LAMC 85.02 Was Extended or Still in Effect



Note:  Someone asked Update if LAMC 85.02 had been extended.  Taylor Bazley, Venice Deputy, said it had been extended.  Article written last year indicates that it would not sunset until December.  So no matter which is true it is still in effect.   The following article was written last year.

By Darryl DuFay

City Council’s Homeless and Poverty committee recommends extending LAMC 85.02 for another 18 months from 1 July of this year when it is scheduled to expire and create an enforceable buffer zone around current “Safe Parking” zones.
The motion stated:

If communities could see a direct benefit to having services for the homeless in their neighborhoods, it would be easier to launch programs such as Safe Parking. For example, if there is a Safe Parking lot in a neighborhood, there should be increased enforcement of LAMC 85.02 within a three block radius of the program and a no vehicle dwelling restriction in that buffer zone.

THEREFORE MOVE that the City Council Request the City Attorney and instruct LAPD and other relevant departments to report back on the current implementation of LAMC 85.02 and proposed amendments including the creation of an increased enforcement zone within a set distance from Safe Parking locations.”

    VOTE OUT BONIN! There is no reason that LAMC 85.02 extension should be held hostage to a neighborhoods “requirement” to host services for the homeless in their neighborhoods. These are residential neighborhoods, and Bonin and Bazely (Bonin’s boy wonder)are creating long term consequences for our residents. SOLVE THE PROBLEM!! FOR GOD SAKES–SOLVE THE PROBLEM. Right now, Bonin and Bazely are “a marketing campaign”.
