VNC Says No to Beach Ice Rink

Venice Neighborhood Council (VNC) said no to proposed ice rink at the Venice Beach.

Many speakers brought up the fact that there is a drought. The requirement for 39,000 gallons of water is not a viable plan. One person said it wasn’t just the water but the electricity to keep it cold. One Native-American brought up the fact that there is a drought and water is sacred.

Some asked why an ice rink. Many suggested a roller rink, if there has to be a rink.

Cecilia Castillo, council office field deputy, stated that the councilman was looking into a viable alternative to ice.
