THE CITY PLANNING COMMISSION VOTED UNANIMOUSLY TO GRANT OUR APPEAL! THANKS TO EVERYONE IN THE COMMUNITY WHO CONTRIBUTED.
You’re in the right place if you’re concerned about the proposed plans for a 15-unit development at 522 S. Venice, which will add a new driveway for 30 cars on Mildred Ave. at Ocean Ct. (right near Kim’s Market).
Residents have almost unanimously opposed these plans due to the added dangers of the driveway on a hazardous stretch of Mildred Ave., the lack of adequate setbacks off of public land, the extreme height (much taller than any homes in the Silver Triangle or Washington Way.), and the extreme density of the plans. The Venice Neighborhood Council has also voted unanimously against the development (the city of L.A. doesn’t seem to care). This property has fenced in a strip of public land on Venice (the city has failed to act on it), and the plans include giving this land to the developer.
If you’d like to make a difference, there are two things you should do:
1) Attend the Public Hearing on 12/4/13
2) Write an email today!

We’ll have more details at this website in coming weeks, and perhaps organize a bus (or two) to help take people to the hearing (the parking is very difficult near the building). Note that the location is only about 3 miles from Venice!
