Venice Update

News of Venice, CA and Marina del Rey CA

Encampment Update — 10 December

Penmar Park west of golf course is definitely the worst of the encampments if for no other reason than the trash accumulated.  Encampments were observed Thursday in the rain.

This is all trash.

Homeless are living with in this.  Homeowners are next to this.  This is a sanitation nightmare that should be taken care of immediately.

Venice Blvd, north and south, were clear and clean from Abbot Kinney to Pacific.  Lake, Staples (beautiful), Harding were clean and cleared.  Harrison had one person. Carter had one person and then that person was gone. Not allowing solicitation at the highway intersections has deterred many a camper. The Canal encampments are still there. Hampton had several tents but for the most part were ADA compliant.

Ocean Ave between North and South Venice Blvd had one encampment and one encampment that had abandoned the site, leaving his garbage.

Ocean Front Walk from Rose to Navy at the wall with the mosaics was filled with campers. Some on both sides of wall and all were trying to stay dry.

Encampments were found throughout the walk streets between Ocean Front Walk and the Speedway.

Ocean Front Walk, the area between Ocean Front Walk and Speedway, 3rd Ave are not covered by the Encampment Update.

    The ACLU has convinced the city that what is otherwise considered trash to any sane person is the “possession” of a homeless person, and thus cannot be touched without being tagged and bagged, and held in safekeeping. Just more of the homeless-industrial complex’s parallel universe, courtesy of the “compassionate” social justice warriors.

    I would like to see the Venice residents stage a protest to let our elected officials know this is unacceptable in our community.

    Eric Garcetti is spending 150 thousand per bed to house the homeless in Venice Beach at a cost of 1,200 per sq foot. He sure has solved the problem. Crime is up 50% in Venice.
