HELP PROTECT THIS RENT-STABILIZED BUILDING FROM BEING CONVERTED INTO A HOTEL! 

The Los Angeles Department of City Planning needs to hear your voice in support of the residential zoning of the 58-unit Ellison Apartments in Venice. Property owner Lance Robbins is appealing the City's decision that The Ellison is and always has been zoned for residential use not commercial use. Over the past several years The Ellison at 15 Paloma Avenue has been stealthily converted into a non-permitted, unlicensed and unregulated short-term hotel. This de facto hotel has removed 48 affordable housing units (except for 10 longterm tenants hanging on) and replaced Venice locals with a never ending flood of strangers.  

Robbins is now asking the City to legalize this unlawful activity by granting his appeal to convert the Ellison into commercial use in the midst of an LA housing crisis and permanently remove all 58 apartments from the rental market. We cannot allow this to happen. 

Hearing
: West Los Angeles Municipal Building, 2nd floor hearing room, 1645 South Corinth Avenue, Los Angeles CA 90025
Date: September 20, 2018
Time: 9:30 am

Sign our petition to tell the L.A. Department of City Planning to KEEP THE ELLISON zoned as for RESIDENTIAL USE not an illegal hotel!
