(July 14, 2003) -- A Lakewood Village/Country Club area group is organizing to oppose Boeing Realty's proposed PacifiCenter @ Long Beach.
Gene Lassers, a member of the "Lakewood Country Club PacifiCenter Task Force," has emailed LBReport.com a press release announcing that the Lakewood Village Neighborhood Association in Long Beach and Lakewood Country Club PacifiCenter Task Force will hold a meeting at the Lakewood Country Club, August 6 at 7 p.m.
The release says a "power point presentation will be made emphasing Safety, Security and Noise abatement, and how the development as presented will affect the quality of life, the infrastructure of the surrounding neighborhoods" and will discuss implications to the City of Long Beach "of building residential units next to an active commercial airport with over 300,000 aircraft movements a year."
The release says the two groups "have taken the stand of zero base housing" on the project.
An opposition website is also under construction.
As previously reported by LBReport.com, Boeing Realty's PacifiCenter web site says the company has reduced the number of residential units proposed from a maximum of 3,800 units to a maximum of 2,500 units, with single family homes added and the housing location changed to reduce adjacent neighborhood impacts.
