First District Bike Rack & Red Curb Survey
October 24 @ 10:00 am
Bird Cage Coffeehouse (4th Street and Pacific Avenue)
Please join the NPNA’s Community Projects Committee as we team up with other community volunteers to assist city staff in looking for opportunities to reduce unnecessary red curbs, and to add new bike racks at local businesses to encourage bike riding. The less cars on the road, the better.
Bring your bike, or wear your walking shoes. Lunch will be provided for all volunteers after the survey.
To volunteer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
After much anticipation, NPNA’s K9 Corner dog park celebrated its grand opening on Sunday, September 27, 2009. There were approximately 200 guests in attendance including Assemblymember Bonnie Lowenthal, Councilmember Robert Garcia, city officials, and area residents. The opening featured a dog adoption and booths hosted by local businesses, such as: PetPartners, Soggy Dog, Petropolis, and PJ’s Pet Cafe. Additionally, the Long Beach Beach Police Officers’ Association was on hand serving up hot dogs to the hungry crowd. After the ribbon cutting, roughly 50 dogs christened the park, along with their owners.
Located at the corner of Pacific Avenue and 9th Street, K9 Corner is NPNA’s inaugural “pet” project to transform an otherwise unused space in downtown into a fully sustainable, eco-friendly dog park. K9 Corner features park lighting that is powered by solar panels, a sloped irrigation system for its drought tolerant landscape, and faux grass, instead of its water guzzling counterpart.
“We’re very excited for the opening of the dog park as it represents the culmination of over two years in planning and development in partnership with the city,” said Andreas Herr, one of the founding members of the NPNA. ”K9 Corner represents a huge step in the right direction for our neighborhood. We’re excited to show off what we’ve been working on.”
We look forward to seeing you and your pooches at K9 Corner!
