November/December Issue



The new Civic Center Project will be the focus of the next edition of Straight Talk. Joining host Art Levine to discuss the project will be Jeff Fullerton, Project Director for Plenary Edgemoor Civic Partners, and Craig Beck, Director of Public Works for the City of Long Beach. Plenary Edgemoor is partnering with the City in a public-private partnership (PPP) similar to the one used to build the new Governor George Deukmejian Courthouse.

The $520 million design-build-finance-operate-maintain civic center project will replace the old city hall and provide a new headquarters building for the Port of Long Beach, a new city library, a retail market place and a public park and community gathering space to serve residents and visitors for years to come. The project is likely to stimulate additional private investment in downtown areas adjacent to the project.

This show will air in Long Beach on Saturday, December 3 and Sunday, December 4 at 9am and 7pm on LBTV Channel 3 and in Long Beach and 70 surrounding cities at 10am and 8pm on Charter Channel 188. It will be repeated the following weekend at the same times.

Straight Talk is also viewable on demand at www.StraightTalkTV.com and on YouTube and can be heard on iTunes.
