Councilman Rosendahl on Draft Ordinance 42-15

Bill Rosendahl

From Councilman Bill Rosendahl:

Dear Friends-

Every few years, a court decision causes all sorts of problems for Venice Beach. As part of that unfortunate pattern, a federal judge in October threw out the City’s rules for allocating space and regulating noise on the boardwalk. As a result, we have a chaotic mix of unregulated vending and excessive noise.

My office has been working closely with the City Attorney to fix this situation and craft a replacement ordinance. We want to clear up the confusion on the boardwalk and make it enjoyable for everyone: tourists, residents, entertainers and artists.

Attached is the new proposed ordinance. There will be several opportunities to voice your opinion, including a public hearing tomorrow morning and an opportunity before the City Council in the coming weeks.

WHAT:
Board of Recreation and Parks Commissioners
(to view the special agenda, click here)

WHEN:
Wednesday, September 21 at 9:30 a.m.

WHERE:
Harbor City Recreation Center
24901 Frampton Ave
Harbor City, CA 90710

You are also invited to email me directly with your thoughts and feedback.

Thanks,

BILL ROSENDAHL
11th District
