Yo Venice! has an email from Mark Ryavec, President of the Venice Stakeholders Association (the VSA) announcing that there's been a settlement between the Coastal Commission and the VSA over those Venice RVs. As the Times reported last year, VSA sued the California Coastal Commission after the Commission opted not to get involved in the creation of overnight districts--that would have created areas for the RVs to park, and notably, wouldn't allow them to park in certain areas- . According to Ryavec, it looks like the city also got involved in the suit. Via his email, posted on Yo Venice: "Once City Attorney Carmen “Nuch” Trutanich understood our plight with hundreds of RVs and campers on our doorsteps, he jumped in with both feet, joined our suit against the Commission, and committed his able staff to winning Venice the right to OPDs." Earlier this year, the Pacific Legal Foundation also joined the fight, supporting the VSA.
