Venice gentrification update: Blog Yo! Venice has the latest news from Venice Unchained, a group which would like to bar all businesses from entering Abbott Kinney (save Pinkberry--too late for that): "Potential chain stores are becoming aware that this neighborhood doesn’t want them," notes the group in their latest [ED: possibly dated?] email. Also, "Bill Rosendahl’s office is supporting us by focusing the Planning Department’s attention on this issue. The City Planning Dept. is researching our proposed ordinance and will communicate their findings in September at a public meeting." Also: Yo! Venice checks out the newly restored, Goya-esque “The People of Venice vs. The Developers" mural.
