COMMUNITY IMPACT STATEMENT TO BE ATTACHED TO

COUNCIL FILE 09
-
2171



Challis Macpherson (
Chair
-
LUPC@VeniceNC.org
)
:

We, the Venice Neighborhood Council, object to subject
Council File 09
-
2171 which states: “I move that the order of business of regular meetings of the Council, as
listed in Council Rule 22, be
amended to move ‘Public Testimony on Non
-
Agenda Items’ toward the end of the
Council meetings just prior to ‘Adjourning Motions:’ with the understanding that the Council President shall
retain the discretion to change the order of business for any Council
meeting at his discretion and depending on
the needs of the day.”

Implementation of this rule will hinder the opportunities of neighborhood activists most. Neighborhood Councils
are City Chartered organizations and by this rule their members will be refus
ed the opportunities offered to other
Departmental and Agency representatives.

"Bin Your Butts" Flyer / "Green Screen" Film Fe
stival & Series


Nick Karno (323

nkarno@yahoo.com
)
& Kristopher Valentine
(
kristophervalentine@gmail.com
)

on

behalf of Environmental

Committee:

The En
vironmental Committee is
currently working on a campaign to reduce the littering of cigarette butt at First Fridays on Abbot Kinney. We are
developing a plan with businesses on Abbot Kinney, which includes public awareness, purchasing of bins, and
clean up
. There is a very good chance funding of the program will come from involved businesses. At this point
the Eco Committee requests the endorsement of the VNC so that the campaign can be promoted at the VNC
booth and the flyer can use the VNC logo. This litt
er reduction program is a pilot that if successful will be
implemented on Ocean Front Walk and other parts of Venice.


On Thursday September 10th, Nick Karno and Kristopher Valentine met with Joel Shapiro, owner of the Electric
Lodge, to discuss plans for
a “Green Screen” Environmental Film Festival in November as well as 10 part
monthly film series to begin in January 2010. The Eco Committee plans to requests support and funding for the
project at next month's meeting.


Motions for the two items will be pr
esented at Tuesday’s board meeting.

STAFF REPORT

Project Description:

A CUP to

permit the sale of alcohol type 21 full liquor license for off
-
site consumption AND 24 hour
operation. Currently there is no ABC license and their store hours are from 7am
-
10pm.


Applicant described the project on the LUPC Project Form as: CVS
is petiti
oning for a full type 21 license to allow the sale of
beer wine and spirits. Additionally, CVS would like to increase their store hours from 7am
-
10pm to 24 hours a day 365 days a year.



Section of Venice Coastal Zone Specific Plan and/or the Los Angele
s Municipal Code governing this particular site and
application: Oakwood area Venice
-

Venice Specific Plan


Summary of Arguments Against this Project/Issue:
Currently, Venice already has more full liquor licenses than the population
would usually allow.
There is a liquor license in the adjacent Whole Foods. Additionally, CVS Market is requesting an extension to 24
hour operation.


Summary of Arguments For this Project/Issue:
CVS was previously in the building now occupied by Whole Foods. While in that
building they had a liquor license without incident. Their liquor license was sold with the building to Whole Foods. CVS is

a large
company with many stores. Their corporate structure seems to lend itself to the idea that they would operate responsibly
with a full
liquor license and a 24 hour a day operation time.


Summary of Public Comment:

N/A


Summary of Findings by LUPC:
Venice currently has a disproportionate number of liquor licenses. This is primarily d
ue

to the fact
that Venice is a tourist des
tination for hundreds of thousands of people a year. The increased number of visitors apparently justifies the
increased liquor licenses. People come to Venice and it makes sense that they should be able to buy liquor if they so please
. CVS
operated wit
h a liquor license for years without incident before selling their previous space to Whole Foods. CVS has ample parking
and it located on Lincoln Blvd away from the residential streets behind the property.


Applicant called a meeting together of neighbo
rs/residents within approximately 1,000’ of 119 Lincoln Wednesday, August 5, 2009, at
Oakwood Community Center from 6:30pm to 9:00 pm. Applicant hired a firm specifically to do the radius mailing and flyer
distribution. Copy of flyer attached.
No one s
howed up at this meeting.

STAFF REPORT

Project Description:

A CUB to permit the upgrade of an existing off

site beer and wine license to an off
-
site FULL line alcoholic
beverages in
conjunction with an existing market having the hours of operation from Monday
-
Friday (7:30am
-
8pm) and Saturday and
Sunday (8am

-
out with sales of off
-
site beer an
d wine to off
-
site sales of full line alcohol


Applicant described the project on the LUPC Project Form as:

A 904 Sq. Ft. Market with a small take out restaurant that has long been established at this location. It is compatible in s
ize and use of
the de
velopments in this community. The applicant feels that upgrading the current beer and wine off
-
site sales to full line off
-
site sales
will create a convenience for this diverse community who seeks such services. The proposed request will be a desirable a
ddition to the
operation of a well established market. The proposed project will enhance the characteristics of the commercial developments

in the
community


Section of Venice Coastal Zone Specific Plan and/or the Los Angeles Municipal Code governing this

particular site and
application: Southeast Venice
-

Venice Specific Plan


Summary of Arguments Against this Project/Issue:
Currently, Venice already has more full liquor licenses than the population
would usually allow. Additionally, Kim’s Market is loca
ted in a residential neighborhood with homes all around the store.


Summary of Arguments For this Project/Issue:
The subject market has served beer and wine in this location for decades with no
outstanding issues or violations. The Market provides a co
nvenience for the surrounding community. Adding a full liquor license will
enhance this convenience and provide nearby residents a market within walking distance that provides spirits.


Summary of Public Comment:

N/A


Summary of Findings by LUPC:
LUPC fi
nds that Kim’s Market currently operates a market (as described above) with off
-
site beer
and wine sales. Currently, there is no disciplinary action found against Kim’s Market. The upgrade of their liquor license
will not
change the use of the market, an
d may provide a convenience to nearby residents.

Request that the VNC
board explore the following as alternatives to HVOC mo
tions II, IV and VI scheduled to be heard at
its September 15, 2009 meeting:


Motion II:
Motion to Create VNC Ad Hoc Affordable Housing Committee

Request that the VNC establish a Committee on Affordable Housing to promote the development of affordable
hous
ing in Los Angeles. The
VNC Ad Hoc Committee on Homelessness and Vehicular Occupation

Final Report

contains a number of ideas in the section on
Recommendations to Promote Affordable Housing
. The

new committee
may explore these ideas, among others.


Motion
IV:
Motion
for Limited Zoning Exemption for Permanent Supportive Housing

Request that the VNC recommend to the Councilmember of the District and the Mayor, for the purpose of
construction or adoptive reuse to create permanent supportive housing or transiti
onal housing for chronic homeless
individuals, that granting zoning exemptions be explored as a way to increase the number of units available on a site.
The properties created need to be vested in perpetuity

as
permanent supportive housing

by the project d
eveloper,
whether publicly or privately developed, and can be located in residential, commercial, or manufacturing zones per
the recommendations of the
VNC Ad Hoc Homelessness and Vehicular Occupation Committee

Final Report

in the
section on
Recommendation
s to Promote Affordable Housing
.


Motion VI:
Motion to Create Vehicle

[MarcS
joins in making

this

motion
]

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 not be codified by ordinance but rather
be determined by any contract the City of Los Angeles concludes with the non
-
pr
ofit 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 co
ntained in the
VNC
Ad Hoc Committee on Homelessness and Vehicular Occupation’s Final Report

in the section on the
Pilot Vehicle

At its regular meeting of ____________ 2009, the ____________Neighborhood Council passed the following motion:


MOTION:

____________ The Board of the __________ Neighborhood Council supports the stakeholders

of Valley Village in
regard to their two appeals of [DIR
-
2008
-
1178
-
SPP] regarding the SB1818 development located at 11933 Magnolia Boulevard
Valley Village: (1) Dale Neglia et al. ; (2) The membership of the Board of Neighborhood Council Valley Village.


We agree:

1)

That there appears to have been a bias within the Department to get this project approved no matter under what code of law
and no matter the lack of proper documentation.

2)

That the failure of the Director to require review by NCVV prior to a
pproval, and to consider the input of their Neighborhood
Council, demonstrates a disregard for the community, and is an inappropriate use of Planning Department discretionary authori
ty.

3)

That development of this site does not reflect the prevailing char
acter of the community, and will stand dramatically at odds
with adjoining properties. This is a failure of the Planning department to uphold and negotiate vigorously to minimize transg
ressions
of our General, Community and Specific Plans.

4)

That the Plan
ning Department did nothing to require adequate documentation relating to economic feasibility or to use any
standard by which to determine this feasibility. This impacts precisely on whether the proposed affordable units could be pro
vided
with far less de
nsity and with some other different concessions that would not trample the General, Community or Specific Plans,
and be acceptable to the Neighborhood Council.

5)

That the City lacks the process to adequately evaluate either the economic feasibility or the

environmental (
&

health
&

safety)
component. Therefore, the project cannot and should not be approved until such procedures, processes, and protocols are in pl
ace.

6)

That the excessive height and density of this project will, in the future, be improperly

cited as a precedent for variances and
exceptions, which by its very outsized presence enable opportunities for projects that are not presently entitled to density
bonus and
further deteriorating the character of the neighborhood.

7) That there have

been many procedural irregularities associated with this Developer’s application with the Planning Department
as an abbettor to forward the approval.

8) That the project brings traffic congestion to the substandard surrounding and collector streets
--

streets not even included in the
“cumulative impact” investigations. Streets which for the most part that have no sidewalks or infrastructure to protect the m
any
bicyclists, children and pedestrians. Traffic mitigations are inadequate and imperil single

family neighborhoods with DOT’s noted
reliance on additional cut thru traffic.

9) That there was a failure of the Planning Department to defend our General, Community and Specific Plans in extending
numerous incentives not even requested.

10) That
there was failure of the Planning Department to defend our General, Community and Specific Plans by accepting
conflicting, outdated and improper documents from the Developer at face value without any investigation as to their veracity
or
applicability to t
he current project.

11) That there was failure of the Planning Department in approving a project that invades neighbors rights to privacy, to t
he future
use and enjoyment of their open space property and common areas.

12) That there was failure of the P
lanning Department to require mandated downzoning as was called for by AB283 and thereby
defend our General, Community and Specific Plans.

13) That the cumulative impacts of this project on the street, the infrastructure, traffic, and other CEQA concerns

have not been
adequately addressed or mitigated. That a small 3
-
project inquiry cannot give an adequate picture to the extraordinary overbuilding in
the area.


As a Neighborhood Council, we share these grave concerns. They are matters that affect all of u
s. We consider them unacceptable
and support the appellants. Please take this position into consideration when making a decision on this matter.
