Public Works Sets New Date for Venice Zip Line Appeal

The City of Los Angeles Board of Public Works announced a new date to hear appeals for the proposed Venice Beach zip line.

Andrea Alarcon, the Board’s president, announced via email that the new date will be Friday, August 10, at 9:30 a.m.

Plans proposed by Greenheart Conservation Co. call for the installation of a 720-foot zip-line ride along the world-famous Venice Beach boardwalk. The zip line will carry riders from a launch pad across the boardwalk from the Sidewalk Cafe and down to a landing pad that will be stationed to the north of the basketball courts at 19th Avenue.

Ride operators say the feature could attract  400 riders a day at $20 each.

Councilmember Bill Rosendahl supports the project on a three-month temporary basis to help generate revenue for maintenance of the boardwalk.

Earlier this summer, the Venice Neighborhood Council voted to support the project. The City’s Bureau of Engineering also recommended issuing a permit.

If the Board of Public Works denies the appeal, and allows the project to move forward, the matter will then go to the California Coastal Commission for final approval.

The Board of Public Works meets at City Hall, 200 N Spring Street, room 350.
