Last month, the City of Long Beach began work on the remodel of Harvey Milk Park, a pocket green space in the City's Downtown area.

The existing 500-square-foot space, located on 3rd Street at the terminus of the Promenade, was described by Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia as " an important gathering space [to] honor so many LBGTQ leaders in our city."

Proposed improvements will include new landscape and hardscape, an even stage, an honor wall for local LGBTQ+ leaders, a mural honoring Harvey Milk, charging stations, shade structures, and outdoor seating.

The renovation of the park, which is named for the slain San Francisco Supervisor and civil rights leader Harvey Milk, is scheduled for completion in May 2018.

On July 24, the Central Area Planning Commission is scheduled to consider an appeal of a proposed small lot subdivision across the street from Barnsdall Park. The project, located at 4765-4773 Hollywood Boulevard, calls for demolishing an existing commercial building and parking lot to make way for the construction of 18 single-family residences.  The three-story buildings would offer floor plans between 1,794 and 2,969 square feet, each featuring a two-car garage.
