Mooring Plans off Pier Moves Slowly

{mosimage}Published on 3/22/2007 

By Carla M. Collado, Staff Writer


Revised plans for a Catalina-Style boat mooring project proposed for Long Beach’s inner harbor have yet to go to the Planning Commission for approval, despite being placed on the meeting agendas for several weeks.

The city’s Marine Bureau chief, Mark Sandoval, explained that the Planning Department staff still has to write another report — as a result of three additions made to the project proposal back in January. The report must then be put in public circulation for 20 days. It must, for example, be given to opponents of the project who were present at the Planning Commission’s Dec. 21 meeting.

Sandoval said he expects the project proposal to reach the commission in May at the earliest.

[What's Hot] Pacific Health Care

HEALING BEACHES & OCEANS: Today we are on another make-the-ocean-better kick and we are wondering: Would it be boorish or tiresomely predictable of us to suggest that if you want to make the ocean better, locally, you could do no worse than blow a hole in the breakwater?

Letters to the Editor-Olympic Bid (and pollution)

Published on 1/24/2007 on Press Telegram 

I laughed when I opened my paper as I read the above-the-fold story of Long Beach's quest to "join 2016 Olympic bid," and then the below-the-fold story about the fact that one of the proposed venues, Marine Stadium, was shut down due to a raw sewage spill. It reminded me of the story you ran about the runners who came from out of state to participate in the Long Beach Marathon only to have our air pollution make them sick and cause asthma attacks in otherwise healthy marathon runners. Maybe I should have cried instead of laughing at the irony, since we're stuck here with polluted air and water year-round.
