Virtual Forum tonight 4/15/2014 – Zoning Code Evaluation Report

April 15th, 2014- by YoVenice - · No Comments

Los Angeles is working on a massive overhaul of its zoning laws, the first of its kind in 67 years, and they are calling the project re:code. As part of the initial steps of the project, the Department of City Planning has studied the existing zoning code and released a report outlining their criticisms and a general framework for new zoning code. Tonight they are soliciting public opinion and input through an online virtual forum. More information about the forum is available on their site.

LA Weekly on Bret’s Death

April 15th, 2014- by YoVenice - · No Comments

Maisie538 writes in the forum:

I wrote to the LA Times and LA Weekly to ask about an obituary for Bret, who meant so much to Venice. The LA Weekly wins the responsiveness prize by a landslide. A writer named Dennis Romero reached out to me yesterday and I spoke to him about what YoVenice and Bret had meant to me as a Venice resident and business owner, even though I didn’t know Bret personally. Today the incredibly industrious Mr. Romero published this worthy tribute.
