Local leaders mull what to do about increase of homeless encampments along Venice Boardwalk


As homeless encampments expand along the Venice Boardwalk, some local leaders are calling for a similar sweep to the recent one at Echo Park Lake.

Wendy Burch and Kimberly Cheng report for the KTLA 5 News on May 18, 2021.

Editor’s note: A video has been removed from this post because it failed to include a label for speaker Mark Ryavec, who sits on the Venice Neighborhood Council. Because the label was missing, the reporter voiceover’s reference to L.A. Councilman Mike Bonin made it incorrectly appear that Bonin had been speaking. That error was repeated in later broadcasts that incorrectly labeled Ryavec’s comments as those of Bonin, unfortunately.
