City Council imposes lottery on Ocean Front Walk
Artists and performers look disgusted as the City Council votes unanimously to honor Cindy Miscikowski’s proposed ordinance that establishes a permit system and lottery for spaces on the west side of the Venice Boardwalk, Oct. 27, at Los Angeles City Hall.
In a 15-0 vote, the city council choose to ignore testimony from more than 40 artists and other Venetians (left) who trekked downtown. Also rejected was a Venice Neighborhood Council plea for mediation of the volatile issue. Opponents are contemplating their next move, which may be lawsuits and/or civil disobedience.
