From the Santa Monica Dispatch — www.SantaMonicaDispatch.com:

A Santa Monica filmmaker has made a film of the Village Trailer Park that everyone who cares about Santa Monica should see.

The trailer park, on Colorado Avenue, has been here longer than most of us have been alive. It’s an integral part of our history. It’s one of the most beautiful and serene neighborhoods in Santa Monica with its stands of trees and gardens. It’s affordable housing at its most affordable. It’s home to some longtime residents. It’s irreplaceable. And it’s in jeopardy.

A developer is in the process of demolishing it to make way for another oversized, traffic-generating mixed use project that Santa Monica neither needs nor wants. City Hall has failed to take the requisite steps to preserve this unique treasure. The residents have filed an appeal, but, in the meantime, the developer is gradually dismantling the park and the lives of its residents.

It’s a tragedy in the making. But it doesn’t have to happen.

The film, which includes some residents talking about the park and their lives there, has been posted on YouTube. If you care about Santa Monica, you must see it. Now!
