D Motion to Rescind & Replace 8A
Joe Murphy (310-305-1444; joedmurphy@ca.rr.com): Request Board rescind motion 8A as adopted at the October 20, 2009 board meeting and replace it with the following:

Dear Councilman Rosendahl:

We appreciate your commitment to help us address the plight of the homeless and the frustrations of Venice residents with overnight live-in parking in their neighborhoods. To further these goals, we ask that you amend your Council Motion 08-3125 to read as follows:

[removes section that does not read well in web – see attached agenda below for full information]

I THEREFORE MOVE that the City Council request that the City Attorney, in collaboration with the Chief Legislative Analyst: (i) draft an ordinance, modeled after the Santa Barbara and Eugene initiatives, to allow councilmembers to designate discrete and distinct off-street areas of their council districts where people would be allowed to park and sleep overnight; and (ii) explore funding opportunities that would allow such specially designated off-street areas to be matched with staffing, security, and social services, modeled on the Santa Barbara and Eugene initiatives.

We suggest that you consider two recent VNC motions (see enclosure) in the design and implementation of this motion.

It is clear that most Venetians have sympathy for the homeless and for the frustrations of residents caused by the presence of live-in vehicles parking in their neighborhoods. We believe that your further commitment to the following two recommendations would create a much broader and much more workable Venice Community consensus:

1. It has been suggested that LA City Ordinance 117876, limiting parking of oversize vehicles on certain streets, be used in place of overnight parking districts to control the parking of live-in vehicles on the streets of Venice. While we support the use of LA City Ordinance 117876 as a solution, the ordinance, as currently worded, has some deficiencies that can be easily rectified, including the following:

The sentence that currently reads:

No person shall stop, stand or park, when authorized signs are in place giving notice of the restriction, any oversize vehicle, defined as a motor vehicle in excess of 22 feet in length and over 84 inches in height, between 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m.

should be modified to read:

No person shall stop, stand or park, when authorized signs are in place giving notice of the restriction, any oversize vehicle, defined as a motor vehicle in excess of 22 feet in length or over 84 inches in height, between 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m.

2. That, with the help of a VNC Ad Hoc Site Selection Committee or its equivalent, you designate, as soon as possible but not later than two months from the date of this letter, specific off-street sites as temporary locations where dwellers in vehicles can park until such time, not to exceed two years from the date of this letter, as Council Motion 08-3125 results in an appropriate City Ordinance that is fully implemented in Venice, at which time said temporary locations will be phased out. This would address the legitimate fears of homeless individuals who would otherwise experience severe displacement traumas.

We believe this letter echoes the legitimate concerns and desires of a broad majority of the Venice Community – in part since it recognizes the mutually reinforcing impact of focusing efforts on these problems simultaneously within a specific timeframe.

Your commitment to join us in pursuing these goals simultaneously – without linking one to prior implementation of the other except as provided in recommendation 2 above – would help us build a more collaborative Venice Community.

We are open to consideration of suggestions on how to better achieve the above goals we share.

Sincerely,

VNC President

Homelessness – Report & Recommendation to Support St. Joseph’s Center’s Service Registry

The VNC Ad Hoc Homelessness & Vehicular Occupation Committee presents a report & recommendations regarding St. Joseph’s Center’s proposal to create a service registry of the homeless population of Venice. The proposed service registry would be modeled on the successful service registries used in Downtown Los Angeles & also in Santa Monica that have assisted homeless service providers in identifying the most vulnerable of the homeless population & successfully providing them with housing & services. Further, the Committee will ask for the VNC Board to take certain actions, including forwarding letters of support to government officials & agencies, to support the proposal, and to sponsor and publicize the program.

[Adopted Unanimously 3/17/09]

Motion to Create Pilot Vehicle-to-Housing Transition Program

Request that the VNC recommend that the City of Los Angeles establish a program, funded by the City, County and possibly private charitable sources, and operated by a non-profit social service provider, to provide sites and services to assist vehicle dwellers, on a voluntary basis, find affordable housing.

The VNC suggests that most successful programs are flexible in their approaches to homeless individuals and that the initial program be a “Pilot” program. This suggests that the program specifics be determined by any contract the City of Los Angeles concludes with the non-profit social service provider selected to operate the program. The contract should be sensitive and protective of both residents’ and homeless individuals’ needs. It is further suggested that the City of Los Angeles and its contractor explore the ideas contained in the VNC Ad Hoc Committee on Homelessness and Vehicular Occupation’s Final Report in the section on the Pilot Vehicle-to-Housing Transition Program (http://venicenc.org/files/090508Homelessness_Committee_Final_Report-1.do…).

[Adopted Unanimously 9/15/09]

E Motion Regarding Parking Protection
Stewart Oscars (stewart.oscars@gmail.com)

Recognizing that RV/Vehicle Dweller Programs already in operation in Eugene, OR and Santa Barbara, CA, are being used as templates/references for discussions and decisions in both Venice and the City Council of Los Angeles, and

Recognizing that a balanced approach is needed to guarantee residents’ rights to safety and comfort along with providing services to vehicle dwellers to help them improve their lives, and

Recognizing that both Santa Barbara and Eugene provide services to help willing vehicle dwellers to work on improving their lives and regaining permanent housing and that both Santa Barbara and Eugene have city ordinances regulating vehicle parking on city streets instituted for the public safety [examples are: Eugene Ord. 4.815 and Santa Barbara (SB) Ord. 15.16.080 ban living in vehicles on their city’s streets; SB Ord. 14.44.200 allows no RV parking west of Hwy 101 from 12 midnight-6am and no RV parking in the city from 2am-6am; SB Ord. 10.44.205 sets 500 foot parking distances for RVs from schools, parks, care facilities, and other places], and

Recognizing that the coupling of these ideas together in Eugene and Santa Barbara has led to systems that both vehicle dwellers and residents are using to establish common ground,

I move that the Venice Neighborhood Council send a letter to Los Angeles City Councilmembers, the Mayor, and other appropriate City Agencies stating that any ordinances and plans of operations that may be established by the LA City Council to help provide services that will aid vehicle dwellers to improve their living situations incorporate the same parking protections afforded residents of Eugene and Santa Barbara.

F Motion to Begin Board Discussion of 2009 VNC Retreat Topics [5 min discussion] [Postponed to Nov 9 AdCom]
Joe Murphy (310-305-1444; secretary@venicenc.org): I move that the Board begin discussion of topics for a 2009 Board Retreat, for which I submit the following suggestions:

1. Consider creating a Hot Button Issue procedure that enhances the probability of generating a viable political consensus, perhaps one such as the following:

• Board determines whether an issue is a Hot Button Issue and approves a scope of work, prepared by AdCom, broad enough to deal with all aspects of the issue.
• A 13-member Ad Hoc Hot Button Issue Committee is formed as follows:

o AdCom considers & recommends Board approval of Co-Chairs from 2 key interest groups.
o Co-Chairs: (i) select 3 members each; and (ii) 3 members jointly (failure ? no committee).
o President appoints 2 community members.
o Committee is directed to involve key gov’t & non-gov’t agencies and to explore all options in preparing a draft report & recommendations.
o Draft report & recommendations is considered at Special Board Meeting.
o Committee considers Board & public comments, revises draft report & recommendations as it deems appropriate, prepares & submits final report & recommendations to Board.

• This procedure to apply to all Hot Button Issues and to supersede all other VNC efforts that do not conform with the above.

2. How to improve Standing & Ad Hoc Committees, perhaps including the following topics to encourage:

• Broadening interests in selecting members.
• Adherence to SR13.
• Preparation and posting of adequate agendas and minutes.
• Referral of Hot Button Issues to AdCom/Board (avoid duplication if suggestion 1 adopted).

3. Clarification of VNC (ie, board adopted) policies, perhaps including the following topics:

• How to determine what constitutes and what does not constitute an official VNC policy.
• How to record and publicize VNC policies. .

9. New Business

A Request VNC Recommend BONC Certification of Neighborhood Council in Westwood
Margaret C. Jacob (310-794-4432; mjacob@history.ucla.edu): A group of people are forming a new Neighborhood Council in Westwood and would like to be on the agenda to ask the VNC Board to support for their. Part of the process for Certification is that applicants need to show support from other Councils in their area. This group’s bylaws have been approved by DONE and they should be appearing before BONC in December.

B Motion to Begin Board Discussion of Recruiting New Board Members for Upcoming Election
Ivan Spiegel (310-821-9556; ivan13147@verizon.net): I would like the Board to have a 10-15 minute discussion on how they are going to attempt to recruit new Board members for the upcoming election that reflect the diversity of Venice neighborhoods. Diversification is mandated by the City’s Neighborhood Council Plan and should be the responsibility of the entire Board.

C Motion to Amend Standing Rule 10 – Meetings: Code of Ethics
Ira Koslow (310-392-0868; ira.koslow@venicenc.org) on behalf of Rules & Elections Committee: Request approval of amendment of SR10 as follows:

Any Board member who has not received a certificate of completion for the mandated ethics training within a [Delete] year [Add] 55 days of taking office will be prohibited from voting on any land use issues or financial expenditures of any city funds effective August 18, 2009.

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.)
