Right now the news is the virus and we have the web site for Venice tally, the LA Times, and the local TV Stations. Other than the specific Venice count, you are bombarded with news.

    @Darryl DuFay, the article didn’t mention what beaches Bonin is considering. Where did hear that the Venice Beach parking lot WON’T be used? Can you tell us what beach parking lots are being considered?

      The beach parking lots in Mike Bonin’s CD11 are in Venice south of the City of Santa Monica to the pier at Washington Blvd. The following comment plus the article was sent to VeniceUpdate. What was printed was editorial interpretation.

      “Below is the information about Venice that you don’t want to miss. You will notice that the article does not use the word Venice, where the beach parking lots are located, only “Westside” district. We shall see but don’t be surprised if this actually occurs.”
