Camping Restrictions on Venice Beach to be Lifted

All camping restrictions of LAMC 63.44 from the Ocean to and including the Venice Boardwalk will not be enforced by the LAPD, according to Venice Field Deputy Nisa Kove.

This goes along with the City’s agreement ban on no enforcement of the LAMC 41.18, which has similar restrictions for Los Angeles. Apparently, the latter is voluntary by district and one councilman is not enforcing it in his district.

Meanwhile, Kove announced that the Venice Bridge Housing had 88 occupants in the adult section and 43 in the youth section. The full capacity should be 100/54. Based on the Ninth Circuit Court decision of an available bed for people on the street, one asks of the City where does enforcement stand?

“The law is being misapplied as it has been from the start,” according to one Fight Back Venice reader. “No legal reason 41.18 cannot be enforced — like most laws — on a person by person basis in Venice against anyone who is offered but refuses to take Bridge Home beds.”

US District Court Judge David O. Carter has an alliance that is removing homeless from the freeway areas for a start so enforcement of the City laws can start somewhere.

It all becomes confusing for both the homeless and residents. All parking restriction enforcement has been removed also until 1 October.

    this is an OUTRAGE. Biden is cutting deals with LAPD under the cover of the virus, bull crap. SO we lose a public beach in one of the most popular and expensive beach communities in the country?

    Mike Bonin is a self-righteous criminal, how can a politician do this without even consulting the community. There’s going to be feces all OVER the beach and disease, eventually Bubonic plague for residents and visitors.
