Want to help fix the sidewalks in Venice? A truck is scheduled to be in Venice on 3/24/2016 to do small repairs to our sidewalks.  Your VNC Neighborhood Committee needs help to identify the repairs.   And we'd like your help!!
 
We'll be walking our neighborhoods over the next several weeks to identify mis-aligned sidewalk sections that can be repaired with a ramp from the lower section to the higher.
