Bonin agrees the location by Westminster Elementary is not ideal but argues anything is better than nothing for now.

There was a smattering of applause and a few cheers, but these were drowned out by a thunder of boos when Councilmember Mike Bonin announced the plan to turn the old Westminster Seniors Center at 1234 Pacific Ave., in Venice into a storage facility to help the Venice homeless community.

Rose and 3rd. A bedroom for someone without a house.

Close to 300 had crammed into the school hall at 1010 Abbot Kinney Blvd on September 9. At the back and along the sides it was standing room only. Councilmember Bonin had called the community meeting to provide updates and get feedback on the 18-point plan he had introduced six months prior, to reduce homelessness in Venice.

Blocking the streets of Venice. Right now there is nowhere else for homeless people to store their belongings.

While it was only one small element of the overall plan, where the community stood on the issue of the Westminster storage facility was the hottest topic of the night. The issue will, no doubt, continue to be a cause of much angst in the community throughout 2017.

The Sidewalk Café has given locals and tourists a front row seat to the craziness of Venice Beach.

Also in September, on Friday the 23rd, celebrated their 40th Anniversary.

The much-loved restaurant has given locals and tourists a front row seat to the craziness of the Venice Beach boardwalk for 40 years. Check them out on the Boardwalk at 1401 Ocean Front Walk, Venice.
