Let’s Fight Back, Venice!

Subject Line: Venice Demands Fair Share, Everywhere!
Dear Councilman Bonin:
I saw in the Los Angeles Times on February 22nd that you are among a handful of councilmembers backing a resolution calling on each member of the City Council to approve at least 222 units of supportive housing in his or her district by July 1, 2020. According to the article, the proposal is intended to promote “geographic equity” and roll back LA’s failed “containment policy,” which, over the years, has spawned homeless hubs like Skid Row and Venice.
As a resident of Venice, I demand that these same principles be applied in determining the placement of supportive housing developments within Council District 11. Between the Venice Median Project and the Thatcher Yard Project just a mile away, more than 160 of the 230 or so Prop HHH housing units you have pledged to approve for Council District 11 by July 1, 2020 are in Venice.
Yet, unbelievably, you are fighting a mixed-use development that would provide several affordable housing units near your home in Mar Vista because it is “too tall” and, in your view, affordable housing makes more sense elsewhere – “especially along transit corridors.”
Venice values socio-economic diversity and we want to continue doing our part to address homelessness, but we are tired of being taken for granted and mistreated.
The Venice Median Project and the Thatcher Yard Project are obviously too big and too dense, even for a welcoming community like Venice. And no community in Council District 11 should have more than one large Prop HHH project until all communities in Council District 11 have at least one large Prop HHH project.
Scrap these ill-conceived plans and come back to us with a proposal anchored in the principles of “geographic equity” – and sound community planning – you claim to espouse.
