The Reese-Davidson Community on the Venice Canals
The biggest development in Venice since the days of Abbot Kinney, the Reese-Davidson Community on the Venice Canals will be constructed on a 2.65-acre parcel in a residential area straddling Grand Canal at the Venice Boulevard entrance to Venice Beach, a block from the southern edge of the Venice Boardwalk.
Heard Around Venice
When I first heard about this project I thought it was a joke. The amount of anger Venice residents have towards this project is creating deep wounds in our community.

Mr. Bonin ...consider that you are at the apex of a profound failure of civic leadership on the westside, the results of which we are seeing and living daily via assaults, robberies, burglaries, and increasing lawlessness.
R. G.Venice Resident
As a Venice resident, taxpayer and voter in all national, state and local elections, I am so deeply disappointed to realize how irrelevant my safety, wellbeing, and voice are to you, Council Member Bonin.
S. F.Venice Resident
I don't feel safe at night anymore, as they wonder the streets late a night, stealing whatever they can in order to sell it the next day or so on the boardwalk (such as my amazon packages, plants, etc).
S. C.Venice Resident
This is just a call for Bonin to further punish Venice for not supporting him. Why should 200+ homeless transients live on the canals for free when I, as a local resident , could not afford the taxes, let alone the purchase price ???
H. G.Venice Resident
This project is nothing more than a handout to developers and the expense of the taxpayers and the community at large. It isn't serious about improving the lives of the incompetent...
