Despite objections from environmentalists, a county commission has approved Long Beach's plan to annex 302 acres--including some federally protected wetlands--of unincorporated territory southeast of the city limits. The Local Agency Formation Commission, which must vote on such annexations, chose to overlook the objections of wetlands supporters who want to protect the area from development. City officials want to use the hourglass-shaped vacant land for commercial and residential development.
