Just wanted to share this news story that appears in this week’s issue of the The District Weekly. The story is about our efforts to improve the 98-cent store on the corner of 8th & Pine.
Thanks again to Loara Cadavona, Jenny Stafford, Kathy Shasha and especially to Retail Recruitment Committee leader Andreas Herr for their work on this and other projects.
State of The Downtown
Planting Seeds of Environmental Change
with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
Please join the Downtown Long Beach business community at the 5th Annual State of the Downtown luncheon on November 21, 2008, at 11:30 a.m. at the Westin Hotel in the East Village Arts District.
The annual luncheon event is hosted by the DLBA to present a comprehensive look at year-to-year changes in the redevelopment and revitalization of Downtown Long Beach and to focus on significant issues facing businesses, residents and visitors. Acclaimed author, attorney and lifelong environmental activist, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has been engaged to deliver the keynote address at the annual event.
Capitalizing on Kennedy’s renown passion for the environment, this year’s theme, Planting Seeds of Environmental Change, will address the importance of environmental consciousness as we continue the planning and development of our urban center. Issues such as water conservation, ‘green’ building practices, natural energy resources and recycling programs will be among the topics discussed. Of particular focus will be the pollution of our beaches, the contamination of the Los Angeles River and the opportunities we have as a community to overcome these challenges.
