Division 6 – Venice
In January 2016, the Metro Board adopted a motion calling for a community-based process to determine a new use for the former Metro bus maintenance facility and yard known as Division 6 through Metro’s Joint Development Program. This site is located in the heart of the Venice community, just a few blocks from the beach and Abbot Kinney Boulevard. The Site has been in operation as a transit facility for more than 60 years, thus the site is currently undergoing environmental assessment and remediation, a process which may take several years. Once the environmental process is finished, Metro will begin a comprehensive outreach process to ensure that the Venice community drives the vision for the revitalized site.
Though the total site development time frame will take several years, Metro staff will continue to keep the Venice community informed of the steps for this vision. Metro staff anticipate reaching out to key community stakeholders with a schedule update in Spring of 2017.
