As you can see below, before the building was built, the California Coastal Commission designated 41 lower-level spaces in that building to be used on a lease-basis by residents of the North Venice area as shown on Page 2 of this document. Now, only 1 resident is known to be using those parking spaces while the lot basically sits empty every single night and residents are forced to park on the street. In the last year, more than a few residents were blatantly told to their faces that all the parking spaces were for Snapchat, and Snapchat employees have been seen parking there and then walking to other nearby buildings that Snapchat uses for offices. Phone calls are never returned when calling Peg Hale at Lincoln Parking at 310-393-4848 or they simply state that “parking is not available” and they supposedly put your name on a list. The California Coastal Commission and local law enforcement have done nothing to uphold this law that they designed over 30 years ago despite multiple phone calls and emails from the residents and the press in the past year. Now that Snapchat has departed, these parking spaces should be made available, yet the response is still the same when calling for a spot.
