ACTION ALERT: Your Emails Needed ASAP

5 July 17

We need EVERYONE who wants the 3rd lanes for cars returned to Venice Blvd. to write an email to the Mar Vista Community Council today.

Go to Sample Email

Some of the MVCC Board members refuse to listen to the community and are purposely encouraging bicycle and pedestrian activist groups to send a flood of support letters the MVCC and the Venice Neighborhood Council (VNC) in favor of the current configuration of the Great Streets - Venice Blvd. "pilot" project. 

These MVCC Board members and activist groups are encouraging people from all over the city to email the MVCC and VNC to silence our voices and speak in support of lane reductions.

We need YOU, the stakeholders who are living this traffic nightmare everyday to write an email and say "NO! I use Venice Blvd and I DO NOT WANT THIS!!!"

Please, let's not let a small and vocal group - who don't care how long it takes for you to get to work, the doctor or your kids baseball game - speak for us. Please, send an email and let you voice be heard! Send your email no later than 11:59 PM on July 10th.  

Then join us July 11th at the MVCC Board of Directors meeting to show them what community really looks like.


RE: Restore the 3rd lanes for cars on Venice Blvd NOW

Dear Board Members of the Mar Vista Community Council and the Venice Neighborhood Council:

As community representatives, you need to listen to the community of Venice Blvd. stakeholders and support any and all policy motions that immediately reverse the lane reductions and return Venice Blvd. to the long established six lane configuration.

I believe that Venice Blvd. must be improved with the safety of everyone - drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians - in mind.  I don't believe this Great Streets - Venice Blvd. "pilot" project is the solution, and thousands of Venice Blvd. stakeholders want this lane reduction reversed NOW.

As a [student, older adult, mom, cyclist, person with a disability, business owner, etc], I request the immediate return of the 3rd lanes for cars on Venice Blvd. NOW.
