  • Homeless

All in less than a 5 block radius.  All 7 of these items have occurred in this neighborhood in the last 30 days.  A neighborhood next to the police headquarters.  And sadly, and outrageously, this has become the norm.  We have thousands of residents living in this area, and we, 535 Magnolia, are of part of them.  We cannot become complacent and just be glad it wasn't us this time when someone's car gets stolen (even LBPD is not immune at their headquarters), a bomb is left in our car, or our property is tagged--repeatedly.  If we do not Sign or petition to let authorities know more has to be done, we cannot be mad when these things happen again.  We cannot be mad when our property value diminishes because people sell as quickly as they buy after being a victim and perhaps constant victim of crimes.  We cannot be mad when people stop investing in the upkeep of the properties out of hopelessness. We cannot be mad when guests share they don't feel comfortable coming to our neighborhood.  We cannot be mad, when WE don't feel comfortable coming to our neighborhood.  We CAN only be mad, when we have asked for help and nothing is done. PETITION TO PATROL more, SIGN FOR SAFETY now.  Put your signature on here to show the below a united force that wants change.  

We, the Association at 535 Magnolia, would like Mayor Garcia, the City of Long Beach, Lena Gonzalez, and the Long Beach Police Department South Patrol to 

  1. increase the amount of police presence in our neighborhood
  2. increase the frequency of police patrol 

These 2 things are known statistically to deter crime.  LBPD can't be everywhere all the time, but if we are rebuilding LB, and trying to draw people to live here and generate revenue, and downtown is being transformed and touted as the place to be, then we need to make it a safe place people would like to move to, and more importantly, a place they'd like to stay.  People are more likely to stay if it's safe; and certainly more likely to leave if it's not.


We hope you decide to sign and be like us, the squeaky wheel that hopefully will get the oil, Mr. Garcia!
