The Long Beach Downtown Residential Council (DRC) hosts forums to benefit the Downtown Neighborhoods.

The Downtown Residential Council (DRC) is a local entity that brings together leaders of the Downtown residential community. This area is loosely bound on the south by the ocean, to the north by 10th Street, on the west by the 710 freeway, and to the east by Alamitos Avenue.

The DRC allows representatives of downtown neighborhoods to jointly discuss issues of common concern. They can then work together to achieve solutions of benefit for residents. We focus on community, communication, and impact to make Downtown a better place to live!
