Present Land Use
Existing land uses on the site include a County of Los Angeles detention basin, buildings and other improvements associated with current and former tenants on the City's land, and an unused gas compression and treating facility. The existing project site is partially operating oil field containing 46 wells (and two adjacent off-site wells.) Of the 48 wells, 15 are producing oil. The remaining wells are either idle or abandoned. Currently, the project site is designated as "General Industry" Land Use District (LUD) No, 9G by the Land Use Element of the City of Long Beach General Plan. The project site is designated Industrial ("IM" for Medium Industrial) and Institutional ("I" for Institutional) on City zoning maps.
Document Description
On April 18, 2006, the Long Beach City Council certified the Final EIR and approved development of the Long Beach Sports Park which will result in the development of a Sports Park, passive open space, wetlands restoration areas, and the rezoning of a portion of the +/- 55-acre project site for future commercial (retail/office) use. The project includes an application for a General Plan amendment, zone changes, conditional use permit, a standards variance for parking, and a Tentative Parcel Map that will create separate parcels for an outparcel (not a part) and future commercial uses.
