Proposed language access policy for Long Beach falls short:

Long Beach has long styled itself as an international city. Its motto is
Many Unique Neighborhoods, One Great City.

The reason our neighborhoods are unique is the languages, cultures, and
cuisines of our diverse residents. Long Beach proudly advertises that it is
home to the largest population of Cambodians outside of Cambodia. It is
also home to cultural institutions such as the Khmer Arts Academy, Pacific
Island Ethnic Art Museum, and the Museum of Latin American Art.
