Los Angeles City Council to Consider “Urgency Ordinance”

From ABC News:

And from Daily News Wire Services:

Amid outrage over RV dwellers allegedly dumping raw sewage on the streets of Venice, the Los Angeles City Council will consider calling for an “urgency ordinance” today that would prevent oversize vehicles from parking overnight at certain locations.

Councilman Bill Rosendahl, whose district includes Venice, called for prohibiting or limiting the parking of oversize vehicles on the area bounded on the east by Lincoln Boulevard, on the south by the Los Angeles County line, on the west by Ocean Front Walk and on the north by the border with the city of Santa Monica.

He said the restrictions should kick in between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m.

“Venice Beach is a residential area consisting of single and multi-family homes with inadequate parking,” Rosendahl said. “This is a problem exacerbated by the parking of oversized vehicles resulting in the inability of residents to find parking on their blocks as well as other issues adversely impacting their quality of life.”

The California Coastal Commission has twice denied the city’s attempts to establish resident-only “overnight parking districts” in Venice.

The council responded by passing an ordinance prohibiting vehicles of a certain size from parking overnight in Venice. Such a law does not require commission approval.

Tensions boiled over this month when it took activists several days to get city officials to summon cleanup crews to three Venice intersections where raw sewage had been dumped.

Venice residents are currently circulating petitions to ban oversized vehicles from parking on their specific blocks overnight.

While some beach areas are set up to accommodate RVs — such as Dockweiler State Beach, where overnight camping is allowed and holding tank pump-out stations are available — Venice is not.
