Second LCP Workshop in August


Second Local Coastal Plan (LCP) workshop will be 8 August 2:30 to 7:30 pm Venice Public Library, 501 Venice Blvd.

At present, ​Venice does not have a certified Local Coastal Program (LCP). In addition to the Coastal Act requiring that coastal communities prepare a LCP, the Venice Coastal Zone’s Land Use Plan (or LUP, certified in 2001) and Implementation Plan (updated but not certified in 2004) are ready for updating.

Much has changed during the past 15 years. In addition to the coastal zones that are not yet certified, like Venice, many of the LCPs that were certified in the 1980s, 1990s, and early 2000s are outdated and would benefit from updates to reflect changed conditions, new information and knowledge, and new programs and policies, especially those related to climate change and sea level rise.
