City of Venice Town Council

An independent voice of Venetians

Venice Town Council meets June 7

The independent Venice Town Council is meeting at 7pm Monday, June 7 at the Methodist Church Auditorium, 2210 Lincoln Blvd.

The topic will be how to fight against permit parking (Overnight Parking Districts, OPDs) that Los Angeles is attempting to impose on us. The motiviation for the permit parking is to evict those who live in RVs from Venice.

If you can’t come on Monday night, please come to the Coastal Commission meeting on June 10. OPDs are item number 14 on the agenda. It’s at the Marina del Rey hotel, 13534 Bali Way, MdR (same place as last year).

The Town Council is a democratic organization of Venetians that is not affiliated in any way with the city of Los Angeles. Please support it with your presence on Monday.

——-

Resolution on Whole Foods Market
Whereas, Whole Foods Market is moving into our community at Rose Avenue and Lincoln Blvd. and will make a large profit from Venice customers,
And Whereas, Whole Foods will be competing with other supermarkets in Venice and the surrounding community that have unionized workforces.
And Whereas, many stores and shopping centers including WalMarts, KMarts and others allow RV camping,   

Therefore, Be It Resolved:

1. That Whole Foods give priority to hiring disadvantaged youths and adults from the Venice community.

2. That Whole Foods respect the rights of its employees to form a union and bargain collectively without interference from the employer.

3. That Whole Foods allow RVs and other mobile Venetians to use its parking lot when the store is not open.
