On Tuesday, April 5, The Long Beach Housing Development Company (LBHDC) and Councilmember Robert Garcia, 1st District, demolished a check cashing facility that had long been a public nuisance for area residents and businesses.
The LBHDC pursued the acquisition of the property, located at 460 W. Pacific Coast Highway, to facilitate the future redevelopment of the full block. This marks the last remaining parcel on this block assembled by the LBHDC in recent years to be demolished. These acquisitions are part of ongoing community revitalization efforts in the Washington School Housing Action Plan (HAP) focus area, and were targeted because of blighted conditions, overcrowding, and nuisance activities.
The acquisition and assemblage of these properties demonstrates the LBHDC’s commitment to provide safe and livable neighborhoods in Long Beach. By making this block available for a new development opportunity, the LBHDC looks forward to sparking the transformation of the surrounding neighborhood.
Housing Action Plan (HAP) - In 2004, the City adopted a five-year Housing Action Plan (HAP) to serve as the framework for the allocation of scarce housing resources. Its intent is to maximize investment of these resources to benefit as many residents as possible, and at the same time, revitalize and stabilize Long Beach neighborhoods. Three neighborhoods were selected as HAP focus areas; Washington School, Central, and North Long Beach King School.
