Over the Borderline: LB/Signal Hill Edition

New, 1 comment

The LA Times visits the wacky border between Long Beach and Signal Hill, where business owners have to be careful about where they put their cash registers and ballerinas in training dance in Long Beach but change upstairs in Signal Hill. The confusion is all the fault of old timey oil operators, who "mounted an incorporation drive in the 1920s. Then, the hill overlooking Long Beach was pockmarked by impressive drilling derricks and small farms. When the city was created, the boundaries that oil companies staked out included only their fields." [LAT]
