Legal Actions

These legal actions are made possible by generous donations.



1) On January 24, 2019, we appealed the CEQA exemption filed by the Los Angeles Department of Transporation (LADOT) on December 21, 2018 to avoid preparing an Enviromental Impact Report (EIR) as they move forward to make the Great Streets Venice Blvd. pilot project changes permanent. An exemption allows LADOT to make the pilot project permanent without having to conduct an EIR and give public notice or holding public hearings about the project.

We have taken two seperate actions with this appeal: a) we have sent the appeal to the Los Angeles City Council and b) we have filed a lawsuit in the Superior Court of California.

2) On June 20, 2018, we appealed the CEQA exemption filed by the City of Los Angeles for the Livable Boulevards Streetscape Plan which was part of the CTC/WLA TIMP Specific Plan Update. This update was approved by the LA City Council on June 19, 2018.

Livable Boulevards seeks to take what is on Venice Blvd. today and extend it to Lincoln Blvd. It also proposes changes to Centinela Ave. in Del Rey, Motor Ave. in Palms and Pico Blvd. from the Santa Monica border East to Overland Ave. in West LA. You can read more here.

We continue to seek members for our Livable Boulevards Lawsuit Steering Committee. Applicants should live, commute through or work in the communities that will be affected by these street changes: Mar Vista, Palms, Del Rey, Playa Vista, Venice, WLA Sawtelle and the Westside. Contact us if you are interested.
