Another special Venice Neighborhood Council (VNC) meeting will be held on Thursday, April 7, 2011 at 7:00pm at Oakwood Recreation Center, 767 California Avenue, Venice.
A previous Venice Neighborhood Council (VNC) meeting was held on March 22, 2011 to discuss LAMC 85.11 proposed by Councilman Bill Rosendahl as part of the “ROADMAP TO HOUSING” program (formerly “Vehicles to Homes”), touted by L.A. City as a solution for people living in their vehicles on the streets of Venice. (See video above.)
This program will be run by PATH (People Assisting The Homeless) and requires that vehicle-dwellers who sign on to the program park “safely” in lots adjacent Rosendahl’s council offices in West L.A. and Westchester, respectively.
While, originally, Rosendahl promised “safe parking” in Venice he has since caved in to pressure from the Venice Stakeholders Assoc., headed up by Mark Ryavec – the same Mark Ryavec who tried, unsuccessfully, to bring permit parking to the streets of Venice.
Venice community members, including vehicle-dwellers voiced their opinion and asked questions of City and PATH representatives at the meeting.
