Council Discusses Proposals For 10858 Culver Blvd.
September 26, 2019
The City Council held a formal meeting Tuesday night at the senior center to review proposals to replace the building that formerly housed AMVETS, the community garden, the scout house and the paddle tennis courts. The city evicted AMVETS from their long-term home last year.
Four of the five council members were present with except for Vice Mayor Goran Eriksson who reportedly was out of town. The meeting was videotaped but was not available live as it would have been at the council chambers.
No public comments were allowed on the item on the agenda. However, speakers were allowed to comment on any items not on the agenda.
Presentations were made by various groups and their proposals ranged from modular buildings to provide affordable housing for artists to a permanent home for the Mayme Clayton Library which was recently evicted for the former Culver City Courthouse.
While many residents received late notification of the meeting the room was clearly stacked with supporters of the homeless and artists and were obviously people from out of town.
A system of voting for which project people liked was available on iPhone or on computers in the back of the room. Throughout most of the evening the WIFI was down and wasn’t useable. It began working after the meeting was over and most of the Culver City residents had left for home.
While the Wende Museum proposal was far and away the most popular there was no way to tell how many of those individuals voting where from Culver City.
