DISCUSSION
In 2015, the State Department of Finance approved the City of Long Beach Successor Agency’s Long Range Management Plan (LRMP). This plan articulated the City’s path for disposing of Successor Agency properties for sale, development, or public use. Several properties included on the LRMP had been acquired for the purpose of providing additional parkland to the City’s parks inventory. The four properties that are the subject of this zone change request will be subject to a State and City required process to designate the properties for use as City parks in perpetuity.

This proposal is a request for zone changes for four properties to reflect the current and future use as City parks. No physical construction or change is proposed with this action. On February 16, 2017, the Planning Commission considered the zone change requests and recommended City Council approval (Exhibit A - Planning Commission Staff Report). Exhibit B depicts the current zoning and General Plan land use designations. A summary of each property is provided below:
