B Stewart Oscars (310-305-8248; stewart.oscars@gmail.com): see this as a short discussion point for ad com rather than a motion for the board but i do not know where else to note it. i think our budding practice of spreading board motions over at least two meetings is inviting expanded discussion of those topics in the community and ad com should use this agendizing tool as often as possible.

C Challis Macpherson (310-822-1729; challis.macpherson@verizon.net): Submit a new design for VNC stationary, for all VNC letters, committee agendas and committee reports. Design to be submitted to ADCOM February 9th.

E Yolanda Gonzalez (firstmateyo@yahoo.com): I am requesting to have on the agenda, a request from the General Board a letter to be sent to Bill Rosendahl for the record, and support of our General VNC board to meet with Captain MacDonald from LAPD through one of the case workers of our field office to look into the prescription of marijuana permits that are being given to young adults ages 21 and over for NONE terminal or extreme medical reasons for which is was intended for. Which in return this young adults turn around and distribute to friends or may be selling outside of their scope. Captain MacDonald has agreed to meet with me and a representative, because this requires legislation at the local level of our city of Los Angeles and then needs to be taken afterwards at the state level. But what is important NOW, through our city of LA, is for Bill Rosendahl to make a motion of law to City Council as to its distribution and prescription with our City limits, as they have it in other Cities. It is of great urgency because it is falling into the hands of gang activity. I regret to put this request in at the last minute, but I was just with Captain MacDonald thursday and mentioned to him the problem which I had to face personally. I need only 10 minutes of your precious time. I am requesting from the board to take action of the above mention and consider this as urgent to Bill Rosendahl and City Council.

All VNC board and committee members and stakeholders are invited to receive training to help support the community when a large disaster event occurs. Attendees will have photos taken so ARCGLA identification can be issued to become an affiliated Red Cross Disaster Volunteers.
[Postponed to February AdCom]

C William (Bill) Bean (wjbean@gmail.com): We have a need to hire Census workers. Workers need to be eighteen or older, be able to take forty hours of paid training, and be willing to work part-time evenings and weekends. I would like to present information, pay fliers, and more specific requirements for employment to the board.

The U.S. Census would also like make use of donated space for testing and training. Testing is a two hour process. Training would require space for one week (5 work days) or an evening weekend schedule. Both require ample parking, restroom facilities, and adequate seating for 24 persons per session. Training will begin the weeks of March 30 and April 6, 2009. Testing any time through the end of March and possibly beyond.

A From Neighborhood Committee
[Postponed to Feb 9 AdCom to be 1st item of Feb 17 Bd Mtg New Business – 15 min discussion & then vote]

I Linda Lucks (310-745-3240/310-450-2554; Lindalucks@aol.com) on behalf of Neighborhood Committee: At its meeting on 12/8/08 the Neighborhood Committee UNANIMOUSLY approved recommendation of the following motions for Board approval:

(i) The VNC Board shall rescind its previous decision to deny considering placement of all street furniture in Venice.

Background: The VNC Board previously voted to deny the placement of street furniture in Venice.

(ii)The Board shall authorize the Neighborhood and Ocean Front Walk Committees to a) identify possible locations for automated toilets and street furniture and b) negotiate with the CD 11 office on a formula to share revenue for the Community Improvement Fund program. All negotiations will be approved by a vote of the VNC Board.

Background: The OFW and VNHC’s met recently with Arturo Pina from the Council office and were asked to search possible locations for recommendation to the VNC. There is no point in pursuing this approach unless the Board reverses its previous position. Arturo Pina informed us that the furniture will be placed with or without VNC input. Some of the possible street furniture pieces (bus shelters) will offer an opportunity for VNC information as well as shared advertising revenue. This can be an excellent opportunity to create a partnership with CD 11 to provide funding for one of our most visual and successful programs. The council office has agreed to work with us and wait for our input before installing any further items. We will also consider removing inappropriate items of furniture which have already been placed.

Possible Alternative APT sites (not necessarily street furniture)

Penmar Park,
City lot on Main & Rose;
Rose Avenue Parking lot- adjacent to non working public toilets
Westminster Senior Center/dog park- on Main street side near bus stop or adjacent to senior center at Westminster and Pacific, near bus stop.
City parking lot under construction at Palms and Electric ( at Venice Blvd);
Vera Davis Center on California at Electric;
Oakwood Rec. Center on California side
Venice Blvd parking lot at Ocean Avenue- to replace porta potty at farmer’s market
Venice Blvd parking lot; near pacific Avenue/attendant kiosk.
Venice Blvd on City right of way near LAFD (good idea as people there 24/7 to monitor).
Life guard area and and/or near RAP/LAPD office
MTA bus lot on Main Street side.
Pacific at Windward on City lot

Revenue Sharing Procedures to be developed:
1) How is money allocated?
2) What committee will handle at VNC? Task Force? Ad-hoc?

II Linda Lucks (310-745-3240/310-450-2554; Lindalucks@aol.com) This letter, received from Dennis Hathaway, formerly of LUPC, confirms that the board did not rule out all street furniture, allowing the modification to include negotiating for any funds generated in locations approved by the VNC board, if any.

Linda:

When I was on LUPC, I authored the motion below. It passed unanimously in May of last year, and I know that it also passed the board. I actually saw a copy of a letter on it that Mike sent to Rosendahl.

Dennis

MOTION ON STREET FURNITURE

Whereas the below pieces of street furniture have been installed in Venice, and further requests for approval of sites are pending, the Venice Neighborhood Council requests that the office of Council District 11 determine that street furniture sites are equitably distributed throughout the district prior to approving any additional sites in Venice. Furthermore, the VNC board requests that the office of Council District 11 not approve any street furniture sitings in the following locations.

1) Any area west of Pacific Ave.
2) On any street other than Lincoln Blvd., Venice Blvd., and Washington Blvd.
3) In any location where a motorist’s view of cross or oncoming traffic is impeded.
4) In any location where a pedestrian’s direct line of travel on a sidewalk is impeded.

Furthermore, the VNC board requests that any so-called “public amenity” kiosks have one side accessible at all times for community notices, bulletins, artwork, or any other community used deemed appropriate by a community oversight body to be determined.

III Linda Lucks (310-745-3240/310-450-2554; Lindalucks@aol.com) on behalf of Neighborhood Committee: The Neighborhood Commmitte recommends the adoption of a Venice Emergency Plan developed over a year as a living document by the Emergency Preparedness task force and adopted by the Neighborhood Committee.
See Exhibit B

B From LUPC

I Challis Macpherson (Chair-LUPC@VeniceNC.org) on behalf of LUPC: Regarding DIR 2008-4703 DI, Director’s (of Planning Department) Interpretation of Small Lot Subdivision Ordinance as it pertains to VCZSP; considering that LUPC unanimously disagrees with the Director’s Interpretation and wants the Director to consider VNC prior recommendations, LUPC recommends that the VNC Board of Officers recommend that this document be reconsidered in light of prior recommendations made by VNC. See Exhibit C

II Challis Macpherson (Chair-LUPC@VeniceNC.org) on behalf of LUPC: Regarding Townhouse Cocktails, 52 Windward, DIR 2008-2468 BSA. (BSA=Building & Safety Appeal). Challis Macpherson moves that the VNC Board of Officers accept LUPC Staff report for this project, and that the board recommends that there is sufficient evidence of a legal non-conforming use since 1930s with respect to the basement (at 52 Windward) and for that reason a (new and specific to the basement) Certificate of Occupancy and Conditional Use Permit (Beverage) is not required. (NOTE: Specific conditions to this enterprise based on LUPC basic template for alcohol CUP will be submitted February 12, 2009 after LUPC meeting February 11, 2009) See Exhibit D

III Challis Macpherson (Chair-LUPC@VeniceNC.org) on behalf of LUPC: Move that VNC Board of Officers accept LUPC staff report on 712 South Lincoln Blvd. ZA 2008-2911 CUE ZV, and recommendation to approval the project as conditioned. Made by: Jed, seconded by John Reed, unanimous approval. Applicant is requesting sale and service of beer and wine for on-site consumption in conjunction with the operation of a new full-service restaurant having 48 seats. Proposed hours of operation and alcohol service are from 8am to 12am seven days a week. Variance to allow a reduced parking count with off-site parking on an adjacent lot secured via Covenant. Site presently a vacant liquor store, proposed use as a restaurant. Applicant requesting relief from LAMC 12.21-A,4 (9) (g), and the LAMC section which authorizes relief is 17.27. This is about a variance from LAMC section 12.21-A, 4(9)(g) to allow reduced 8 parking spaces in lieu of the required 10 parking spaces to be provided off-site (next door at a vacant lot) by Covenant. See Exhibit E

IV Challis Macpherson (Chair-LUPC@VeniceNC.org) on behalf of LUPC: Regarding 2004 Glencoe Avenue, ZA 2008-3153 ZAA ZV, that the VNC Board of Officers accept the LUPC Staff Report on this project, and move to recommend in accordance with the LUPC motion to recommend approval of the project under the condition that it remain an accessory building (artist’s workshop). LUPC unanimous approval. See Exhibit F

V Challis Macpherson (Chair-LUPC@VeniceNC.org) on behalf of LUPC: Regarding proposals for community use of 520 Venice Way, LUPC will consider the 3 submitted proposals, and recommend one to the board via email February 12th, day after deliberation Feb 11th. See Exhibit G

C From Stakeholder

I Challis Macpherson (310-822-1729; challis.macpherson@verizon.net): Move to support Challis Macpherson, Venice stakeholder, in her appeal to the City of Los Angeles,in opposition to DIR 2008-4703 DI, a specific plan interpretation clarifying the relationship between Section 12.22 C. 27 of the LAMC, established by the Small Lot Subdivision Ordinance (No. 176,354), and the Venice Coastal Zone Specific Plan.

II Marc Saltzberg (310-305-9660; outreach@VeniceNC.org): The following should be on the agenda for the next ADCOM Meeting. It is possible that Challis may also be sending you something on this – the resolution was brought to LUPC and we’re working on revised language (the language below is preliminary – we’ll have that Final language no later than 2-11 – and I’ll try to have it prior to ADCOM). It is very possible that LUPC will join me in this resolution – but they have not yet passed it (should happen on the 11th). Regardless of whether LUPC adopts this resolution, I would like to place it before the board as an interested stakeholder.

Per the following Resolution, The Board of the Venice Neighborhood Council hereby adopts as its policy regarding development of County land in Marina Del Rey that:

“the Venice Neighborhood Council requests that the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors suspend issuance of development permits and entitlements for any and all land/projects located within Marina del Rey proper until a comprehensive Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and / or a revised Local Coastal Plan complying in full with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) is presented to the County Department of Regional Planning, covering all such proposed or anticipated developments and addressing their environmental impacts on adjacent communities within the City of Los Angeles.” See Exhibit H

III Marc Saltzberg (310-305-9660; outreach@VeniceNC.org): This motion is being brought by Marc Saltzberg, an interested Stakeholder. I have discussed it with Challis – she agrees that because Breezes Del Mar came looking for support form us and that they were then asked to appear befor LUPC and because they didn’t show up there, LUPC has nothing to add to the motion and it should just come from me:

The Board of the Venice Neighborhood Council hereby adopts the following motion opposing early prepayment of mortgages used for purchase of Breezes Del Mar Apartments.

A Resolution of the Venice Neighborhood Council Regarding HUD-Held Mortgages of Breezes Del Mar Apartments

Whereas the Venice Neighborhood Council (VNC) Board on August 19, 2008 heard an “urgent” request for support of prepayment and early termination of the HUD-held mortgages that were used for the purchase of Breezes Del Mar Apartments (formerly Holiday Venice Apartments). This “urgent” request was referred to a VNC Land Use and Planning Committee (LUPC) meeting scheduled for October 8, 2008, to be followed by Board action on October 21, 2008 and

Whereas representatives of Breezes Del Mar Apartments did not appear at the LUPC meeting nor at subsequent meetings of the VNC and

Whereas Breezes Del Mar Apartments (Holiday Venice Apartments) receives supplemental income from low-income tenants in the form of Section 8 vouchers (and is therefore a critical affordable housing resource in Venice) and early prepayment of its mortgages could jeopardize the continued existence of this critical resource and

Whereas Breezes Del Mar’s HUD-held mortgages fall under HUD’s 236 Program, which suggests that early termination of the mortgages is prohibited unless there is no longer a need for affordable housing in the area (a need amply demonstrated by the waiting list of applicants using Section-8 vouchers for apartments at Breezes Del Mar Apartments) and

Whereas Congresswoman Jane Harman and Senator Barbara Boxer sent a letter on December 8, 2008 to the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development urging the Department to deny the request for early prepayment of its mortgages (attached)

Therefore be it Resolved that the Venice Neighborhood Council Board join with Representative Harman and Senator Boxer in urging the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development to deny early prepayment of its mortgages to the Owners of Breezes Del Mar Apartments and

Be it Further Resolved that this resolution be transmitted to the Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Senator Barbara Boxer, Congresswoman Jane Harman, LA County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Los Angeles City Councilman Bill Rosendahl, and Monique Lawles (owners’ representative of Breezes Del Mar Apartments)

D From Board Member

I Linda Lucks (310-745-3240/310-450-2554; Lindalucks@aol.com): Recommends that the board direct the Rules and Elections Committe to consider a bylaws amendment requiring all new board members to take the State and City mandated ethics (Conflict of interest) training before being seated or within 30 days if already seated. The training is offered online at www.lacityneighborhoods.com before being seated.

A From LUPC

I Challis Macpherson (Chair-LUPC@VeniceNC.org) on behalf of LUPC: Challis Macpherson moves that VNC Board of Officers send a De Minimis Form Letter stating No Opinion, No Recommendation Without Prejudice to CD11 regarding five entitlement applications received from 1-4-09 through 1-17-09.

AdCom Exhibit A – Neighborhood Council – Case Tracking System

Pilot Overview V1.0, September 6, 2008 (Murez)

The Land Use and Planning Committee (LUPC) has matured over the past several years. It has evolved from one meeting every couple of months with only one or two projects on the agenda to now responding to a Memorandum of Understanding with the City to submit a written determination report on every permit issued within the VNC geographic region. The committee has become more educated about the planning process and is now working towards a 2010 target of revising the Venice Coastal Zone Specific Plan.
Along with these growing responsibilities, the workload of the committee has increased from one or two projects being calendared every few months to the present level of hearing three to five projects twice a month. On average, what does this mean to each of the eight volunteer members that make up this committee, a workload that includes preparing 27 staff reports per month.

The process to analyze and prepare a project for hearing is fairly simple; contact the applicant, convince them to submit their plans for review, research the variances sought and flush out any that were not realized, organize their information and post it to the LUPC website, engage the potentially impacted neighbors and prepare a synopsis to post for Brown Act notification. Now multiply this process for one project 27 fold and the amount of information gathered and disseminated through this eight member volunteer committee becomes massive. What started out as a simple endeavor has now grown into a complex task with time sensitive details that must be accurately managed.

Automation to the rescue… with this sort of workload, managing details calls for a computerized case tracking system. What is needed is a centralized system that all committee members can access when they have volunteer time to give, that can reduce or eliminate many of the mundane tasks, and that will help engage the general public in the process. The system needs to enforce the policy rules of the VNC Board and the committee, while ensuring Brown Act laws are adhered. And, finally, the system must be available to all Venice Stakeholders and the City at large.

A pilot proof-of-concept system is being developed to address many of these needs. The system is being designed as a collaboration tool that will be managed over the internet. System access will be regulated through User Accounts that are grouped into security levels, starting with the general public then moving up the access ladder to project applicant, followed by registered stakeholder, committee staff member, committee chair, system administrator and program developers. Each higher group will be granted more access to functionality and system capabilities.

The system will track information by assigning case numbers to each project. The project or case files will be stored in a database and accessed through their respective case numbers. The routines that extract and modify the stored information will vary based on the individual access rights. The system will offer read-only reports to the general public while allowing stakeholders the rights to post feedback about issues they might have with any given project. Applicants will be assigned temporary access to upload their information and respond to feedback. LUPC staff members will be able to monitor all aspects of the cases, including being able to publish their findings, track correspondence and write recommendations (tentative motions) for the VNC Board to approve. Search and mapping functionality along with tracking key indicators will enable statistical analysis of accumulative impacts to be graphically generated. The VNC Board members, besides inheriting all the rights of the lower groups, will be able to post their final motion decisions and generate reports required by the City.

In addition, the audio meeting minutes that are digitally recorded will be divided into segments that correspond to the each project and posted into the case file along with any other archives.

In a nutshell, the LUPC Case Tracking system will automate the flow of information through the Neighborhood Council in a consistent, easy to understand format, while relieving a lot of the tedious tasks volunteers must perform at present. (follow up with PowerPoint overview and system demonstration.)
