City Administrative Officer Miguel Santana will announce the fate of the two Venice Properties — Venice Median and the Thatcher Yard before Thanksgiving, according to David Graham-Caso, CD11 communications director. Saturday’s LA Times article said it would be the week of 14 to 18 November.

The Venice Median is that area between North and South Venice Blvd at Pacific zoned open space and now used for beach parking. The Thatcher Yard is area in the Oxford Triangle formerly used for city sanitation and street services. Both are set to be rezoned, and according to the specifications, would allow for building 260 units on Venice Median and 106 on Thatcher yard.

Opening date for the Westminster Senior Center as a storage facility for the Venice homeless has not been set. The San Pedro storage for the homeless has been shelved according to the Los Angeles Times. There was a public outcry when citizens found out about proposed facility.

LA Times article said a mobile storage plan was being considered. Venice Neighborhood Council Homeless Committee proposed a mobile storage plan in early September, but it was not considered supposedly because it could not be brought into service in time for 1 November opening that coincides with the shelter openings.

At present the Westminster facility is not open and an opening date has not been announced.
