    Councilwoman Richardson Proposes Naming New Park @ 2023 Pasadena Ave: Officer Daryle W. Black Memorial Park

    (August 30, 2003) -- 6th district Councilwoman Laura Richardson has agendized an item for the Sept. 2 City Council meeting, requesting that a new park site at 2023 Pasadena Ave. be named Officer Daryle W. Black Memorial Park. quotes from Councilwoman Richardson's agendizing memo below:

    This request is in response to wide spread community support to recognize Officer Black who was killed in the line of duty near the site of the park and for his strong dedication to the City of Long Beach and the betterment of children in neighborhood communities. Groups such as the Central Neighborhood Advisory Committee, The Lime Avenue Neighborhood Watch, the Pasadena Neighborhood Watch and the Central Neighborhood Improvement Strategy Committee all have expressed their desire to help facilitate this action. The park itself is being designed with input from community representatives and will be a welcomed respite for neighborhood children and adult residents who will have a well-equipped and secure place to play and congregate.

    Therefore, I respectfully request the proposal to name the new park site at 2023 Pasadena Avenue after Officer Daryle W. Black be referred to the Housing and Neighborhoods’ Committee for consideration.

    ACTION: Refer to the Housing and Neighborhoods’ Committee

    Reached for comment by, Steve James, president of the Long Beach Police Officers Association, said naming the new park in Officer Black's honor is "a wonderful tribute to an incredible man."

    Officer Black was murdered by a gang member within walking distance of the new park. The murderer has been tried, convicted and sentenced to death.

    Another media outlet has reported that a dispatcher on the police radio delivered the news of Officer Black's death with the poignant announcement: "EOW" ("end of watch").

    Assuming the Council agrees, Officer Black's name will now stand permanent watch in that neighborhood on that park.
