Long Beach Wants Residents To Weigh In On How To Reopen Businesses
Long Beach residents and business owners: Your government wants to hear your thoughts on how to reopen the city.
City officials have released an online survey called ReopenLB to get a sense of how comfortable people are with certain businesses reopening once the stay-at-home orders lift, and what barriers still exist to safely return to work.
Mayor Robert Garcia said in a statement:
"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."
"We think that small business owners are going to have the best and most innovative ideas on how to reopen their small businesses," Garcia said at today's news briefing. "We want you to take this survey - we've already had six thousand people that have signed up."
Ultimately, it's up to city leaders to decide when and how to modify the stay-at-home order, but they say they will consider community feedback in their roadmap for reopening. Officials will continue to collect responses until 5 p.m. on Monday, May 4.
