VNC Cancels/Postpones Town Hall

VNC Cancels/Postpones Town HallThe Venice Neighborhood Council (VNC) has cancelled/postponed the April Town Hall meet to discuss Overnight Parking Districts (OPD) and Preferential Parking Districts (PPD).PPP is being presented separately by the Los Angeles Department of Transportation to the California Coastal Commission (CCC) as a concept. The LADOT would like to get a reading from the CCC regarding parking and resident parking protection on two commercial streets in Venice. LADOT is proposing the concept of restricted parking of 1500 feet from Abbot Kinney and Rose Ave. They are proposing that businesses be allowed to park in neighborhoods two to four hours off and on during the day until 6 pm at which time residents will be allowed to park. It is Updates feeling that this should be extended to Lincoln Blvd. and parts of Washington Blvd.The following is the official post on the Venice Neighborhood Council web page cancelling the town hall.The VNC has postponed a scheduled April 4 Town Hall Meeting to learn about the legal settlement of the law suit against the California Coastal Commission for twice rejecting the City of Los Angeles’ application for the right to implement permit only parking restrictions on non-residents daily between 2-5 AM. VNC President Linda Lucks said “the California Coastal Commission, which has final jurisdiction over development along the coast and is mandated to protect public access will consider the settlement agreement among the parties to the suit in June, so there is plenty for the community to weigh in on whether or not they believe overnight-only parking restrictions will help residents, businesses and visitors.” The Town Hall will be rescheduled closer to the May meeting of the VNC, and the topic will be discussed at April 16 board meeting.
