Mar Vista Community Council Board of Directors Meeting

At the Neighborhood Council of Westchester/Playa meeting last night, many community members spoke against the Playa Del Rey "Safe Streets" program - a similar project to the Mar Vista "Great Streets - Venice Blvd." pilot project.

The NCWP Board voted unanimously in favor of a motion regarding this issue.

We hope that Mar Vista Community Council will develop an even stronger motion to encourage Councilmember Bonin to reverse the lane reduction on Venice Blvd.

Here is what that motion might look like:

Great Streets Venice Blvd. Motion to:

1) Request the implementation of mitigation measures designed to lessen the impact of the lane reductions on Venice Blvd. and,

2) Request that the Los Angeles Department of Transportation and/or the CD11 Council Office immediately provide a copy of any and all traffic studies done in advance of the commencement of the lane closures included in the Great Streets Venice Blvd. project and,
a) Provide any available data regarding traffic on the community streets impacted by the Great Streets Venice Blvd. project for the area bounded by Sepulveda Blvd. to the East, Lincoln Blvd. to the West, Culver to the South and National Blvd. to the North; and,
b) Provide a detailed plan for traffic enforcement for the next 90 days; and,
c) Provide written explanation of the feasibility of reducing Venice Blvd. to two lanes each way between Inglewood Blvd and Beethoven St.; and,
d) Respond in writing to all community suggestions and questions given at this meeting;
e) Direct the MVCC Great Streets Ad Hoc Committee to develop alternative and immediate mitigation measures for the Great Streets Venice Blvd. Initiative; and
f) set metrics for the success of the Great Streets Venice Blvd. project.

We have visited the LAGreatService.org/venice and LAGreatStreets.org/benchmarking web pages and the traffic studies, feasibility analysis and metrics for success are not there.

Please come to the Mar Vista Community Council Board of Directors meeting on Tuesday, June 13 at 7 PM at the Mar Vista Park Recreation Center.  Make your voice heard about this controversial neighborhood issue.
