Bonin Invokes Section 245 of City Charter to Venice Place Project

Councilman Mike Bonin invokes Section 245 of the LA City Charter over Venice Place which will give him authority over the West LA Area Planning Commission.

This project has been in the works for eight years and just recently received planning approval, having previously gone thru the Venice Neighborhood Council.

The motion was folded into a group of motions voted on by the City Council, 25 August.

Members of the Venice Neighborhood Council were not alerted to the motion, violating the Empower LA Early Warning System.

    Under Boinn’s leadership the only lives that have improved is the developer. Certainly not the homeless or the residents.

    I think it will be futile to fight. It seems most if not all of the measures to benefit homelessness have passed regardless of protests and voting from community. Perhaps it is something to accept instead of going crazy fighting it and then realizing you are going to lose. The reality is these homeless people have nowhere to go and the weather in Los Angeles is amazing. Better to give them a designated spot than having them sleep outside by your front door.

    Venice reaped what it has sewed electing Mike Bonin Now who are you going to vote for?

    Mike Bonin hates Venice and those who are trying to make this community better. The owner of this property has been jumping through bureaucratic hoops for a decade to construct a small and unassuming boutique hotel. There is no justification for this kind of red tape and obstruction by this incompetent and unqualified elected official who has a 25% approval rating from Venetians!

      I’ve lived in Venice my entire life. The community doesn’t want this project. We don’t need a hotel. I hate Mike Bonin, but thank god.

    Welcome to Joe Biden’s America. Enough said!!!
