VNC Town Hall 12-2-10

Tonight at 6:30PM the Venice Neighborhood Council will be holding a “Town Hall” at Westminster Elementary School.

SouthPark-NotThisShitAgain

Back in September, The VNC originally called for this Town Hall to address illegal sewage dumping by RV Dwellers in Venice. The VNC meeting was scheduled to be within a week or two of Councilman Bill Rosendahl’s Town Hall (September 23rd) on the same subject matter, but the VNC postponed it for months while trying to slip the issue of providing sump trucks for RV’s and adding toilets to sidewalks for the RV Dwellers into 8am mid-week meetings.

It appears that the VNC has now “re-branded” the “town hall”. Despite ongoing sewage dumping from RV dwellers illegally sleeping on the streets of  Venice, The VNC wants to make this about “preparedness issues” in Venice and “tourists” from places like the UK and Canada.

Earth to the VNC: It ain’t the Brits and Canadians on Holidays that are creating these problems.

Please stop white-washing and redirecting the issues to support your social service friends. What is actually going on here? Linda Lucks, the VNC President, has still refused to provide information on what social services she collects money from. If the VNC tries to get sump trucks or portable toilets placed or a city dumping station placed in Venice to enable illegal RV Dwelling, you can bet there will be a serious investigation into the conflict of interests of the VNC Board Members.

VNC President Linda Lucks is also a financial supporter of The Venice Community Housing Corporation and friends with some of the people presently suing the City of LA. One would assume if there was an ethics group that looked over the VNC they would likely tell Lucks to recuse herself from involvement in these issues.

From the VNC:

Venice is the number one public visitor destination in SoCal.

Millions of people visit us every year.

Are we prepared?

Visitors come from Rosemead and Ventura, from Canada and New York, the UK and Ethiopia – from all over the world. Mostly they come here to have fun, but a few come here to live. Some buy houses, some rent apartments and some, unfortunately, live on the streets.

For the most part, visitors are great for Venice and the City of Los Angeles. But we pay a price for their visits. We must share our limited space and provide clean, attractive sites to experience and enjoy. And all those people need sanitation facilities and streets that are safe.

Even if we didn’t supply these services for our visitors, we would need them for ourselves – because if we didn’t, imagine what we’d have to deal with when the visitors left. We’d have trash on our streets, overflowing garbage cans, gardens and alleys that smell of urine, and feces to clean up.

Whoops – isn’t that what we have?

VNC Town Hall Meeting – Does the City do enough to deal with the visitors that come to Venice?

· Help identify the challenges the City faces to provide services for those visitors.
· Express your opinions and suggestions about potential answers to those challenges.

Thursday, December 2nd at 6:30PM
1010 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Westminster Elementary School Auditorium
Parking available – enter from Westminster

Snacks will be provided – the meeting is open to everyone!
