Planning to Study Retail Businesses in Venice

By Darryl DuFay

A motion has been made by Councilman Mike Bonin in the Planning and Land Use Management committee to study independent retail businesses in Venice, particularly on Ocean Front Walk.

A “strong local economy has resulted in the rising rents and the displacement of locally-owned independent retail businesses,”  read the motion. “Neighborhood-based businesses are important contributors to the identity of Venice and help to sustain the social fabric of the community by providing local services to residents in a walkable environment.”

    My name is Nick Antijello. Me and all my real estate salesman friends oppose affordable housing in Venice. We think what Venice needs is more unaffordable housing because we need to make a lot of money in commissions if we want to live here and there is more money to be made selling unaffordable housion

    Regurgitated press releases by a guy who despises Venice is not news. It’s just irritating to read.
