Assembly Bill 2932 Ensures Long Beach Sidewalks Are Safe and Accessible for Residents

(SACRAMENTO) – Assembly Bill 2932 authored by Assemblymember Patrick O’Donnell (D – Long Beach) passed the Assembly Local Government Committee today. AB 2932 will expedite the construction of sidewalks and make other infrastructure improvements for Long Beach residents. 

“This bill will remove unnecessary delays and puts shovels in the ground sooner,” Assemblymember O’Donnell said. “I am proud to work with the City of Long Beach to ensure our infrastructure is safe and accessible for all.”

AB 2932 will allow the city to issue contracts for sidewalk construction projects by incorporating both the design and construction processes all in one-step. The streamlined process for bidding and awarding these contracts will expedite the upgrade of sidewalks and curbs as soon as possible.

The bill now goes to the Assembly floor.
