From the VNC:

VNC Candidates

The new Board, elected on April 11th, consists of 7 Executive Officers and 14 Community Officers. LA City Council member Bill Rosendahl will be on hand to swear in the new Board. The meeting will open in memory of Lynne Newton, a member of the VNC Neighborhood Committee who passed away last week.

The new Board will hear a report on the actions of the Coastal Commission regarding Overnight Parking Districts and congratulate those involved in the Lincoln Place settlement.

Linda Lucks, the new VNC President said, “I’m thrilled with the enthusiasm and dedication of our new Board. It’s fitting that our role advising LA City government on the challenges we face in Venice begins with celebrating the Lincoln Place settlement. Venice is so dynamic, diverse and important to LA city life and we consequently lead the way on many of the issues that affect our region.”

In other business, the new Board will vote on funding requests for eleven Community Improvement Projects and on plans to erect a marker at the northwest corner of Venice and Lincoln where Japanese Americans in the Venice community lined up for bus transport to the Manzanar War Relocation Authority camp for the duration of World War II. The Board will also hear a report from its Abbot Kinney Parking Representatives on Food Trucks and valet parking on Abbot Kinney.

Snacks and coffee will be provided.

A detailed agenda will be posted on the internet at and at posting places in the community.

There is no charge for this event. It is open to the public. Comments are encouraged.
