No Restrooms at 671 Rose; Councilman Working with VNC Homeless Committee

“No restrooms are being proposed for 671 Rose,” was Chief of Staff David Graham-Caso’s answer to placement of restrooms at 671 Rose.

Graham-Caso went on to state that “Adding restrooms to Venice — so tourists and people living on the street have alternatives to using alleys and doorsteps as restrooms — has been something Councilmember Bonin has been discussing since he first offered his Venice Homelessness Solutions plan in 2015.

“The Venice Neighborhood Council (VNC) Homelessness Committee passed a resolution in support of opening additional restrooms, and Councilmember Bonin has been working with the VNC and neighbors in Venice to explore both opening existing beach restrooms 24/7, as well as adding mobile restrooms to the neighborhood.”

Kip Pardue, who is a rotating member of the VNC Homeless Committee, published a document early Tuesday morning that contained wording from homeless activist David Busch stating that there would be portable restrooms installed at 671 Rose. In the letter Busch thanked Councilman Mike Bonin.

To add to the mystery, the Board of Recreation and Parks cancelled their monthly meeting scheduled for tomorrow. Their agenda stated they were to vote on the opening of the cluster of restrooms on the beach at Horizon.

The problem with opening beach restrooms is that there is a beach curfew from midnight to 5 am that covers the east side of the boardwalk to the ocean.

    Hi my name is David Busch, and I would love to see the words attributed to me that suggest that “portable restrooms would be installed at 671 Rose Ave:”

    Groundworks Coffee.

    Perhaps –if it is not too much to ask –these alleged words could be printed here. Rather than just remain as unattributed rumor.

    I have never sent any emails to Kip Pardue. However it currenrtly does appear likely that veniceupdate also relys on a Russian troll farm for it’s sources.
