I have been meeting with the folks at the Marriott at Lakewood and Spring adjacent to Skylinks Golf Course and the LB Municipal Airport.
The hotel in undergoing some fantastic renovations and its marketing chief, Michael Robby and I have been talking about how we can network to get more business to the hotel and those businesses near the airport.
One of the ideas we are developing is to form a Long Beach Airport Area Business Network that can gather the various businesses, the city and others and start working on a plan to get more business. Stay tuned as we launch the venture with a networking reception at the Marriott.
I have already proposed at council some ideas on how to grow and retain business by providing waivers and reductions and other incentives in our business license tax. We need move aggressively so that we can develop jobs in our city. The rate of unemployment is unacceptable.
Let's get Long Beach moving again!
