TITLE

DISCUSSION
On September 5, 2013, the Planning Commission conducted a public hearing on the certification of the Mitigated Negative Declaration, zone change from Two-Family Residential (R-2-N) to Institutional (I), and Site Plan Review relating to the renovation of the Schroeder Hall U. S. Army Reserve Center to serve as the Long Beach East Division Police Department Substation. The subject site is located at 3800 East Willow Street between Redondo Avenue and Lakewood Boulevard; the renovated Schroeder Hall will contain the East Patrol Division and the Juvenile Investigations Section.

Constructed in 1960 to serve as a U.S. Army Reserve training facility, the U.S. Army occupied this facility until 2011, when the U.S. Department of Defense declared Schroeder Hall surplus under the Base Realignment and Closure Act (BRAC). The City of Long Beach was subsequently recognized as the Local Redevelopment Authority (LRA) responsible for reuse planning for the site. One of the two recommended uses by the BRAC Advisory Committee was to utilize the site for the East Division Police Substation.

The existing East Division Police Substation, located in a leased facility at 4800 Los Coyotes Diagonal, has been identified as inadequate to serve the existing residential population. The Police Department has searched for alternate locations for several years, finding only a lack of appropriately sized vacant properties or other unsuitable facilities. In December 18, 2007, the recommendation by the citizen-based BRAC Committee was approved by the City Council. The Juvenile Investigations Section, previously located at 1957 Pacific Avenue, will also occupy the renovated Schroeder Hall.
