The City Council held a community meeting on September 24, 2019, in order to seek community input on five ideas for the site that had been proposed by City Council Members and community members at the July 8, 2019 City Council meeting. Over 170 people attended the meeting, which was held at the Culver City Senior Center.

  • Affordable housing for artists

  • Modular affordable housing

  • A multi-use facility created by combining parcels to the west

  • A community center operated by the Wende Museum

During the September 24 meeting, community members continued the discussion, submitting additional ideas for the City Council’s consideration, including: 

  • A skate park

  • A dog park

  • Affordable housing for seniors

  • Commercial neighborhood use

  • A homeless shelter

History

For over 40 years, the City of Culver City provided various Veterans organizations a City-owned building for a $1/year lease at 10858 Culver Boulevard. Over time, the building fell into disrepair and became hazardous. Given the expense associated with trying to improve the building to meet health and safety standards, and concerns that the building might have been beyond repair, AMVETS (the previous tenant) and the City agreed that it was in  the best interest for AMVETS to move its operations from the premises. AMVETS moved from the site on Monday, November 5, 2018. The City appreciates the work that AMVETS has done in the community and has welcomed the opportunity to support its efforts for the past many years.
