Did you know that the City of Long Beach plans to build a giant aquatics center on the beach in Belmont Shore?

The Belmont Beach Aquatics Center, with 2 Olympic-size pools and a platform diving pool, will cost $82 million and was approved in January 2020 by Long Beach City Council. The project must now get permits from the California Coastal Commission because the project site is in the coastal zone.

The Coastal Commission is concerned that Long Beach residents from under-served communities
were not adequately consulted and considered during the planning and approval of this pool project.

THEY WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!

HOW: We urge you, and your friends and neighbors, to send your email comments to the California Coastal Commission by 02/04/21. Send it to:dani.ziff@coastal.ca.gov

Subject Line: Public Comment on 02/04/21 - Agenda Item Th14a - Application No. 5-18-0788

WHEN: Write to them by 2/4/21! The public hearing date is Thursday, February 11th (9am to 7pm) and will be conducted electronically via ZOOM.

WHAT: Please ask them to stop this project on the beach, and to consult Long Beach residents all over the city to build it in a neighborhood that needs a community, public pool.

We’re a group of residents opposed to the project because of future sea-level rise (the beach site is expected to flood in 30-50 years), the cost ($82 million, from Tidelands Funds) and the fact that there’s already an existing outdoor pool at this site – installed 5 years ago when the old Belmont Pool was demolished in 2015.

But only you can tell the Coastal Commission that there are places in Long Beach with a greater need for recreation and sports facilities! The entire City of Long Beach has only 3 public pools Long Beach needs more community pools and this pool should be built in a neighborhood where more Long Beach residents can easily reach it to enjoy the benefits of swimming and recreation.

Please send your comments by 02/4/21 to the Coastal Commission at: dani.ziff@coastal.ca.gov

Subject Line: Public Comment on 2/4/21-Agenda Item Th14a - Application No. 5-18-0788

Paid for by Long Beach residents who believe there’s a better place in Long Beach for this public pool.
