to speak and present their unique perspective on the topic.  Each group left brochures or flyers which provided information and resources for further outreach.  Snacks and drinks were donated by the Long Beach Hospitality Alliance.
"There is a guy who texts me all the time telling me I look pretty and saying nice things but I don't like him and it's starting to get weird.  I have asked him to stop but he keeps saying he wants to do stuff with me.  I try to avoid him at school but he still has my number."  This was one of seven anonymous quotes read out loud by the individual GirlsLead members in an effort to bring forward real life situations to this audience.  These statements were from participants sharing their struggles of sexual harassment during a previous youth group discussion at Interval House.  
The GirlsLead Academy is a pilot program initiated by Councilwoman Price's office to empower high school girls through organizing and working as a team with the end-goal of executing a project of their choice that would make a difference in the community. Overall, Councilwoman Price is so please with the girls that make up the GirlsLead Academy.  They  work hard to develop their leadership experience while discovering issues that affect their world.  The sexual harassment  seminar  was just one of the community impact projects that these girls feel passionately about.  

A special thank you to Carmen Tunis, Yesmean Rihbany and Monica Waldau for helping the girls execute this important seminar.  We couldn't have done it without you.

On April 27 a very special ribbon cutting took place at Alamitos Bay Marina celebrating the City's completion of a $105 million redevelopment of 1,646 single-berth slips.  Nina Moussavi and I were present during the festivities.
Alamitos Bay Marina is Long Beach's largest marina and the rebuild project involved many entities including the California Coastal Commission, California's Division of Boating and Waterways, City of Long Beach staff, and City of Long Beach Marine Advisory Commission. The slips generate $22 million in slip revenue annually.  Adding another $52 million in direct and indirect revenue from Long Beach's boating venues that are infused into the local economy each year. 
Bellingham Marine took on the million dollar project and many slip renters are thrilled with the rounded slip fingers, ADA accessible gangways and in-slip pump out systems. 

The docks are open until sunset each night so make a point of checking out the finished project!

As summer quickly approaches, the Tidelands Division; Public Works Department; Parks, Recreation, and Marine Department; and many others are working hard to make improvements to the coastal region and all over the community. We have seen a tremendous amount of progress in 2018, so far, and this is just the beginning. I wanted
to take a moment to highlight some of the projects that have been completed thanks to the hard work of City Staff and a strong collaboration with the community.

We have a brand new park right here in the heart of the Third District, the Red Car Greenbelt, which is open for enjoyment and blooming with native wildflowers.
We completed the Marine Stadium Judging Stand Renovation. This structure stands as a symbol of the spirit of sport in our coastal community and it was in much need of some overdue attention. The building now represent a renewed commitment to a treasured area of the City.

We also completed the Colorado Lagoon Restroom Renovation, just one in a series of steps that have been taken to restore the Colorado Lagoon so it can be enjoyed by the community for decades to come. If you take a look inside, you will see that the beauty is in the details of the murals on the walls.

Along Ocean Blvd, we completed a resurfacing and reconfiguration project at the Granada Beach Parking Lot and soon there will be Electric Vehicle charging stations in those parking lots.

We look forward to seeing the community enjoy the result of these projects whether it is walking your dog at the Red Car Greenbelt or plugging in your Electric Vehicle while you enjoy the coastline. These are just a few of the many projects that we have completed in 2018.

In the next few months, you can expect to see even more of those projects come to fruition. As many of you have noticed, there has been work going on along Bellflower Blvd from Atherton to Loynes Dr. This project consists of
resurfacing the road, as well as the addition of a protected bike lane to provide safe routes to school and work for the community. The Bellflower Blvd project is targeted to be completed by the end o f May.

Down at Bayshore, crews are hard at work rebuilding the Leeway Pier, Dock, and Shed. This facility is utilized throughout the year by young sailors learning how to sail their first boat, paddle boarders looking to enjoy the perfect weather on the water, and kayakers launching off for a ride around the canals. Earlier this year, we painted the outside of the Leeway Sailing Center, bringing a bold and renewed touch to an active corner of the bay; with a rebuild of the rest of the pier, dock, and shed, we are ensuring that generations to come will have the opportunity to splash into the summer off a safe pier.  This
project is on track to be completed by Memorial Day Weekend!

As we address public safety concerns that arise throughout the community, we are working to make our streets and neighborhoods 
safer. Ocean Blvd between 55 th  and  72 nd  Place will be getting a re-striping and reconfiguration. New lane markings on Ocean Blvd from 55 th  Place to 72 nd  Place  will shift traffic farther from garages and cross traffic. The new markings include higher-visibility crosswalks and new bike lanes. 

These are just a few of the many exciting projects that we have  planned and I want to thank you for your patience and support as we continue to make major progress in the Third District. Often times, construction projects can cause temporary inconveniences to your daily commute or your quiet morning, but the end results will bring a positive contribution to our beautiful community.

Most business owners must have a passion that is unmistakable in order to be committed to the time and effort it will take to open and grow their business. They work so hard to make their dreams come true, and certainly take a personal interest in every detail that goes into making their business a success.  That is certainly the case with the owners of Lacquered on Broadway.  The Canadian-Vietnamese husband and wife team have recently opened a rotisserie chicken shop in Belmont Heights that looks fun and tasty.

Chef Diana Vu and Chef Scott McDonough have combined their culinary efforts at Lacquered.  They use whole certified organic chickens from California that are brined for up to 8-10 hours and then hung and dried overnight.  Brushing them with a special sauce gives reference to the name, "lacquered."  Let's support our newest restaurant in the 3rd DIstrict!

Some days there are city council meetings where big citywide and nationwide issues are discussed with hours of public comment and front page headlines the next morning. But then the rest of the week there are small pieces of progress that make the community a little bit better for residents occurring throughout the city. This is one of those small yet important items. Last week a new flashing beacon was installed at the crosswalk on Eliot between Marina Vista Park and Marine Stadium. This is a busy area for pedestrians during weekend little league and soccer games, as well as when there are farmers markets and concerts in the park. So, even though this small improvement won't be on the front page of the Press Telegram, it will have a real impact on many residents and is part of the continuous progress the Councilwoman is committed to as we work to always be improving public safety for all residents.

National Bike Month is May and our office is taking part in Bike to Work Week on May 17th by hosting a pit stop on your route to work. In the U.S., 40% of all trips that we take in our day are less than two miles away, this makes bicycling a practical and fun way to get to work, school, your local farmer's market, or anywhere else your day may take you.

For National Bike Month, the City is excited to announce a calendar of events including: a bicycle Roundtable, bike to school day, free bike tune-ups, and a Taco Tuesday promotion! I encourage you to check out the calendar and participate in some of the great events that are planned. The City is working hard to provide safe routes to school and work by improving bike infrastructure for the community. What better time is there to try out some of that new infrastructure than during National Bike Month? For Bike to Work Week, our office will set up a pit stop on the morning of May 17th between 7am and 9am with snacks and goodies to help you on your trip to work! Stop by our Field Office at 340 Nieto Ave on your morning commute and grab an energy bar and some information about National Bike Month!

Public Safety Dispatch System 
Replaced and upgraded the Public Safety Dispatch radio system, including consoles,microwave network, and the core system with new up-to-date technology.  The Police, Fire, Public Works, Parks, Recreation and Marine, Disaster Preparedness, Airport, Gas, and Port all rely on this equipment for day-to-day and emergency response radio communications. The upgraded equipment is compatible with other Los Angeles County law and fire agencies, which will allow for interoperable communications and coordination within the region in the event of a disaster.

Cost: $7 million (No cost to the City)                                

9-1-1 Telephone System
Replaced and upgraded the 9-1-1 emergency communications telephone system,
which residents use to call for police, fire, or emergency medical services. The upgrade comes with several advantages in how 9-1-1 calls are handled, including streamlining call processing, integrated Text-to-9-1-1
capabilities, and other Next Generation 9-1-1services still in development, including photos and videos to 9-1-1.

Cost: $1.2 million (No cost to the City)                          

AlertLongBeachis a free emergency notification system designed to keep those who live or work in Long Beach informed of important information before, during, and after a
major emergency or disaster. This alerting system allows residents to register their cell phone, e-mail address, and text message information to ensure they receive emergency alerts. Alert messages inform registered users of what has happened, what first responders are doing, and what actions residents should take to protect themselves and preserve property.Messages can be sent in various languages including English, Spanish, and Tagalog.
Cost: $100,000 annually (No cost to the City)           
AlertLongBeach- Accessible Alerts
AlertLongBeach was upgraded to be able to send American Sign Language videos with English voice and text over video.  This improvement allowed Long Beach to becomethe first city in Los Angeles County to provide emergency alert messages to residents who are deaf, blind, or hard of hearing in accessible formats. 
Cost: $49,000 annually (No cost to the City)               
Text to 9-1-1
Earlier this year the City implemented Text-to-9-1-1 services as an option for residents who are hearing and/or speech impaired and those in situations where it is too dangerous to dial 9-1-1 for assistance during an emergency. "Call if you can -- text if you can't" is the slogan developed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that is being utilized by Long Beach and other cities in Southern California that have implemented this new technology.
Cost:  No cost to the City                                                  
Wireless Emergency Alert Messages
The City is in the final stages of implementing the FEMA-managed Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) messaging system. During an emergency, WEA messages are sent to every cell phone in contact with a cell tower. WEA messages are accompanied with a loudwarning similar to AMBER alerts. No signup or registration is required for this system, which is an important feature for residents and tourists visiting Long Beach. These messages are delivered to targeted areas across multiple communications platforms including TV, radio, and mobile/cellular wireless devices.         

Cost: No cost to the city

Long Beach VA Healthcare System will hold its annual Research Fair on May 15th from 11:00 - 1:00 at Patriot Park on the VA Campus located on 7th Street.  Many people are unaware of the important research that the VA conducts for the benefit of Veterans as well as the public. Development of the CT scanner, testing of the first pacemaker, and the first successful liver transplant are among innovations that have come from VA researchers.  Come and enjoy a complimentary lunch and meet researchers who will tell you about the many clinical and basic science research programs conducted at our city's VA Medical Center.

Start time: 12:40 PM  
Estimated Finish time: 3:44 PM
The Tour kicks-off the 2018 festivities at Long Beach's waterfront along Shoreline Drive. The start and finish largely mirrors the annual
  Long Beach Grand Prix   held only one month prior. Stage 1 will host a 12-lap circuit, totaling 83.6 miles, starting and finishing on the waterfront before touring 7 miles of Long Beach's many highlights. 
After making a right turn at the majestic Villa Riviera, the peloton heads east on Ocean Boulevard, hugging the city's sandy shores for two glorious miles. The riders make a triangular U-turn where Ocean Boulevard forks, forcing them to deaccelerate and treat spectators to a rare double-vision opp
ortunity. This is quite possibly the best place to see Stage 1. Better yet, the Belmont Brewing Company is only steps away. As the oldest brew pub in Los Angeles, BBC is an excellent representative of Long Beach's resurgence with vibrant eateries and watering holes. At the foot of Belmont Shore Pier and overlooking the beach, it's the opportune place to watch all the action on the sand to downtown. If your taste buds drive your mood, head down to Belmont Shores for Stage 1.  
From the edges of the Belmont, the race double backs on Ocean before making a right turn at Bixby Park to make a brief detour into a little
bit of Long Beach's interior. As the peloton speeds back towards Downtown, it detours through Bixby Park, Bluff Park, Carroll Park, and Franklin. Just before re-entering downtown, riders experience the artsy East Village District. The best place to watch the race is on the periphery - diagonal from the   Villa Riviera   - but nowhere is the neighborhood's allure more evident than the corner of Broadway and Linden.   The Villa Riviera may provide a picture-perfect race backdrop, but Long Beach's East Village will satisfy all your cravings once the peloton passes.   

Long Beach Water is hosting our free, 7 th Annual Lawn-to-Garden Tour and Festival on Saturday, May 19. The event will showcase up to 20 newly transformed water-wise gardens throughout the City and feature a sustainability resource fair, a California-friendly plant sale and lots of family fun at the Festival at 1800 E Wardlow Road. The Tour will be 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. and the Festival will take place 11 a.m. - 2 p.m.
