We Are Pro-Development
We understand that nothing stays the same. We are interested in promoting any new projects with the appropriate scale and look that maintains our unique and cohesive sense of community. We want to encourage developers to create buildings that will fit in and enhance our already vibrant neighborhood.
To protect what we have, we will insist that new developments consider our unique ambiance first and foremost. Our priority is to maintain the character of the Street and our community. If we don’t participate in the civic debate concerning the development in our community, we will be defeated by powerful influences driving their own vision. A vision whose highest goal is commerce and profit, not community and culture. Our Venice uniqueness is threatened and could be gone forever. If we do not engage in this community building, we will only have ourselves to blame for the homogenization that could occur and that we see all around us in other Westside communities.
