LA City Council Considers Lodging for Displaced Liveaboards
On May 22, the Los Angeles City Council will consider whether or not to approve a permit change with Island Yacht Anchorage Inc. to house displaced liveaboards.
In doing so, the city council would exempt Island Yacht Anchorage Inc. under the California Environmental Quality Act. If the proposal would be approved, there would not be any financial impact to the Harbor Department Revenue Fund and no impact to the city’s general fund. The additional income would remain the same because the displacement of the closed marina will offset the increased tenancy and revenue.
