The City of Long Beach is making development plans over the next 20 years and they are particularly interested in developing the city's arts and culture. The city's project is called Create Long Beach and they're basically trying to get the input of people and have them speak into their process as they make future plans for the city. It's actually very exciting that they're wanting to do this!
I heard that they weren't getting a whole lot of input from people under 30 years old so Catalyst organized a focus group for today targeting that age group. We arranged for a group of 9 men and women ages ranging from 20-30 years old.
It went really well and Create Long Beach got a lot of great feedback! It was fun to be part in putting this together for the city!
