VNC TACKLES SHORT-TERM RENTALS, MELLO ACT COMPLIANCE, OPPOSES MANDATORY ONLINE COUNCIL VOTING

VENICE – At the Venice Neighborhood Council (VNC) Board meeting held Tuesday, March 17, Board members considered a wide range of issues, including short-term rentals, Mello Act compliance and mandatory online voting for future Neighborhood Council elections.

Chaired by Vice President Marc Saltzberg, the Board thanked members of the Outreach Committee and recognized the efforts of Chairperson Sylvia Aroth and team leader Rob Dew for the success of the first annual Green Venice Expo, which was held on February 28th at Mark Twain Middle School.

According to Aroth and Dew, some one thousand Venetians were in attendance, meeting with sustainability activists and vendors about keeping Venice a green community. A series of speakers, including activist/actor Ed Begley, Jr., addressed the passionate array of green activists and supporters - which also included Venice local, Tree Man!

“We were very happy with the content as well as the attendance, and we plan to make this an annual event,” noted Dew, to the applause of those in attendance.

A presentation by a subcommittee of the Land Use and Planning Committee (LUPC) discussed concerns about short-term rental housing and the effect it has on neighborhoods and affordable rentals here in Venice.

“The VNC has long understood the impact on the quality of life of short-term rentals and we will continue to support regulation of these short-term offerings,” said Vice President Saltzberg.

The Board also endorsed a request by Councilman Mike Bonin (11th CD) to improve compliance with the Mello Act, which protects affordable housing in this Coastal Zone community.

“Councilmember Bonin is to be congratulated for recognizing the lack of Mello compliance and its impact on working families who rent here in Venice," noted Saltzberg.

In other business, the VNC endorsed a “Budget White Paper” calling for both short- and long-term changes to the municipal budget process that engages all citizens.

The Board also went on record opposing mandatory online voting for future Neighborhood Council elections.

“Neighborhood Councils are grass-roots in function, and the election guidelines and process should be determined locally. Online voting discourages a wider range of participation, and we pride ourselves on maximizing our reach to local Venetians by positioning these contests as a community gathering and Town Hall of sorts,” noted Parliamentarian Ivan Spiegel.

The VNC has an information booth at the Farmer’s Market every Friday from 7 to 11am, just west of the Library on Venice Blvd., where you can ask questions or pick up the latest information about the Venice Community.

All are welcome.
