Venice Stakeholders Assn. Files Suit Against Costal Commission

The LA Times is reporting that the Venice Stakeholders Association has filed a lawsuit against the Costal Commission.

OPD Coastal Commision

From the LATimes:

The agency’s staff recommended that the permit parking zones be approved, but commissioners in June rebuffed the idea, contending they were being asked to resolve a social issue rather than a beach access issue.

Mark Ryavec, a leader of the Venice Stakeholders Assn., which filed the lawsuit, said the commission thus ducked its “legal mandate to protect coastal waters.”

“Despite hearing of repeated instances of the owners of recreational vehicles leaking and/or dumping their sewage directly into yards, streets and storm drains, which drain directly to the ocean, the commission failed to act to protect the coastal water,” he said.

More to come, we are sure!
