Acres of Books possible future laid out in new report -- time for you to weigh in

The Long Beach Gazette’s Harry Saltzgaver outlines the draft EIR for a project called The Art Exchange, which would replace the late lamented Acres of Books in Long Beach, one of the best book stores in the galaxy*.

“About two-thirds of the Broadway block, between Broadway and Third Street from Long Beach Boulevard to Elm Avenue, would remain a parking lot waiting for future construction. The new building would fill the northwest corner of the block over to the Acres of Books building.”

Harry’s report also includes info about how you can respond to the plan.

*Portland is in a different universe, as we all know.
