II VNC Support for Safe RV Pilot Parking Program
Linda Lucks ( on behalf of Neighborhood Committee:

Whereas the issue of RV's parked in Venice has long resulted in media attention, anguish, anxiety and anger by many Venice stakeholders;

Whereas Councilman Bill Rosendahl, at the urging of the VNC, researched the models for safe parking programs that work in other municipalities (Santa Barbara and Eugene, Oregon);

Whereas the Venice Neighborhood Committee feels that a pilot program may indeed provide a partial solution; Whereas Councilman Rosendahl submitted a motion before City Council to establish a pilot program in CD 11 to test the feasibility of such a program Citywide,

The VeniceNC Neighborhood Committee voted unanimously to ask the VNC to send a letter of support to City Council and Mayor Villaraigosa in support of Councilman Rosendahl's Council motion #_______ to establish a pilot program to find safe parking locations, tbd by permit & case management services, in CD 11.
