VNC Parking and Transportation Committee will Hold a Special Meeting 13 Feb

Venice Neighborhood Council (VNC) Parking and Transportation Committee will hold a special meeting 13 February, 7 pm, at the Canal Club. The purpose of the meeting is to provide a “community impact statement” regarding possibly losing valuable property to affordable housing when it could be used to help with the parking crisis that exists now in Venice.

This community impact statement is in response to Councilman Mike Bonin’s motion (19-0072)that will go before the City Council to ask for a feasibility study of taking the Venice median parking lot and making it an affordable housing project. The motion asks for City agencies to do the community impact statement and the fiscal impact statement.

The councilman has not asked for the Venice Neighborhood Council to provide a community impact statement in violation of the City Charter, Section 907, which states:

Sec. 907. Early Warning System.
The Regulations shall establish procedures for receiving input from neighborhood councils prior to decisions by the City Council, City Council Committees and boards and commissions. The procedures shall include, but need not be limited to, notice to neighborhood councils as soon as practical, and a reasonable opportunity to provide input before decisions are made. Notices to be provided include matters to be considered by the City Council, City Council Committees, and City boards or commissions.
