Anybody got anything to say about the draft Environmental Impact Report—prepared by the Port of Long Beach and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers—for a facility that would import construction-quality sand, gravel, granite and aggregate on a 8.3 acres of privately owned and currently vacant land on Pier D the Harbor District?
If so, you can say it during Wednesday’s public hearing at the at Long Beach City Council Chambers (333 W. Ocean Blvd., 90802), which begins at 6 p.m. You can park in the City Hall parking structure; the entrance is on the south side of Broadway between Chestnut and Cedar avenues. Spanish and sign language translation services will be provided.
The Port also welcomes written comments. Please send comments to Rick Cameron, Director of Environmental Planning, Port of Long Beach, 925 Harbor Plaza, Long Beach, 90802; or Cameron@polb.com.
