Funds Sought for Legal Challenge to Storage Use at Westminster Center

Venice Stakeholders is looking to raise $5,000 to retain legal counsel to oppose the conversion of the Westminister Center to storage and keep alive the prospect of other uses such as a Venice Historical Museum and/or an office for park rangers for the Venice Beach Recreation Area and policing other parks in Venice. Contributions, which are tax deductible, can be made by PayPal to or sent to VSA c/o 1615 Andalusia Avenue, Venice, CA. All donations will be used for legal research, and opposing the storage use, such as challenging the facility's change of use from recreation to a non-recreation use and application for a project permit under the Venice Local Coastal Specific Plan.

UPDATE:  We have now raised $750 towards the $5,000 needed to retain legal counsel.  In  the meantime our attorneys are reviewing legal challenges as a courtesy.
