Preserve Fisherman's Village in its style and location

  • by: Plinio Garcia
  • recipient: Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors

The invidiuals signing below do not want to tear down Fisherman's Village in Marina Del Rey.

Fisherman's Village is a true collection of buildings built in the New England American Style Architecture.  In 2015 this collection of structures will be 50 years old, which will qualify them as "historic," in Los Angeles County.  Unlike other architecture in the Marina del Rey area, these are real buildings with atticks and pitch rooves.  These are not facades.  More important, Fisherman's Village is an iconic image of Marina Del Rey.  The Village has been featured in countless movies, television shows, and commercials. There is NO OTHER image for Marina Del Rey, than Fisherman's Village. Destruction would remove any identity to Marina Del Rey.

More important, the individuals who have signed below do not want a parking lot or Boat Ramp or any other structures where Fisherman's Village is currently located.  The only types of changes we want are Similar-Structures that ADD to the current village.

Dear Supervisors,

Fisherman's Village is an icon that represents American Seaside Architecture.  The buildings are original, colorful and real.  The buildings are built in a human-sized portion that makes visitors and residents feel comfortable.  In 2015 Fisherman's Village will be 50 years old and will qualify as a historical collection of buildings.

Fisherman's Village is what tourists and residents the world over think of when they think of Marina Del Rey.  The buildings have been in countless movies and television shows, including recents shows with Halle Berry.  It is a hub of activity in the summertime and on all weekends. It is a magical location that balances boats, people and wildlife.  It should be preserved the way it is, and perhaps improved upon, but NOT torn down. 

Moving it to a different location would eliminate one of the world's best ocean and marina views that include unparallelled sunsets.  

We ask that you take all actions to preserve Fisherman's Village, turn it into a Historical site, prerserve and improve it, but not tear it down.
