Long Beach axes plan to use community gym for unhoused residents

Long Beach officials on Tuesday announced they had halted plans to set up a temporary winter homeless shelter at a community gym after complaints from neighbors.

Those living next to the gym, located in Silverado Park, have insisted this is not a NIMBY issue. They say they don’t want to lose an important community gathering spot in an area of the city where recreational amenities are limited.
