WE ARE COMPRISED OF OXFORD TRIANGLE RESIDENTS & NEIGHBORS WHO OPPOSE THE DEVELOPMENT OF ANY DENSE MULTI-FAMILY HOUSING ON THE THATCHER MAINTENANCE YARD SITE.

OUR GOAL IS TO PROTECT THE SCALE AND CHARACTER OF THE SINGLE FAMILY NEIGHBORHOOD. 

THE OTA SUPPORTS PERMANENT SUPPORTIVE HOUSING WHEN ITS EQUALLY AND EQUITABLY DISTRIBUTED ACROSS THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES. 

Where is the Thatcher Yard?

The Thatcher Yard is a 2.11 acre lot located at 3233 S. Thatcher Ave. in the southern portion of the Oxford Triangle neighborhood (adjacent to Yvonne B. Burke Park off the bike path). Its original purpose was to house machinery which provided maintenance to the Venice area for street services and to aid in the event of weather related and other natural disasters. 

Where is the Oxford Triangle?

The Oxford Triangle Neighborhood, located in zip code 90292, is an area bound by Washington Blvd., Lincoln Blvd., and Admiralty Way. It is composed of approximately 360 single-family homes and is primarily a R-1 residential neighborhood with the Azzurra, Regatta, and Cove Condominiums located to the Northeast.

What is being proposed at the Thatcher Yard?

Proposals for approximately 150 units of high-density Affordable Housing and/or Permanent Supportive Housing have been solicited and promoted by CD-11 Councilman Mike Bonin. Thomas Safran and Associates have been chosen as the developer.  Mike Bonin has agreed to lease them the land for development at the rate of $1. Currently Councilman Bonin is also trying to pass a Permanent Supportive Housing ordinance which will allow the City to circumvent local neighborhood plans and participation as a way to fast-track large multi-family developments.  This will have a profound and long-lasting negative impact on many neighborhoods.

What you can do to help?

The good news is that we CAN fight back! Fighting a development like this can be expensive and can go on for years.  Litigation can cost in the hundreds of thousands of dollars to fight. However, if everyone affected donates, we can make a difference. Any donation of time, talent and/or money is appreciated. We have received donations of $100 to upwards of $2,500. All donations are closely tracked by the Treasurer of the OTA.  Any unused funds still available at the end of this legal battle will be returned proportionately to the Donors. All legal and neighborhood communication expenses will be itemized and available for review.
