Council Members Discuss 500-Foot School and Park Limits for Homeless

The LA Times had an article about the discussion the City Council members had Tuesday regarding the proposed 500-foot restriction from schools and parks they want to impose on the homeless.

This would definitely impact Venice because the beach would be off limits as would most of 3rd Ave. Both areas are dense homeless areas. One side feels that this is criminalizing homeless and the other side feels that there has to be restrictions for safety and livability for residents.

Venice is between 32,000 and 40,000 in population and yet 1000 homeless are dictating the terms and changing the lifestyles for the 32 – 40,000 residents.

The motion is to go back to the Homeless and Poverty committee to incorporate suggestions.
