Have Your Voice Heard On New Restaurants, Liquor Stores & Bars in Venice: Tonight

My Voice Matters is a free workshop for Venice residents on how to protest license applications, how to report problem alcohol businesses, and more.

The event was created in direct response to Venetians’ concerns that several new alcohol licenses up for consideration — many of which would operate a mere few feet from people’s homes — will severely compromise quality of life in their neighborhoods.

Venice has 3-4 times the allowable limit on alcohol outlets already and it grows every month, according to event organizers.

Tricia Keane, Planning Director for Councilmember Mike Bonin, will be on-hand to discuss alcohol license and alcohol-related problems in Venice.

Other topics will include:

• How to protest licenses at a state and local level
• How to limit alcohol outlet over-concentration
• How to request conditions be placed on alcohol businesses’ operations
• How to encourage the enforcement of alcohol outlets’ conditions
• How to hold problem outlets accountable for bad business practices

My Voice Matters will be facilitated by the Institute for Public Strategies, a non-profit organization that has been providing alcohol and other drug environmental prevention services to communities throughout Southern California and the nation for over 23 years. Claudia Martin, who has served as the Neighborhood Prosecutor for the Pacific Division for 9 years, will also attend to answer residents’ questions.

My Voice Matters will be held today, Wednesday, March 11 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at the Oakwood Recreation Center, 767 California Avenue, Venice
