June 24, 2009 – The long-rumored Kroc Center in Long Beach has moved one step closer to reality, as the Environmental Impact report recently got approved by the city’s Planning Commission. The Kroc Center is to be a large sports facility constructed in the 6th District.
Though fund-raising efforts are continuing, it has been reported that the project is still $25 million or so away from breaking ground. Several charitable organizations have been involved in producing the money needed, and even rapper Snoop Dogg has chipped in, pledging $5 million to the Long Beach construction of the Kroc Center.
October 10, 2009 – Long Beach City College has recently received close to $2.4 million in stimulus grants, which in large-part will be used to educate local contractors about green construction practices. The program, which is to kick-off in November, is intended to not only encourage green building, but also create a knowledgeable and available workforce for the Long Beach construction industry. LBCC expects to educate around 400 local Long Beach contractors as well as other participants.
LBCC will also be working with a number of agencies to help place workers who complete the green building programs. The educational programs, which will also benefit from the additional $4.2 million in funding from area philanthropists, have an 18-month window in which to capitalize on the stimulus funds. Huntington Beach contractors, as well as Garden Grove contractors, are also expected to take advantage of this amazing opportunity.
