MTA Group to Reach Out to Venetians About MTA Lot Development in September

Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) plans to get with the Venice Community in September to work out plans for the MTA, Metro site at Sunset between Pacific and Main.

MTA, and only MTA, refers to the project as “Division 6 — Venice.”  So many names — Metro, MTA, Division 6 — all the same.

From MTA Division 6 – Venice News: 

In September, Metro staff will launch the Joint Development process for the site, starting with a series of charrettes (according to dictionary —  “a meeting in which all stakeholders in a project attempt to resolve conflicts and map solutions.”), workshops and focus groups to develop shared vision for reuse of the site. This effort will include outreach to community organizations, residents, businesses, residential and commercial property owners, governmental agencies, and religious, educational and cultural institutions. Ultimately, Metro will document the input and feedback gathered through the public visioning process in Development Guidelines that will set forth the community’s expectations for the future development on the site. Sign up for the Division 6 mailing list if you’d like to be informed of the upcoming meetings and events.
