SAN VICENTE COURTYARD WALKING TOUR SUNDAY

Sunday, August 9 from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

The Santa Monica Conservancy, in collaboration with the Historic San Vicente Coalition, will host free, guided walking tours of historic courtyard housing on San Vic-
ente Boulevard, stretching from Ocean Avenue to Seventh Street on Sunday, August 9 at 11 am, 11:30 am and noon. Tours last about 1.5-2 hours.

This corridor of courtyard housing was recently nominat-
ed for designation as a historic district by the city’s Landmark Commission with support from a number of local organizations and courtyard residents who are working
to retain the architecture and character of this unique neighborhood.

If designated, this courtyard district would become the third in Santa Monica, and very significant.

Courtyard housing is unique to Southern California.
This corridor contains the most significant and cohe-
sive concentration of courtyard buildings in Santa
Monica. Built between 1937 and 1953, it was a distinc-
tive neighborhood of architecturally noteworthy build-
ings,

The buildings are two-and-three stories, configured
around a landscaped open space, and designed in vari-
ous architectural styles such as Streamline Moderne, American Colonial Revival, and Mid-Century Modern.
This tour will provide an opportunity to learn more
about Santa Monica’s courtyards and the distinctive character of the San Vicente corridor.

The tours will begin at the northeast corner of San
Vicente Boulevard and 4th Street. Advance reservat-
ions are required and can be made here.

BASS AND LIEU SEEK RESPONSE FROM FAA

Dear Federal Aviation Administration Administrator Michael P. Huerta,

We are writing regarding a portion of land owned by the
City of Santa Monica (the City) at Santa Monica Airport
that should have already reverted back to the control of
the City. On June 29, 1994, the City accepted a grant for Project Number 3-060239-06, conferred by Contract No. DTFA08-94-C-20857. This is the last grant the City accep-
ted from the FAA. The grant specifically stated that “the terms, conditions, and assurances of the grant agreement shall remain in full force and effect throughout the useful lie of the facilities developed…, but in any event not to
exceed twenty years from the date of the acceptance of the grant offer of Federal funds for the project.” Twenty years from the date the City accepted the grant on June 29, 1994 would mean that the grant obligations expired on June 29, 2014. The conditions of the grant agreement-including the twenty-year expiration date-anticipated that amendments
and adjustments to the agreement could happen at a later date. Nowhere in the agreement was it stated that if any changes or amendments were added, those changes would activate a new grant obligation period from the date of those actions. In fact, the exact opposite has happened.
The last time the grant agreement was amended was on August 27, 2003 for an adjustment of $240,600. That amendment specifically stated that “[all] other terms and conditions of the Grant Agreement remain in full force and effect.” The claim by the National Business Aircraft Association that this adjustment somehow triggered a new time period has no legal basis because the adjustment was contemplated in the original grant and the wording of the amendment specifically stated the terms of the original grant applied.

The decision in this matter now lies with the FAA, and it is months overdue. We cannot imagine a scenario where the FAA would be legally justified to rule against the City in this grant matter, and we hope you will issue a prompt decision.

Respectfully, we request an update on the FAA’s timeline for this matter and urge you to announce a decision in favor of the City as soon as possible. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Sincerely,
Representatives Ted W. Lieu and Karen Bass
