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 Federation Internationale de l’Automobile Long Beach ePrix.  (District 2)

 

DISCUSSION

The 2nd Annual FIA Long Beach ePrix will be held in Long Beach April 1-2, 2016.  This event is anticipated to attract over 75,000 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 Pine Avenue, and various adjacent streets, alleys and walkways 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 Alamitos parking lot and Marina access road. 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 and by Budget Management Officer Victoria Bell on February 10, 2016.
