VNC BOARD MEETING – MARCH 15th @ Westminster School 1010 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice –
Among other agenda items the VNC will hear a presentation from City Council District 11 staff member Arturo Piña on draft Ordinance to allow lodging in vehicles (LAMC 85.11 – Roadmap to Housing Program) rather than amending LAMC City Ordinance 85.02 which prohibits sleeping in vehicles.
The new ordinance is scheduled for a hearing by the City’s Transportation Committee on March 23, and voting by the full City Council on April 6. The presentation, including an update on the Vehicles to Homes contract between Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) and People Assisting the Homeless (PATH), will take the form of a report to the Neighborhood Council; no discussion will be heard at the VNC’s March 15 Board meeting.
Snacks and coffee will be provided.
A detailed agenda will be posted on the internet at http://www.VeniceNC.org and at posting places in the community.
Note: Depending on the report and proposed revisions to 85.02, a special meeting of the VNC Board may be scheduled in advance of the City’s Transportation Committee meeting to allow time to hear from the public and to consider action.
