Subject: If You Want Waves On Our Beaches... YOU MUST READ THIS!
As you know, we are strong supporters of cleaning our water and bringing waves back to Long Beach by reconfiguring the Breakwater. Wave activity will improve our water quality, stimulate tourism, and boost our local economy by making our beaches a new and exciting destination. We can do all this while protecting our coastal homes and the Port of Long Beach.
We expect that this Friday, June 18, 2010 the Army Corps of Engineers will release their decision on moving forward with a federal feasibility study on the breakwater's reconfiguration.
If the decision is released as expected, then on Tuesday, June 22, 2010 the City Council will vote on whether to move forward and partner with the Army Corps on an extensive feasibility study. This will be a historic vote, and decide the future of our local beaches.
We encourage you to attend the June 22nd City Council meeting and voice your support for a federal feasibility study. The meeting starts at 5:00pm.
Feel free to call our offices (562) 570-6919 (Councilmember Robert Garcia) or (562) 570-6918 (Councilmember Patrick O'Donnell) if you have any questions.
Also, please help spread the word - feel free to forward this email, Tweet it, or post it on your Facebook wall.
