From Redondo to Alamitos, East 7th St and its neighborhoods welcome tens of thousands of visitors and workers to downtown Long Beach daily. It is home to over 33,000 residents who hail from all over the world. We have three historic districts and important historic neighborhoods.
EAST 7TH STREET RE-ENVISIONING EVENT OCTOBER 19 & 20, 2013
PARTICIPATION IS ESSENTIAL
THE EAST 7TH STREET COLLABORATION needs your participation to activate and change East 7th St. from Redondo to Alamitos. Come out to East 7th between Redondo and Alamitos to support and give your voice to this effort. From 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday Oct 19 and Sunday Oct 20th, E. 7th Street will be hosting the “Re-envision East. 7th” event.
This highly used street should better reflect the culture of the neighborhoods it passes through. Artists & architects have been asked to envision the street as an urban boulevard that supported and reflected the culture of the neighborhoods it intersects. The response is tremendous and submissions are ongoing. To motivate artists and attract serious submissions the East 7th Street Collaboration, made up of concerned residents and businesses, was able to obtain donations for the cash prizes. First Place $1,000.00 from Signal Hill Petroleum; Second Place $500.00 Big Saver Foods; Third Place $250.00 RPNA, Craftsman Village, NABA. Both Council members Suja Lowenthal & Robert Garcia and the Arts Council are supporting this event.
Along with music, mini sidewalk cafes and the displays of contestants’ submissions, there will be a ballot box for the People’s Choice Award.
Never before have we seen sidewalk cafes or activity of this scale on Seventh Street in our area! Be part of it.
