For the Record is a placemaking project created in partnership with lead organization We Are The Next and other community leaders to help broaden the story told about North Long Beach by highlighting lesser known events and people who have shaped the city and neighborhood. A series of decals along Atlantic Avenue, between the Michelle Obama Library and Jordan High School, will reach as far back as 1784 to tell the history through an interactive timeline.

By engaging with the North Long Beach community in the places and spaces they frequent every day, For the Record seeks to empower local residents with knowledge of the history that surrounds them. Every weekday, hundreds of local teens walk this path. They will be exposed to the history of their city and discover the place they call home. Though the area has not traditionally participated in mainstream types of historic recognition, such as designating buildings as historic landmarks, this project looks to instill preservation values within the community through a fresh approach.
