California Briefing

Venice

Limits on parking seem favored

October 29, 2009|Martha Groves

The Los Angeles city attorney's office filed legal papers Wednesday indicating that it agrees with the Venice Stakeholders Assn. in a battle against the California Coastal Commission over restricted-parking districts in Venice.

In July, the group sued the coastal agency and the city in an effort to reverse their decision that the city must have a coastal development permit to establish resident-only overnight parking in neighborhoods nearest the coast.

In a "cross-complaint" filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, the city attorney's office said the city "is not obligated to obtain or issue a local coastal development permit" for the adoption of an overnight parking district.

Residents have sought limits on overnight parking in large part to prevent RVs and campers from taking up curb space.
