Venice Blvd. Improvements Project Concerns/Withhold Support

Passage deadline: January 2023

Passed by

  • Venice Neighborhood Council
  • West LA-Sawtelle Neighborhood Council (modified version)
  • Westside Neighborhood Council (modified version)

Motion

Refers to City Council file 22-0694

The ______ CC/NC, a member of the Westside Regional Alliance of Councils, is concerned that removing one vehicle lane in each direction on Venice Blvd. between Inglewood Blvd and National Blvd. will divert traffic onto other adjacent local, collector and arterial streets. Until such time as LADOT conducts modeling studies to predict the volume of vehicular traffic that will be diverted off Venice Blvd. when the road diet component of this project is installed, our Council will be withholding its support for Phase One of the Venice Blvd Mobility Improvements project.

The member Councils directly affected by this project are: Venice, Mar Vista, Palms and South Robertson. The member Councils which may be affected by redirected traffic include: Del Rey, WLA/Sawtelle and Westside.

Support for Position re Ordinance 187427 (Speed Limit Reductions)

Passage deadline: January 2023

Passed by

  • Pacific Palisades Community Council
  • Venice Neighborhood Council
  • West LA-Sawtelle Neighborhood Council (modified version)
  • Westside Neighborhood Council (modified version)
  • Westwood Neighborhood Council

Motion

Refers to City Council file 21-1223

______ NC/CC supports the following position in regards to the recent adoption of Ordinance 187427 regarding speed limit reductions:
i                _____ NC/CC supports the action taken by the LA City Council on March 7, 2022 in passing Council File 21-1223 regarding Speed Limit Reductions.
ii               _____ NC/CC supports the efforts to reduce the speed limit by 5 MPH on streets that were recently identified for 5 MPH speed limit increases. (See the attached Ordinance number 187427 with the complete list of streets effected.)
iii             Moving forward, it is the suggestion of _____ NC/CC that City Council open a Council File to consider that future speed limit reductions be discussed and planned as neighborhood or regional traffic improvements rather than individual street improvements. These improvements should be coupled with measures to minimize vehicle traffic being redirected onto adjacent neighborhood streets. For example, we would like to see LADOT incorporate traffic calming measures and active transportation elements. Traffic calming measures might include compact traffic circles/mini roundabouts, restricted turns, curb extensions/bulb-outs, speed humps and tables, and diagonal diverters, half closures, full closures, and median barriers to reduce cut-through traffic.
iv             In addition,  _____ NC/CC requests that the Council Offices engage the local Westside Councils in ongoing discussions about what additional streets should be considered for speed limit reductions as well as establish a method whereby Council and stakeholder feedback on this issue can be submitted directly to LADOT.
