Update on…Venice Place


FROM THE VENICE PLACE TEAM:

We have just learned that the City Council Planning and Land Use Management Committee (PLUM) hearing for The Venice Place Project has been rescheduled. The PLUM Committee will now consider the project on Thursday, Sept. 10 at 2 pm.

We know we’re asking a great deal but we need your help next week to tell the PLUM Committee how frustrated you are with the Councilmember’s recent action and that the City should once again approve the project!

If you are able to attend the special PLUM hearing (via Zoom) on Sept. 10, please RSVP HERE or just text YES to 424-401-5809. You will automatically be signed up for the new hearing date and registered as a supporter of the project. We will communicate hearing details via text message next week.

And thank you to everyone who sent support letters to the PLUM Committee. If you haven’t already done so, please CLICK HERE to send a letter.

We know this process has been confusing and difficult for many of you, and want you to know how much we value your efforts. Your support has been and continues to be so important in letting decision-makers know that this project belongs in our community.

We are so thankful for all you’ve done.

Sincerely,
Dan and The Venice Place Project team

There is a variety of factors which make the student housing occupancy outlook uncertain, such as: (1) when will students return to campus/will they return for online-only learning; (2) if or when will they sign new leases; and (3) will they require future “outs” or reimbursement provisions for similar future events.

Steady Near-Term; Future is Uncertain.
