Let’s Fight Back, Venice!
Subject Line: I Oppose the Venice Median Zone Change from Open Space to Commercial!
Dear Members of LUPC and the VNC Board:
I write to express my enthusiastic support for Item 9.A. on the October 3, 2019 LUPC Agenda opposing the City’s plan to change the zoning of the Venice Median from OPEN SPACE to COMMERCIAL in the LA General Plan, Venice Community Plan, Certified Venice Local Coastal Program Land Use Plan, and Venice Coastal Zone Specific Plan.
This proposed zone change will lead to terrible congestion at the entrance to Venice Beach and impair our ability to cope with sea level rise and disasters. The ONLY REASON for it is to pave the way for construction of the Monster on the Median.
Last month, the City (working in partnership with the Governor and State Legislature) stripped Los Angeles of crucial rights and legal protections that the rest of the state continues to enjoy through a new law that exempts homeless housing projects IN LOS ANGELES ONLY from CEQA review. There are currently AT LEAST 6 HOMELESS HOUSING PROJECTS in the Venice pipeline, so now more than ever, we have to fight for our community on every front.
We hope we can count on you to stand up for us, for our families and for Venice.
