Occupy Long Beach GA Notes 12/30/11
In Friday's GA several locations were discussed for an overnight occupation. The discussion was mostly surrounding the important factors to consider in choosing another site. We will make this decision in Tuesday's GA.
In Saturday's GA, we are only discussing a temporary relocation of our GA's, meetings and events to Bixby Park until we resolve an overnight occupation site.
The following factors were listed as most important in selecting a location:
Safe place for everyone
Bathrooms available late night
Visible to wider community
OK with existing community
Accessible (public transit and parking for cars)
Sidewalk space for sleeping
The parks under consideration were:
Martin Luther King, Jr. (btwn Orange & Lemon, and 19th & 20th)
Veteran's Memorial (28th & Pine, btwn 28th & Spring St)
Cesar Chavez ( btwn 3rd St & 6th St, and Golden Ave & Shoreline Drive)
Bixby Park ( btwn Cherry & Junipero, and Ocean & Broadway)
Marina Green (E Shoreline Drive - Alamitos Ave south of Ocean Blvd)
Recreation Park (btwn E 7th St & Anaheim St, and Park Ave & PCH)
If you have the time, please do some research or scouting on how much each location address our needs so that our discussion on Tuesday can be more productive.
Happy New Year!!!
