ANOTHER ILLEGAL DEMOLITION IN VENICE

Thu, 01/14/2016 - 21:51
645 E Santa Clara Ave Venice CA 90291-VSO and CEX

From Laddie Williams:

Driving down Santa Clara Ave. I noticed this building that is being demolished and wondered if this came before LUPC?

I know this property was owned by the Brown Family for well over forty years, it should be protected by the Mello Act and why is it that these properties are being approved?  This property was sold in the Summer of 2015, and had an occupant who lived in the back of the property and it is a Coastal Exemption (CEX) and a Venice Sign Off (VSO). I know that he accepted money but he had resided there well over twenty years.

The only permit on the gate was Los Angeles Building and Safety (see pictures above).  With this property being in the coastal zone I thought it needed Coastal permission before work could occur.  It appears a second story will be added to a single family unit in the coastal area?  This needs to be reported to the Coastal Commission and the Director of Planning, it violates the Coastal Act and the Venice Specific Plan and the Venice Land Use Plan.

This is one example of properties that are being demolished in Venice but there are many more.
