Coastal Commission Votes No on Over Night Parking Restrictions

Saying that it was not consistent with the coastal act to limit use of the beach to only residents between 2-5 am, and what coastal commissioner Mary Shallenberger said was “not (the coastal commissions) job to be the balance between homeless and residents”, the coastal commission voted against overnight parking regulations in Venice today.

Other coastal commissioners thoughts were along the same lines. Ben Hueso said he would “advise the community to use other tools to achieve what they want” and Sara Wan said “serious social issues are not coastal act issues.”

This goes against what the majority of Venice residents voted for back in February–they wanted stricter overnight parking rules and ultimately more control over parking spots and the RVs that squat in the neighborhood. UPDATE: Today’s news is a total turnaround from an earlier Los Angeles Time story that stated that the staff of the California Coastal Commission had recommended approving permit parking zones in five areas. And to be clear, today’s vote basically this means that the RV contingent wins. [Yo Venice/Venice Paper] Share and Enjoy: […]
