Venice Neighborhood Council (VNC) last Tuesday recommended approval and disapproval of building projects for Venice as well as approved motions that will help homeless.
Approved projects were 45 Venice Blvd, 2318 Clement, 825 Palms, 741 Superba, 210 Linnie Canal, 80 Windward, 2318 Clement, and 742 – 746 Milwood. Rialto project at 407 – 409 was denied. Abbot Kinney at 1522 was removed from list of projects to be discussed.
A motion was provided by the homeless committee for a 6-month pilot program, in cooperations with LAPD and the Bureau of Sanitation, to provide 25 60-gallon bins on 3rd and Rose for the homeless to use for storage of personal items during the day. As of now, there is no such storage program other than the one at Venice Beach. Another motion provided by the homeless committee was to provide homeless persons with free pet services once a month.
A motion proposed by the neighborhood committee was to provide signs at parks and schools restricting oversize vehicles during certain hours. This would eliminate neighbors doing the petition on a block-by-block basis.
