Long Beach, CA
In an email to constituents, Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia is seeking input on the complexity and nuances of the city’s potential reopening. He wrote:
“Today, the City of Long Beach launched an online survey, ReopenLB, to seek input from residents, workers and business owners about how to safely reopen the local economy once Governor Newsom’s order indicates it is safe to do so.
We believe we are weeks, not months away from some meaningful adjustments to our stay at home order. But the timing and scope will be directed by experts and medical professionals. We have to be prepared for a phased approach.
Our economic recovery survey gives every resident and local business an opportunity to weigh in on how to reopen the Long Beach economy in the safest way possible. We think the best ideas and most innovative ideas are going to come from the small business owners who know their business and customers.”
This email comes on the heels of many cities and counties reopening across the country in a phased approach despite displeasure among many in the country who feel it is incredibly irresponsible to do so.
Mixed feelings have led to many open disagreements between Americans on the subject and over the past weekend, thousands took to Orange County beaches while onlookers shook their head in disbelief.
Survey responses will be collected until Monday May 4th until 5pm online at www.longbeach.gov/ReopenLB.
