Subject line: I Support the Appeal of the City's Approval of the First Four-Story Building in Oakwood
Appeal No.: A-5-VEN-19-0020
Project name: Venice Community Housing Corp.
Dear Members of the California Coastal Commission,
I am writing to urge a finding of substantial issue in the above case.
The proposed four-story building is incompatible with the mass, scale, and character of the Oakwood district, which is almost entirely one and two story residential structures, and provides insufficient parking for its density and extensive office uses. Further, the gift of 10 feet of the adjoining public sidewalk is misguided and should be rejected in light of the need for expansion of Rose Avenue to provide a proper bike lane.
Thank you for considering my views on this matter.
