As the start of the school year commences, so do concerns about traffic safety and parking issues that have resurfaced and which I take very seriously. I have been working on solutions to address these concerns, some of which fall within the City’s jurisdiction, while others require partnership with our local LBUSD Board and Superintendent. On July 21, I authored a Council agenda item directing our City Manager to work closely with LBUSD and to re-establish the Long Beach Unified School District Joint Use Committee in order to help with these larger challenges requiring permanent solutions, and in which the schools, parents, neighbors and city can take ownership.
