KEEP VENICE STREETS FREE — HEARING @ CA COASTAL COMMISSION – THURS. JUNE 13

JATAUN_NOPDJune 6, 2013 at 5.00 pm, was the last day to submit letters, emails & petitions opposing Overnight Parking Districts (OPDs) in Venice.

BUT…we can still make our voices heard by attending the CA Coastal Commission (CCC) hearing next Thurs. June 13 which begins @ 8:30 am in Long Beach, CA.

If you are available on that day PLEASE join us in telling the CCC that you want to keep coastal access to Venice beach free and open to all, as stipulated by the 1976 CA Coastal Act; and, if you live in Venice, that you don’t want to have to pay to park on your street!

NOPDs supporters are meeting @ 7:00 am on Thurs. June 13 at Beyond Baroque, 681 Venice Blvd., Venice, CA 90291 –

We will be busing and/or carpooling to Long Beach – contact David Busch for info. about bus/carpools.

PLEASE COME IF YOU CAN, ESPECIALLY IF YOU LIVE IN VENICE.

The hearing will be held at City of Long Beach, City Council CHAMBERS, 333 West Ocean Boulevard, Long Beach, California 90802 (415) 407-3211

FREE_SPACE

An unprecedented 15 miles of car-free space

Los Angeles will celebrate its 6th CicLAvia on Sunday, April 21, and for the first time, the route will connect the city’s historic center at El Pueblo de Los Angeles in downtown and the bustling boardwalk of Venice Beach by way of Venice Boulevard, creating an unprecedented 15 miles of car-free space on City roads for strolling, biking, playing, and experiencing the city from a new perspective.  The new route showcases the urban and natural beauty unique to Los Angeles, offering a rich tour of the city’s history, diverse neighborhoods, and majestic views of the Pacific Ocean.

CicLAvia is Los Angeles’ adaptation of Ciclovía, a phenomenon that began more than 30 years ago in Bogotá, Colombia, where every Sunday 80 miles of streets become closed to car traffic with the goals of reducing pollution and encouraging a healthy lifestyle.
