Rosendahl Letter to Public Works Board Requests Denial of Zipline Appeal

Update: the appeal was denied earlier today. The Venice Zipline project will now go before the Coastal Commission.

From Councilman Bill Rosendahl:

August 9, 2012
ATTN: Commissioners of the Board of Public Works
RE: Letter of Support for the Venice Zip Line

Dear Board:

I am writing to respectfully request you deny the appeal and approve the issuance of the Local Coastal Development Permit (CDP) 12-03 in connection with the Venice Zip Line Project.

Rosendahl Zip Line

During this economic crisis, all City departments have had to learn to do more with less. Permitting the Venice Zip Line would be a wonderful opportunity for a private-public partnership that could generate some much needed revenue for Los Angeles City Recreation and Parks to maintain Venice Beach. If approved, the Zip Line would be permitted for a three month trial period which will allow the City to assess whether there are traffic, noise or other issues attributed to this project.

I have requested the majority of the revenue collected by Recreation and Parks to go directly to Venice Beach for improved maintenance operations at the restrooms and boardwalk. I believe the Venice Zip Line will minimize the impact of the current budget on Venice Beach.

This project has my support because businesses and residents have expressed a need for additional maintenance at the Venice Beach Recreation Center.

Regards,

BILL ROSENDAHL
Councilmember, 11th District
