Land Development Regulations: Coalition Calls on Venice City Council to Hold Adequate Public Hearings

Francesco Abbruzzino, The Uncensored Report, LLC

 

The next LDR meeting is Wednesday 6.22.  You can find more information at

Venice City Council to hold LDR public workshop 6/22

 

Letter from the coalition 

 

The proposed Venice Land Development Regulations will guide the growth and livability of our city for years to come. That’s why your current review of the draft LDRs is so critical.

 

A number of concerns and deficiencies within the draft LDR have been identified: lack of adequate protections for historic preservation, the environment and wildlife, as well as lack of constraints on commercial building in Planned Unit Developments. We, the undersigned, representing thousands of Venice voters, urgently call on our City Council members to commit to a thorough, fair and robust process to ensure adequate public input before a vote on the LDRs.

 

 

We request that the process be conducted in public, with a series of open workshops on specific areas of the LDRs in which residents and external experts can ask questions and make comments regarding the proposed rewrite of the Land Development Regulations. It should include sessions for open dialogue with Council members, without the constraints of a formal public hearing.

 

Please make this commitment to the voters of Venice.
