Recommendation to declare ordinance amending the Use District Map of the City of Long Beach as said map has been established and amended by amending portions of Part 17 of said Map from Regional Highway District (CHW) to Willow Street Center Planned Development (PD-27), read and adopted as read.

DISCUSSION
On January 19, 2017, the Planning Commission held a public hearing and voted 4-0 to recommend that the City Council adopt Mitigated Negative Declaration 06-16 (MND 06-16), and approve a Zone Change for three parcels located at 2640 N.
