Change at marina

March 01, 2007

Re "More low-cost marina rentals sought," Feb. 26

More low-cost housing in Marina del Rey is a worthy cause, but unfortunately it is not the principle issue of what is happening in the marina.

The marina was built with the aim of providing a leisure and recreation facility for L.A. County residents. The county is treating it as a cash-cow housing tract, hocking off every parcel of land piecemeal to developers without any consideration given to recreation at all. The county Board of Supervisors appears to be hellbent on destroying the recreational aspects of Marina del Rey the way the city destroyed Abbot Kinney's Venice in the 1920s, ripping out the canals and replacing them with a maze of slummy streets.
