Plans for Venice Median to be Unveiled 27 June

Plans for Venice Median will be unveiled for the first time Tuesday, June 27, 7 to 8:30 pm at the Pacific Resident Theatre, 703 Venice Blvd. This story originally stated they would be unveiled first at the Israel Levin Center 23 June. This was incorrect.

Each week Becky Dennison, director of Venice Community Housing, gives the forthcoming events regarding the Venice Median and provides answers to questions asked.

Questions and Answers

What is the topic for the presentation and discussion on 6/23? Why is it set up during business hours on a weekday?

The main topic of any meeting or event posted on this email list is the proposed affordable and permanent supportive housing development at the parking lots at Venice-Dell-Pacific.  We are presenting our plans and having dialogue about them at as many venues as possible.  Israel Levin Center chose the date and time for this meeting, as they are hosting and are meeting the needs of their users/members, but it is open to anyone who is interested.  We have another meeting the following week in the evening, and we have held community engagement events at varied times of day and on all days of the week throughout our process to meet the needs of varied schedules.

  1. To clarify: The Tuesday, 6/27 meeting at the Pacific Resident Theater on Venice Blvd is for the public. Please attend.

    If you cannot attend Tuesday there will be many other public meetings and/or you may host a gathering for your immediate neighbors.

    You dingbat Billy – You really think that an appreciable amount of Venice street dwellers will be housed in these units when completed three years from now? Applicants will be considered from all over the County. And what about all the people who do not get their canal adjacent apartments? Will they still be living the dream in tents in front of residents homes? Questions, questions, questions. And few answers.

    Let’s get this project approved already. We have a lot of people to house in Venice.
