Administrative Committee Meeting Agenda Extra Space Storage, Presidents Row Room 658 South Venice Blvd, Venice, 90291 Monday, June 7, 2010 at 7:00 PM Note: (i) The Administrative Committee does not address or consider the merits of proposed agenda items. Its function is to determine whether a proposed agenda item will be placed on the next Board meeting agenda, postponed, referred to a specific committee for review and recommendation, treated as an announcement, or considered and resolved as a non-Board administrative matter. (ii) The Administrative Committee has the discretion to reorder consideration of matters on the agenda to accommodate stakeholders or for other reasons. (iii) Unless otherwise noted, the President abstains on all votes. 1. Call to Order and Roll Call 2. Approval of the Administrative Committee Agenda 3. Approval of any outstanding Administrative Committee minutes submitted by the Secretary May 10, 2010 Administrative Committee Meeting Minutes (see http://venicenc.org/files/100510VNCAdComMinutes.doc) 4. Announcements & Public Comment on items not on the Agenda [15 min, no more than 2 minutes per person – no Administrative Committee member announcements permitted] 5. Old Administrative Committee Business 6. New Administrative Committee Business A Administrative matters: (i) Stewart Oscars re: Post Arson Alert on Web (ii) Jim Murez re: Farmer’s Market Fridays – Can I suggest that each of the standing sub committees post their REGULAR hours at the table, example LUPC from 7-9 am; Neighborhoods from 9-11. Of course this would not preclude overlapping hours or others from helping. It also might relieve your weekly task of getting bodies by shifting the task to the committees. I think by setting regular hours by committee, people that really have questions will know when you find the right person in the "office". This would also give communications a chance to announce office hours in all mailings and at meetings. NO reply needed, just a thought.—Jim (iii) Review Status of Board Orientation – Agenda &Tasks & Manual See AdCom Exhibit A for 2007 Task List Ivan Spiegel (310-921-9556; ivan13147@verizon.net) (iv) Request for Setup Help for June 15 Board Meeting Brennan Lindner (brennan@genericevents.com) Good evening all. I will be out of of the country from June 11-25 and unfortunately will miss the June 13 retreat and June 15 meeting. I will need someone(s) to pick up/set up the PA equipment for the June board meeting. Don't make Mike continue to rally the troops after May meeting. ;) Brennan Lindner (brennan@genericevents.com) (v) Establish Ad Hoc VNC Mobility Action Committee: Challis Macpherson, board member, encourages the VNC President, Linda Lucks, to create a VNC Ad Hoc Mobility Action Committee to take public comment, review transportation within the entire VNC boundaries (both East and West of Lincoln Blvd) and recommend action by the VNC Board of Officers. (vi) Appoint official VNC representative to PlanCheckNC LA: Challis Macpherson, outgoing board member & stakeholder, requests that VNC President, Linda Lucks, appoint Challis Macpherson as official VNC representative to PlanCheckNC LA until end of 2010-2011 term or further notice. (vii) Record of Public Comment and future Agenda items: Linda Lucks: The Secretary of the VNC shall keep a written record of all public comments that are presented to the Board under non-agendized public comment. This record should include the name of the speaker and a very brief summary of their comment. All public comment summaries (along with the name of the speaker) should appear as part of the minutes for that meeting and be available for consideration for addition to the agenda (not requiring an agenda request form) at the next AdCom meeting for possible Board or Committee discussion and/or possible action. (viii) Alternative to above Item (vii) Joe Murphy: Amend the Speaker Card to read: … General Comment * … Affiliation … etc.) … * If you wish to have you the Board act regarding your concern, please submit an Agenda Request (www.venicenc.org/agenda) and it will be considered at the next Administrative Committee meeting. … X … (ix) Letter Regarding OPD Lawsuit Settlement Joe Murphy (310-305-1444; joedmurphyvnc@ca.rr.com): Request the following letter be sent as indicated: Judge of the Superior Court of the State of California, County of Los Angeles, Central District THE HONORABLE JAMES C. CHALFANT Attorneys for Respondent California Coastal Commission EDMUND G. BROWN JR., Attorney General of California CHRISTINA BULL ARNDT, Supervising Deputy Attorney General WYATT E. SLOAN-TRIBE, Deputy Attorney General, Attorney for Petitioner Venice Stakeholders Alliance JOHN A. HENNING, Attorney at Law Attorneys for Petitioner City of Los Angeles CARMEN A. TRUTANICH, City Attorney of Los Angeles VALERIE FLORES, Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office Re: Case No. BS122073: STIPULATION TO ENTRY OF REMAND ORDER; [PROPOSED] ORDER REMANDING CASE VENICE STAKEHOLDERS ASSOCIATION, an unincorporated association, and CITY OF LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, a governmental entity, PETITIONERS v. CALIFORNIA COASTAL COMMISSION, a governmental entity, RESPONDENT In your settlement negotiations and in any agreements you reach, please adhere to the following Venice Neighborhood Council resolution adopted at its October 20, 2009 Board Meeting: Dear Councilman Rosendahl: We appreciate your recent efforts to help us address the plight of the homeless and the frustrations with overnight live-in parking. It seems clear to us that most Venetians have sympathy for the homeless and the residents. At the same time, they are frustrated with the constant political in-fighting that undermines efforts to create a workable consensus. We believe that committing to the following two actions would create a workable consensus and mutually reinforcing solutions to both problems: 1. We will help you draft and implement the intent of your Council Motion 08-3125. In doing this, we suggest that you consider two recent VNC motions (see enclosure) insofar as they are relevant. When a draft ordinance is ready for public review, we will provide opportunities for broad Venice stakeholder review and comment. 2. The intent of Ordinance 177876 is to help address the overnight live-in parking concerns of residents. To clarify this intent, we ask that you file a Council Motion to replace the word ‘and’ with ‘or’ where it is currently causing enforcement confusion. We believe this letter speaks for the broad majority of Venetians in that it recognizes the mutually reinforcing impact of focusing efforts on both problems simultaneously. Your commitment to join with us in pursuing both of these goals would help us build a better Venice Community. Sincerely, VNC President Sincerely, Mike Newhouse, President Cc: Councilman Rosendahl & Commissioners of the California Coastal Commission Related Documents: Draft Settlement, VSAModifiedOPDTermsDraft4, VSAproposedAgreementDraft4, VSAProposedStipDraft4 (x) First agenda for new Board Ivan Spiegel (310-921-9556; ivan13147@verizon.net): In order to provide a smooth transition, the current Administrative Committee must agendize the first Board Meeting for the new Board with the following considerations (as mandated by the by-laws): The agenda should be as generic as possible, but must include the following items: Swearing in of new Board Members Minutes Financial statements Announcements Public Comments New Business Election of 4 members of Administrative Committee (by the Community Officers of the new Board) Open nominations for election of LUPC (election by the new Board – within 30 days of start of term) Open nominations for election of Neighborhood Committee (election by the new Board – within 30 days of start of term) Community Officer Assignments (each must serve on at least one Standing Committee and serve on and/or chair other committees) Agenda suggestions for next meeting Optional (not mandated, but necessary) Set meeting dates and times for new Board term Review Ad-hoc committees and appoint chairs (appointed by the President) Take applications for RulesAnd Elections, Education, Arts, and OFW Committee chairs (community officer nominated by Administrative Committee – approved by Board) Appoint Parliamentarian (s) May 31, 2010 email from Ivan: The basic outline for swearing in, etc: * • The current board sits at the table and establishes quorum. • All outstanding minutes are approved. No other business. • Not mandated but my guess is that Mike will want to say a few words thanking the current board for their service. Give out certificates. • The new board is called up and sworn in (Rosendahl is coming). They take their seats at the table. • Business as usual. * Secretary NB: I have assumed the swearing in occurs after Old Business in the below draft Board Agenda.

Jake Kaufman, Chair of VNC Land Use and Planning Committee, moves that the VNC Board of Officers accept the LUPC Staff Report, compiled by LUPC member Robert Aronson, and recommend action, in accordance with the LUPC's recommended Motion, to CD11, City of Los Angeles Planning Department, and Zoning Administration Hearing Officer Ms. Sue Chang, as contained in the LUPC Motion and Staff Report. The Staff Report and the recommended Motion are posted on the LUPC portion of the VNC website on May 28, 2010. VNC Board members need to access the staff report online as it is too voluminous for this agenda request form. The first page of the Staff Report contains a short Summary. F Japanese American Memorial Marker NW corner of Venice & Lincoln Phyllis Hayashibara (310-390-1576; phyllishayashibarar@earthlink.net): a. Consider a motion: to support the efforts of the Free Venice Beachhead, the Venice Arts Council, and New Media Academy students at Venice High School, with endorsements from the Venice-Culver Chapter of the Japanese American Citizens League, the Venice Hongwanji Buddhist Temple, and the Venice Japanese Community Center to erect a monument (design pending) at the northwest corner of Venice and Lincoln Boulevards, where on April 25, 1942, Japanese Americans in the Venice community lined up for bus transport... b. FUND A PROPOSAL: ...to the Manzanar War Relocation Authority camp for the duration of World War II. The purpose of the memorial marker would be two-fold: to remind passersby of the unjustified evacuation and internment of west coast Japanese Americans after Japan attacked the U. S. naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on December 7, 1941; and to remind passersby of the fragility of our constitutional rights during any time of national duress. (no funding proposal at this time) G Parking - Food Truck and related issues Robin Rudisill & Jed Pauker (310.827.0144; gojednet-parkingAbK@yahoo.com) on behalf of VNC Board: Per the May 18, 2010, VNC Board motion to direct Robin Rudisill and Jed Pauker to act on its behalf as follows: 1. Investigate benefits, detriments and complaints regarding Food Trucks on Abbot Kinney and report back to the Neighborhood Council with recommendations, 2. Investigate Food Truck-related and valet service abuses of parking and zoning laws on Abbot Kinney and make recommendations to the Neighborhood Council, 3. Work directly with CD-11 staff, LA Department of Transportation and Parking Enforcement, LA City Planning and the Venice Neighborhood Council’s Land Use and Planning Committee as the representative of the Venice Neighborhood Council regarding Abbot Kinney parking issues, 4. Report back to the Venice Neighborhood Council Board regarding items one and two above one month after the passage of this resolution. We recommend that the VNC Board take the following actions: 1. Establish an ad hoc committee or task force, to analyze and recommend action on each of the following impacts: a) Food trucks on local parking congestion, public safety and Abbot Kinney business association relations, b) Valet parking on Abbot Kinney - both legal and abusive, on local parking congestion, c) Existing ordinances & codes that regulate parking and mobile food vending as they affect the Abbot Kinney area, 2. Balance the group membership via input from the Neighborhoods Committee, LUPC, affected business and residential stakeholders, 3. Consider the submitted stakeholder survey template, as well as a possible Town Hall meeting, to gather timely input, 4. Direct the group to maintain pertinent contact with relevant City departments, 5. Establish a term of 90 days, at which point recommendations based on the above items 1-4 are to be submitted. H Motion to Rescind & Replace 9B from 10/05/18 Board Agenda - LUPC Motion re: 2724 Abbot Kinney Blvd Joe Murphy (310-305-1444; joedmurphyvnc@ca.rr.com): At the 10/05/18 Board Meeting, I abstained since I did not understand the rationale for voting for the LUPC recommendation. I later learned, essentially, that the owner was legally entitled to convert the units to condominiums and the decision we made actually freed him from his commitment to Venice – ie, he’s going to receive whatever he needs to go through with the conversion. We gained nothing and lost the opportunity to suggest that the conversion be conditioned on what he agreed to do – provide $5000 per year to the school, delay the conversion for 3 years, etc. Essentially, Venice lost a lot and gained nothing. I abstained, so I am not qualified to move to reconsider. If someone who voted for the motion wishes to move for reconsideration, that would be preferable. I wish to vote for the motion recommended by LUPC. I Letter Supporting Assembly Joint Resolution AJR 41 See Exhibit D Laura Silagi (310- 396-5702; lrsilagi@gmail.com) on behalf of VNC Ad Hoc Santa Monica Airport Committee: request a letter of support by the VNC Board for Assembly Joint Resolution AJR 41 to be sent to Assembly Member Ted Lieu and Senator Fran Pavley. J Emptying of Venice's sidewalk trash receptacles Stewart Oscars (310-305-8248; Stewart.Oscars@VeniceNC.org): I believe that Venice is the Number 2 tourist destination in California. This influx of tourists to Venice brings a large sales tax revenue to the State, County, and City. This influx of tourists results in a large amount of trash being left in Venice. So much so that the sidewalk trash receptacles in and around the beach area, and Abbot Kinney, overflow quite regularly. Venice needs increased sidewalk trash receptacle pick up. Therefore, I move that the Venice Neighborhood Council lobby the appropriate governmental agencies to increase the schedule of the emptying of Venice's sidewalk trash receptacles to match the trash being deposited in them. The money should be available from the sale tax receipts generated here in Venice. This lobbying could be done by a VNC Board member. K Community Representative in Beach Use Permitting Process Stewart Oscars (310-305-8248; Stewart.Oscars@VeniceNC.org): Venice Beach is used as a venue for many types of performances and activities. These activities have a direct effect on the residents of Venice. As such, the residents of the affected areas should have input into the permitting process used by the City and County when setting the parameters for events. I move that the Venice Neighborhood Council contact Council District 11, the Mayor, and our County Supervisor to become an active participant in this process. The VNC Board would choose a representative from either the Board or the Community at large to participate in these negotiations and keep the VNC and the Community abreast of proposed events and seek input from the Community to minimize impacts on Venice. L Motion to Begin Board Discussion of 2010 VNC Retreat Topics Joe Murphy (310-305-1444; joedmurphyvnc@ca.rr.com): I move that the Board brainstorm topics for the July 25, 2010 Board Retreat, for which I suggest a focus on identifying and learning from mistakes made during the past 2+ years in order to make the VNC a more respected impartial forum for the Venice Community which honors its Vision Goals (JDM suggestions below). Prior discussion by AdCom on Item 1 below included a suggestion that it could be more efficiently addressed on a case by case basis. 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. M Increase awareness of and increase stakeholder participation in the VNC Neighborhood Committee Stewart Oscars (310-305-8248; Stewart.Oscars@VeniceNC.org): To increase awareness of and increase stakeholder participation in the VNC Neighborhood Committee, I propose the following motion: All prospective candidates for membership in the Neighborhood Committee must submit signatures from 75 stakeholders residing in the area they wish to represent stating that these stakeholders have met the candidate and that the candidate has explained to them the function of the Neighborhood Committee. N Code Simplification Work Program Challis Macpherson/Jake Kaufman (Jake@Jake90291.com) on behalf of the LUPC: LUPC motion, May 26, 2010, to advise a delay in deliberation by City Planning Commission to enable Venice stakeholders the opportunity for investigation, public comment and possible action. This Code Simplification Work Program was presented to stakeholders at PlanCheckNC meeting May 8 by Tom Rothman and Alan Bell,City planners. Jake Kaufman, Chair-LUPC, moves that the proposed City Planning Commission, meeting June 10, 2010 for a study session on the Code Simplification Work Program with corresponding ordinances and the following schedule of July, August and September, be delayed 90 days to perform Charter mandated outreach and exchange of feedback with Venice community stakeholders. O 80 Windward Avenue/1607 Pacific [Postpone to 7/12/2010 AdCom] Challis Macpherson/Jake Kaufman (Jake@Jake90291.com) on behalf of the LUPC: Jake Kaufman, Chair LUPC moves that VNC Board of Officers accept LUPC Staff Report and recommendation for action on Case ZA 2010-913 CUB ZV SPE ZAA CDP MEL, at 80 Windward Avenue/1607 Pacific, applicant Arron Turnbull, Wine Tasting Shop, including on-site only wine sales (CUP-Beverage) as recommended by LUPC May 12, 2010. Recommended motion: Approval of the project as presented with following conditions; hours of operation noon to 2:00 am weekdays and Saturday, and 10:00 am to 2:00 am Sundays; if applicant loses parking lease and doesn't replace it simultaneously must notify City of Los Angeles and LUPC immediately; service floor of 362 square feet, observe Basic Management Practices as determined by County of Los Angeles; and alcohol conditions in accordance with VNC/LUPC policy. This policy document on VNC/LUPC web site (need link). P Standing Rule defining board response and action to De Minimus/Consent Calendar Challis Macpherson/Jake Kaufman (Chair-LUPC@VeniceNC.org) on behalf of LUPC: Request that Standing Rule defining board response and action to De Minimus/Consent Calendar items from LUPC be modified to exclude individual emails/letters to applicants, planning and CD11, and instead to list such De Minimis declarations in one list available as such on VNC/LUPC web site. Q Proposed amendment to Standing Rule governing Di Minimis letters Challis Macpherson (Chair-LUPC@VeniceNC.org) on behalf of LUPC: Challis Macpherson, Chair-LUPC & VNC board member proposes an amendment to Standing Rule governing Di Minimis letters: Neither City Planning Department nor CD11 have staff to process individual De Minimis letters; I encourage AdCom to change Standing Rule from need for individual letters to listing of De Minimis projects/applications submitted by LUPC and OKed by board. Listing then to be posted on VNC/LUPC web site. R REC Motion to replace Standing Rule 7 See Exhibit E Ira Koslow (310-392-0868; ira.koslow@venicenc.org) on behalf of REC S REC Motion to set up web to allow placing meeting recordings on it Ira Koslow (310-392-0868; ira.koslow@venicenc.org) on behalf of REC: REC recommends that the Communication Officer of the VNC research ways to place audio files of all Board and Committee meetings on the web page of the Board and web pages of all committees. 11. Announcements & Public Comment on items not on the Agenda [15 min, no more than 2 minutes per person – no board member announcements permitted] 12. Adjourn (approx 10:00PM) AdCom Exhibit A – JM’s List of Tasks 1. Officer’s already have their tasks assigned per Bylaws. Other tasks, besides Community Officers choosing committee(s) to chair and/or to belong to, that I think need to be clearly allocated are: • AdCom & Board & Town Hall Meetings: 1. Posting Agenda 2. PA system setup (Board & Town Hall Meetings) 3. Add responsibility to record meetings (AdCom & Board & Town Hall Meetings) & to webpost (if Brennan can arrange for that) 4. Rental of Westminster Auditorium for Board Meetings and other locations for Town Hall meetings (CC was doing this – I have forms and a system if CC can’t mentor his successor) 5. Snacks & beverages (Board & Town Hall only) 6. Timekeeper 7. Preparation of Speaker Cards and copies of Board Agendas for use by public (Board members wait to print copy of most recent JDM revised version) • Committee Meetings: chairs responsible for all of the above, which they can delegate • Response to Stakeholder Communications: email and phone msgs currently come to me which I send to board or selected individuals as I feel appropriate • Mail: I pick up, record, and distribute at Board & AdCom mtgs (need Jake’s preferred drop point for LUPC materials – almost all mail is for LUPC except for CIP project funding applications) • Email lists: I believe Marc gathers and keeps current stakeholder mailing info which he uses for Outreach purposes (newsletter, etc) 2. Possible improvements that I can help with if the board decides to implement them: • REC discussed possibility of setting up ‘consistent format’ committee webpages as currently exist for Board & AdCom. If board agrees, I would be willing to set a starter webpage up for all committees to use and modify as they deem appropriate – and I would also be willing to initially educate committee chairs/delegatees on how to use & maintain it. This is not a big task – no more than a week to set it up and educate – coordinating in advance with Brennan and calling on him as needed. I would design it to include links to webposted meeting recordings for public listening and/or downloading along with the currently existing links to each meeting agenda & minutes so that it won’t be necessary to go back and modify all the committee pages later. • Change Agenda Request Form to require a short summary descriptor along with the title & contact info with links to documents or references to Exhibits for actual motions, announcements, supporting documents and letters as appropriate. I believe this was Hugh’s suggestion some time ago and that Linda would like to see something like this as well. The agenda itself would be shorter and easier for public to read and understand; it doesn’t shorten the ‘agenda with exhibits’ (motions, announcements, letters, reports, etc); it just makes the agenda part shorter.

Exhibit D – Letter Supporting Assembly Joint Resolution AJR 41 Letter Dear Assembly Member Ted Lieu and Senator Fran Pavley, The Venice Community Council strongly supports your Assembly Joint Resolution AJR 41. The Venice Community is adversely affected by noise and air pollution caused by over 150 prop and 25 jet flights per day over Venice. A comprehensive study of the areas surrounding the airport is sorely needed. Your resolution, "which would memorialize the Federal Aviation Administration, the federal Environmental Protection Agency, the federal Department of Transportation, and the members of the California congressional elegation to work collaboratively to review noise levels and the safety of flight operations at Santa Monica Airport, to carefully examine the air pollution impact on the communities that surround the airport, and to enlist the help of expert scientists to study the effects of emissions from the airport and apply that science into remediation efforts, among other things," is the beginning of making an important change for all communities surrounding the airport. Thank you for your work on this important environmental resolution. Sincerely, Linda Lucks, President Venice Neighborhood Council Background The figures of 150 props and 25 jets per day comes from the Santa Monica airport which estimates over 190 props and 25 jets fly out of Santa Monica daily. At the present time, the flight path has changed for about 17 instrument props per day flying over Santa Monica. The rest continue to fly over Venice. The residents of Santa Monica are up in arms over this new flight path experiment that will end around June 8th. The purpose of this experiment by the FAA is to better coordinate the take-off by jets between LAX and Santa Monica Airport. The diverting of these props (instrument flight props) means that these slower planes are out of the way for the SM jets to take off when given the signal... The flight path for the LAX and the flight path are too close and therefore have to be coordinated by LAX. This causes jets at SM to idle for quite a while on the runway waiting for the signal to leave causing extreme pollution to those east of the airport in particular. The true solution would be for the jets to take off over SM toward the pier and thereby leaving enough distance between LAX and SM jets. (This was done before and in 1991 the residents of SM complained and the flight path was changed to go over Venice ---over Rose.) Also, the other props (visual instrument props)all fly over Venice, especially affecting those south of the airport. A large number of these are small props practicing. There are 6 flight schools out of SM airport. The flight path to the south is also for the convenience of Santa Monica residents. Mar Vista letter (possible alternative to consider – see next page) Ted Lieu, CA Assembly member – 53rd Assembly District California State Assembly State Capitol P.O. Box 942849 Sacramento, CA 94249-0053 email address: assemblymember.Lieu@assembly.ca.gov June xx, 2010 Resolution of the Mar Vista Community Council To SUPPORT California State Assembly Joint Resolution AJR 41 (Authored by California Assembly member Ted Lieu – 53rd District) (Coauthored by California Senator Fran Pavley – 23rd District) (Sponsored by Concerned Residents Against Airport Pollution) TOPIC: Relative to Santa Monica Airport Whereas: Santa Monica Airport is surrounded more closely by densely populated residential neighborhoods than other comparable airports in the country, and Whereas: Santa Monica Airport is the busiest single runway airport in the nation with total annual jet operations growing from approximately 1,000 in 1983 to over 18,000 in 2007, and Whereas: West Los Angeles, Mar Vista, Venice, and Santa Monica are heavily impacted by the emissions and noise from Santa Monica Airport jet operations, and Whereas: A recently published study of air quality downwind from Santa Monica Airport using a state-of-the-art California Air Resources Board mobile monitoring unit showed very high levels of particulates well into the Los Angeles community of North Westdale, and Whereas: A February, 2010 Health Impact Assessment report by a team of UCLA resident pediatricians analyzed the impacts of a lack of a buffer zone, noise, and air quality. One of their recommendations was to adopt the precautionary principal given the evidence of the potential harm from the byproducts of airport pollution on animal and human health. Be it resolved that 1) The Mar Vista Community Council strongly supports this resolution AJR 41, and 2) The Board of the Mar Vista Community Council shall send this official letter of support to California State Assemblyman Ted Lieu.
