TITLE

Recommendation to adopt resolution authorizing the temporary closure of certain streets, alleys, and walkways in the City of Long Beach in connection with the 2020 Formula Drift Pro Championship.  (District 2)

 

DISCUSSION

The 15th Annual Formula Drift Pro Championship will be held in Long Beach from April 10 through 11, 2020.  This event will attract over 25,000 people to the City.  To allow for the staging of this event, a Resolution has been prepared that provides for the temporary closure of a portion of Shoreline Drive between Ocean Boulevard and Shoreline Village Drive, and various adjacent streets.  This area will be used as part of the venue for the festival, which will also be held on the Marina Green and at Rainbow Lagoon Park.  Additional space is required for the safety of event attendees due to projected attendance figures.

 

Access to Shoreline Marina and Shoreline Village will be via Shoreline Village Drive. Directional signage will be provided to clearly direct traffic to these areas.  The appropriate City departments have reviewed the requested closure plans.

 

Traffic management and signage plans will be shared with the public through various media outlets.

 

This matter was reviewed by Deputy City Attorney Arturo D. Sanchez on October 28, 2019 and by Budget Analysis Officer Julissa José-Murray on November 27, 2019.
