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 conduct of the 2016 Formula Drift Pro Championship.  (District 2)

 

DISCUSSION

The 11th Annual Formula Drift Pro Championship will be held in Long Beach from April 8 through 9, 2016.  This event will attract over 25,000 people to the City.  In order to allow for the staging of this event, a Resolution has been prepared, which provides for the temporary closure of a portion of Shoreline Drive between Ocean Boulevard and Shoreline Village Drive, and various adjacent streets described in the Resolution.  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 the Shoreline Marina and Shoreline Village will be via Shoreline Village Drive. Directional signage shall be provided to clearly direct traffic to these areas.  The appropriate City Departments have reviewed the requested closure plans.

 

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

 

This matter was reviewed by Deputy City Attorney Richard F. Anthony on February 1, 2016 and by Budget Management Officer Victoria Bell on January 29, 2016.
