it's been a long battle between permanent residents and the new mobile permanent residents of Venice. With the streets filling up with RVs and some allegedly dumping water waste (in the literal sense, too), on lawns and into the streets, residents wanted to limit the amount of overnight and RV parking in the neighborhood. It's what the residents ultimately voted for and what California Coastal Commission staffed urged. Nonetheless, Commission members voted against restrictions, saying it was not their "job to be the balance between homeless and residents.” Therefore, RVs stay put for now. We posted a good "catching up" video on this subject a couple weeks ago.
