News of Venice, CA and Marina del Rey CA

Encampment Update — 11 July 2019

Welcome to Farmer’s Market! Where are the signs that say you cannot camp on private property?

Ocean Ave between North and South Venice Blvd has not changed. North Venice has people camping in vans and cars and the vans are doing business in the street charging scooters. More tenters have come. Two tenters were on South Venice Blvd between Pacific and Dell.

It has been a couple of weeks since the last Encampment Update. Summarizing situation … Ocean Ave has gotten a little worse. Other than that, in general, the encampments have decreased in size. Only the wooden tents were at the Westminster Senior Center park. Hampton Drive, south of Rose, had only the one encampment across from Google. It was totally noncompliant. Hampton Drive, north of Rose, was clear meaning that all were up and out and the place had been cleaned. Fourth, south of Sunset, had a couple tenters, one of whom was not compliant. Fourth, south of Rose, had a couple tenters. Lincoln Blvd at Flower had only one tenter. One lady said the others had gone.

Carter near Lincoln had a couple hanging; homeless hang at the corner and make it a point to distribute trash all over the street.  Thatcher at Washington is an exception.  It has grown this week.  It use to be just one fellow but now it is more.


The encampments today are in close proximity to 3rd Ave.  The encampments that caused so much trouble are gone.  The most recent at Coeur d’Alene is gone.  Remember 7th Ave, Penmar Park, the Thai alley, Staples, Harding, Venice Way just to name a few?  These were tragedies.  They are gone because neighbors took action.
