TO PRESERVE OUR UNIQUE COMMUNITY CHARACTER FOR GENERATIONS TO COME

As many of you know, neighbors and activists in Venice have been fighting a series of violations of the planning and zoning codes in Venice, perpetrated by the City Planning Dept., that are destroying the character and charm of Venice neighborhoods, while at the same time, eliminating existing affordable housing.

So, we think it’s time to bring a lawsuit against the City of Los Angeles for violating State, City and Local Coastal Planning and Zoning laws with regard to development projects in Venice. Many of the developments are being planned as small lot subdivisions and “mansionization” projects, that are beginning to proliferate and threaten our special, unique community of Venice Beach.

The lawsuit will be brought by Sabrina Venskus, of Venskus & Associates, the law firm that has successfully represented a number of landmark cases to date: a key attorney representing environmentalists who forced Playa Vista’s developers and the Los Angeles City Council to reduce the scope of the luxury housing and commercial project threatening the Ballona Wetlands ecosystem.

Faulty findings in small lot subdivision (SLS) and mansionization projects that do not comply with the Venice Coastal Zone Specific Plan’s mass scale and character stipulations, and other zoning regulations, must be challenged and overturned if we are to have a chance to SAVE VENICE!

Together, as citizens, we need to continue to work to stop the City’s illegal conduct, so we can preserve affordable housing and the quality of life of existing residents and businesses in our precious Venice community.

So, it’s time to put on the gloves and take it to the next level.
