MOTION:
SIDEWALKS TO BE CLEARED IF FOUND TO BE IN VIOLATION OF AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT
Submitted by Eva Greene a/o August 5, 2020
Whereas the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) became law in 1990, and
Whereas the ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas 
of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are 
open to the general public in cities, states, and throughout the entire country, and
Whereas the purpose of the Americans with Disabilities Act is to make sure that people with disabilities have 
the same rights and opportunities as everyone else, and
Whereas the Americans with Disabilities Act involves civil rights protections to individuals with disabilities similar to those provided to 
individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age, and religion, and
Whereas there must be a the three-foot (3’) clearance of all sidewalks in the city of Los Angeles to comply with 
the Americans with Disabilities Act, and
Whereas the ADA guarantees equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities in public accommodations, employment, transportation, state and local 
government services, and telecommunications, and
Whereas there may be disabled individuals living in tents in the encampments, and by the encampments not allowing a 3’ clearance of sidewalks, they 
too are being prohibited from equal access to the sidewalks and are also being discriminated upon, by the city allowing discriminatory practices against the disabled who through the ADA are guaranteed equal access to and equal opportunity in public Accommodations, and
Therefore, be it resolved, the Venice Neighborhood Council calls upon the City Attorney, the police department and the sanitation department and the U.S. Dept. of Justice Civil Rights Division, to begin immediate enforcement of ADA civil rights laws to protect the rights of the disabled who number over a 
million people in the city and county, requiring that all tent encampments and other items blocking passage for the disabled, and wheelchair bound, be moved back to ensure a minimum three foot clearance as required under the Americans with Disabilities Act for walkability and wheelchair use, and that if the clearance cannot be met and is not possible, that those tent encampments be removed immediately or relocated where the city deems appropriate. Upon passage, this Resolution shall be forwarded to City Attorney Mike N. Feuer, Mayor Eric Garcetti, Councilman Mike Bonin, President of the Board of Public Works Kevin James, Police Chief Michel R. Moore, and Department of Sanitation General Manager Enrique C. Zaldivar,

Letter from the Mayor and Information on the Coronavirus

Posted on 03/27/20

Venice Neighborhood Council

A Message from Mayor Eric Garcetti:

Dear Friend,
As your mayor, there is no greater priority than keeping you safe.

There is a lot of fear spreading about coronavirus — also known as COVID-19 — and I want to make sure you hear directly from me about what actions our City is taking to protect our families and residents, and what precautions you should take to stay healthy.

This morning, I joined our County leaders to provide the public with an updateon everything we are doing to prevent the spread of coronavirus and protect public health. I have signed a declaration of local emergency for the City of Los Angeles.

While there are only a few known COVID-19 cases in the region, the declaration helps us access state and federal funding to strengthen and support our efforts to prepare our region and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Simply put: we will do everything in our power, leave no stone unturned, and no resource untapped to preserve Angelenos’ safety and well-being.

They built a resort town on the north end of the property called Ocean Park, which was soon annexed to Santa Monica.
