VCH Submits Plans for Reese Davidson Community 140-Unit Project

Venice Community Housing (VCH) submitted their 140-unit affordable/PSH project to City for City approval, 12 December.

Project is now called the Reese Davidson Community and is located between North and South Venice Blvd, between Pacific and Dell. It is a joint effort with Hollywood Community Housing.

The 140 units will have 50 percent for formerly homeless households, 25 percent for low-income artists, and 25 percent for other low-income households. The site will also have a community arts center, small scale retail, public parking, residential and commercial parking, wide setbacks from the sidewalk, various open and green spaces, and multiple opportunities for public art. Project must provide for 188 parking spaces that were available on property.

There will be eight full-time staff, four of whom will live on-site, providing the capacity for 24-hour staff coverage. The height of the residential buildings vary from one to three stories and there will be a taller feature to define the corner of North Venice Blvd. and Pacific Ave.

The Environmental Impact Report (EIR) process is tentatively scheduled to begin 14 January, 5 to 7 pm at the Oakwood Recreation Center.

    Venice is under attack, they ruining our NEIGHBORHOODS with their liberal agenda, 3 new shelters in RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOODS in 3.5 mi is insane, we must come together and organize, we can no longer sit back and wait for someone else to stop the madness, this is happening now because of the holiday season, when many people are away, they know what they are doing, we must be proactive and resilient, my understanding is the city only listen to huge, organized presence at city council meetings and lawsuits, let’s stop being individuals and come together to save our community
