Fences and Hedges Task Force, Yo!

Tomorrow night there will be a meeting to discuss front hard hedges and fences in Venice. We are talking compliance, citations and substantial monetary fines for greenery and fences that are above 3’6″ … OUCH ! While I understand the perspective of wanting to keep the streets scenic and not just miles of gates of some sort or the other (greenery included) … from the point of view of a resident it is really nice to grow plants high enough that passerby are not staring in your windows while you walk around your home and yard. They are also nice for safety! Everyone should be allowed to let some light in through their windows without having peepers peep, right?

I suppose everything around here eventually changes. Remember when the canals looked like this?!

  • Yes, I remember when the canals looked like that and no one really cared either. It wasn’t as touristy then as it is now.

  • Boy, this is silly. no regulation on the fences between you and your neighbors, just the front of your house. The nail in the coffin of the Venice weird.

  • I live in venice. Shouldn’t we be more concerned with the gangs, drugs, and public urination before we tackle fence height issues? Just stating priorities…..

  • OK so I will post about this but it seems that the meeting was just to get some ideas and opinions out in the open, not to resolve anything. The Venice Neighborhood Council website has some interesting comments about this topic.

  • the whole country wasnt as touristy, but things today are just different and we need to amend the laws so that home owners wont be fined for living the way we already live.

    our fences and hedges arent the death of weird or the end of friendly neighbors! I totally agree that the priorities are all wrong here; once there is no more gang activity on my street, I’ll be willing to talk about fences. not a moment before.

    also, what about people who bought houses with fences already built? Should they be liable?
