Input Sought for Proposed Aggregate Terminal
Port conducting study of 12.6-acre project on Pier B
June 15, 2009
The Port will seek public input at a hearing this Thursday, June 25, at 6:30 p.m. at Long Beach City Hall on a proposal by Cemera Long Beach, LLC, to construct and operate a sand, gravel and granite aggregate facility on privately owned land in the Harbor District. The meeting Thursday will be at Long Beach City Council Chambers, 333 W. Ocean Blvd., Long Beach, 90802.
The vacant, 12.6-acre site is in the northeast part of the Harbor District, on Pier B Street next to the National Gypsum Co. facility.
The project is being proposed by a private company on private land. Because the site is in the Harbor District, the project is undergoing environmental review by the Port of Long Beach. As part of that process, the Port is holding public "scoping" meetings to gather input in advance of preparing the Environmental Impact Report (EIR).
See the Notice of Preparation of a Draft Environmental Impact Report.
