*PLAYA – NEWS: RESIDENT SCREAM AMEN! – LA Rejects Homeless Housing At Westside Beaches

Several Westside beaches and proposed locations will not be used as homeless housing sites after a study from the City Administrative Officer confirmed the location is not feasible. In a four-page report released Monday night, CAO Matt Szabo cited a lack of sewer infrastructure, lack of adequate power capacity, and the absence of fire hydrants as reasons Will Rogers State Beach in Pacific Palisades should not be used. The report came after Councilmember Mike Bonin’s proposal to study whether or not Will Rogers State Beach, along with other Westside locations, could be successfully used as an emergency housing site for homeless residents. In March, Bonin proposed a series of ideas for potential homeless shelters as a rising number of encampments grew in the pandemic. Those suggested locations were in Pacific Palisades, Mar Vista, Marina Del Rey, Playa del Rey, Venice, Del Rey, Westchester and West LA.


Dangerous Drugs killed my brother. I came here to LA to get sober in 2019. Thanks to AA and the grace of God, I now have 18 months sober. My younger brother Daniel suffered from drug addiction as well, and I wanted so much to share the gift of sobriety with him. I helped him to get insurance and into the sober living program that I went through. He kept leaving the sober living and on Thurs. 8/12 he was found dead from an apparent drug overdose at 204 Lincoln Blvd. If you know ANYONE suffering from addiction, please warn them that these dealers are putting DEADLY fentanyl in every drug out there! My brother did not want to die. He was around people who left him there and did not even call the police in time. I want his death to be a lesson that these drugs are making people drop like flies! I now dedicate my continued sobriety to my brother. 

*PLAYA – NEWS: ENOUGH – Homeless Housing At The Marina? Marina Del Rey Businesses React:

Marina business owners are pushing back against the recommendation from the City Administrative Officer that a site in Marina del Rey could be among potential options for future homeless housing, city officials announced last week. Several Westside beaches and proposed locations will not be used as homeless housing sites after a study released last week from the City Administrative Officer confirmed the locations are not feasible. Sites in Culver City and in Marina del Rey were recommended. Marina del Rey Convention and Visitors Bureau’s CEO Janet Zaldua responded to the report recommendations.  “We are deeply concerned as a business community about the feasibility report recommending further evaluation on Parking Lot #2 and the Marina del Rey Public Boat Launch ramp,” Zaldua wrote. Zaldua expressed concerns about tourism and business in the area.

1. Why did you choose to conduct your business affairs in the Silicon Beach area? How did you get there? 
-As two NY transplants in LA, we knew we had the passion, experience, and nerve to create something meaningful that wasn’t already out there. We were both drawn to the exciting vibe created by Silicon Beach where it’s become one of the largest technology hubs in the world. Moxie Search places finance leaders at high growth, forward thinking companies. Silicon Beach was the ideal spot for clients and candidates to thrive. We like to say that we find unexpected, “perfect fit” talent that no one else does. 

2. Would you have to say has been the forefront of your success in your career? How did you develop your process in your work?
– We’ve seen search from every angle – as candidates, as hiring managers, as-house recruiters and as an agency – so we get it. Uncovering what fuels and inspires people on both sides of a relationship is key to co-creating teams & cultures. Our process evolved from our 35+ combined years of experience across top-tier companies and boutique search firms,

3. Do you see yourself going beyond the Silicon Beach area? Where are you from?
-Our plan is to expand Moxie Search Group across major metro markets starting with NYC & SF.
We’re New Yorkers who relocated to Los Angeles, so we keep it real and unfiltered, but California has softened our edges. You can always count on us to give it to you straight. 

4.  In what ways have you seen the area change since you’ve been here?  
-Stacy has been here for 10+ years and Ashley for 4 years. Both of us have witnessed the exponential growth as well as the challenges of 2020. We are proud to be part of such a resilient community and feel like the future is really bright. Moxie Search is fired up and ready to support the new wave of talent.
