Councilmember Bonin Calls People of Venice Outraged by Police Murder “Outside Agitators" (tags)
During a Venice Town Hall meeting, Los Angeles City Councilmember Mike Bonin explained to 35-year Venice Beach resident David Busch that he is willing to talk to unhoused persons individually, but Mr. Bonin refuses to meet with “activists—outside agitators.” Mr. Busch has been requesting a meeting “organized by homeless people themselves” regarding public toilets, parking, camping, and other services. He asked, “Don’t you think after 2 years in office it is time you meet with us, rather than you just sending more police to this community?”

Open Letter to Venice LAPD re commercialized clean up NEEDED still continued... (tags)
The new ordinances that prohibit the previously allowed commercial resale [flea market stuff mainly] on Venice's Ocean Front Walk were being enforced by LAPD. Apparently some slide down and out has occured turning the OFW back into what it was before the City Ordinance was legally passed. Open letter letter here was written by [more than one] citizen who also work diligently to help Clean UP [and not tear down ] Our Venice Neighborhood
Venice Boardwalk has cleaned out commercial vendors ! (tags)
Take a walk down the Venice Boardwalk and be surprised ! the re-sale cheap commercial merchandise is not long proliferating and crowding the area with hawkers and flea-market-junk being the main things there. Now all sorts of art and artists are the west-sidewalk displays. What a change !
Venice Boardwalk new ordinances NEED your feedback too ! (tags)
LA City Parks Dept had a meeting to draft or discuss a new ordinance about changing the crass commercial junk being sold on Venice Beach. But who could find out where or when the meeting was held ? Could it be intentional that the outreach was limited or non existent even to those who WANTED to attend, to comment, to question their tax-paid decision-makers?
Venice Boardwalk ordinance draft looks like it's going to fail it's duties (tags)
Venice Boardwalk has been a big loss to the City- how it is seen by Los Angeles' tourist crowds, and to LA's own image as an artistic or art-supportive environment. Commercial vending of cheap re-sale-mdse. bought at any local wholesaler while using City sidewalk free spaces ruins any art scene. City Council doing a draft that looks bad so far.
Police choose new targets (tags)
Bill Rosendahl has brought a special squad of 21 LAPD officers into Venice, CA . Now that most of the Homeless Living in their cars and moterhomes have lost their vehicles... They now are forced to sleep on the sidewalk (not illegal) Having neutralized their targets, they are now targeting other groups of people to harass by intimidation and by impounding vehicles, Family Pets, or giving unwarranted parking tickets. I suspect these include Farmers, Raw foodists, Artists, Musicians, or any alternative or creative types.
