Public Hearing for Ocean Front Walk Draft Ordinance

The next Board of Recreation and Parks Commissioners will hold a public hearing to reconsider a draft ordinance that regulates activity on Ocean Front Walk in Venice Beach.

The proposed ordinance is aimed at controlling vending, performers and noise levels in the Venice Boardwalk area, which has been the subject of “multiple legal challenges” and community concern as of late, according to item 42.15.

Councilmember Bill Rosendahl has worked closely with the City Attorney to draft an appropriate mandate for the situation.

“We want to clear up the confusion on the boardwalk and make it enjoyable for everyone: tourists, residents, entertainers and artists,” Rosendahl said in a letter to constituents earlier this month.

The draft ordinance prohibits the vending of items not directly related to free speech material or art including clothing, sunglasses and jewelry. In addition, it allocates 205 vending spaces, including five double-wide performance spaces and regulates noise above certain decibel levels.

The meeting is scheduled for 9:30am on Wednesday, October 5th and will be held at Expo Center (map), Community Hall Room, located at 3980 S. Bill Robertson Lane,Los Angeles, 90037.

The council office encourages concerned constituents to attend the hearing and voice their opinions.
