Save Venice Open Space
There is a crucial motion on the agenda of the VNC Land Use
and Planning Committee (LUPC) tonight opposing the City’s plan to change the
zoning of the Venice Median (the 3-acre parcel west of Dell and east of
Pacific, between North Venice and South Venice) from OPEN SPACE to COMMERCIAL
in the Los Angeles General Plan, Venice Community Plan, Certified Venice Local
Coastal Program Land Use Plan, and Venice Local Coastal Specific Plan.
This proposed zone change will significantly increase the existing congestion
at the primary entrance to Venice Beach and impair our ability to cope with sea
level rise and natural disasters. The ONLY REASON for the proposed zone
change is to pave the way for construction of a huge homeless shelter on this
You can see this motion in the LUPC
It is Item 9.A. starting on Page 3.
Please send a ONE-CLICK EMAIL letting members of LUPC know you oppose
the zone change and, if at all possible, attend the meeting tonight to support
the motion and LUPC Chair Alix Gucovsky:
