TITLE

Recommendation to increase appropriations in the General Fund (GF) in the Legislative Department (LD) by $25,000, offset by the Ninth Council District FY 17 one-time infrastructure funds to be used for events and outreach efforts to support community improvement and beautification projects in the Ninth District through Cycle 2 of the Creative Corridor Challenge.

 

DISCUSSION

In accordance with the City's "Procedures for Implementation of Divide by Nine Funding", Council District Nine is requesting that FY 17 one-time infrastructure funds in the amount of $25,000 be used for Cycle 2 of the successful Creative Corridor Challenge. The Creative Corridor Challenge was launched in Council District 9 in 2016 in partnership with the Arts Council for Long Beach and Squeeze Arts Collective.

 

The project involved the use of artwork to eliminate blight and beautify corridors. The first phase resulted in the development of eight murals along major streets within the district. The Creative Corridor Challenge also encouraged community involvement while creating a safe space for local youth and adults to participate in the process. Cycle 2 will be implemented in a similar fashion, and will add to the positive impact created during the first year.

 

FISCAL IMPACT

The total appropriation increase of $25,000 for the Ninth Council District office budget is offset by a transfer of one-time infrastructure funds from the Capital Projects Fund (CP) in the Public Works Department (PW).

 

SUGGESTED ACTION

Approve recommendation.

 

Respectfully Submitted,

REX RICHARDSON

VICE MAYOR, NINTH DISTRICT
