A group of disgruntled residents in the South Mar Vista neighborhood say they are fed up with the lack of infrastructure support they are receiving from the City of Los Angeles and have conducted a poll to float the idea of being annexed to Culver City, according to a report in The Argonaut.
Part of an email written by the residents obtained by The Argonaut reads:
Some of the items that have been the topic of discussion is that south Mar Vistans put millions of tax dollars in the city of Los Angeles’ coffers and basically get nothing in return. The streets are full of potholes, you can’t drive down most alleyways without damaging your car; the streets are filthy and some are not even cleaned on a weekly basis… and we have a mayor working about one hour per day to run this city.
The Argonaut interviewed South Mar Vista residents both for and against the idea of seceding from the City of Los Angeles, as well as representatives from Councilman Bill Rosendahl’s office (whose 11th Los Angeles City District covers Mar Vista).
Culver City City Manager John Nachbar told The Argonaut he has not been formally approached by anyone about the idea.
