Tomorrow night at 7 the VNC will hear motions to rescind its earlier approval of 4 previously adopted motions brought by the Homelessness and Vehicular Occupancy Committee. Also on the agenda will be a presentation on Heath Care reform and a motion to ask the LA DWP to be more aggressive on solar sources for power.
The full slate is after the jump.
The Venice Neighborhood Council Board will hear a presentation on Health Care reform from Dr. Susie Baldwin, a member of “Physicians for a National Health Program” (PNHP). PNHP is an organization of over 16,000 American physicians advocating for single-payer national health insurance. Dr. Baldwin’s fact-filled slide presentation will cover some of the most striking advantages of a single-payer health care system. The meeting will be held at Westminster Elementary School Auditorium, 1010 Abbot Kinney Blvd, starting at 7:00pm on Tuesday, August 18th.

Dr. Baldwin’s presentation will follow statements from community members who are seeking to fill a vacancy on the Board resulting from the retirement of Dexter O’Connell from the position of Community Officer (according to recently completed research, Dexter was the youngest elected official in the United States when he was elected in 2007 to the VNC Board at age 16. He is leaving the Board to attend college at the University of Chicago. Please come to Tuesday’s meeting to say goodby to Dexter). A vote to select one of the nominees will take place at the VNC’s September board meeting.
In other business, the Council will hear motions to rescind its earlier approval of 4 previously adopted motions brought by the Homelessness and Vehicular Occupancy Committee. These motions to rescind, brought separately from two board members, result from the form and presentation of the motions adopted. If the motions to rescind are passed, substitute language will be considered at the Board’s September meeting.
A motion asking the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power to increase the amount of power it provides from solar sources will be considered, as well as approval of the neighborhood council’s Land Use and Planning Committee’s recommendation to deny a project that would site a hotel in the 300 block of Ocean Front Walk.
Snacks and coffee will be provided.
