Eleven applicants for Community Improvement Project funds will present their proposals at a Venice Neighborhood Council Board of Officers meeting on July 17.
Among those vying for the CIP money are the Marina Peninsula Neighborhood Association (which wants to install doggie bag dispensers in the area), the Venice Vintage Motorcycle Club (which hopes to organize a bike rally) and Venice MoZaic (which will establish a poetry and spoken word fellowship for young people).
A full list of applicants can be seen at the Council web site.
The awards will be made at the conclusion of next Tuesday's meeting.
In other business, the Board will discuss and possibly vote on a resolution requesting the LAPD to consistently enforce city ordinances that prohibit individuals from obstructing sidewalks or to "sit, lie, or sleep" on any public right-of-way.
The Board will also hear presentations about a new grocery store planed for Lincoln and Washington, a novel high speed transportation proposal to connect the West Side with Downtown, and how the Lincoln Blvd Design Overlay impacts development on Lincoln.
Reports on the Venice BBQ (to be held August 4th in Oakwood Park), VNC Board elections (scheduled for October 28th), and the proposed Zip-line on Ocean Front Walk will also be heard.
The meeting will be held next Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the Westminster Elementary School Auditorium, 1010 Abbot Kinney Blvd.
