City of Venice (transferred)

The grant was legislatively transferred to the City of Los Angeles in 1945.

The City of Venice was granted sovereign tide and submerged lands in trust in 1917 for the establishment, improvement and conduct of a harbor and the construction maintenance and operation thereon of wharves, docks, piers, slips, quays, and other utilities and appliances necessary or convenient for the promotion and accommodation of commerce and navigation. The grant was amended in 1945 to grant the land to the City of Los Angeles as the successor in interest of the grant to the City of Venice. The 1945 statute expanded the approved uses to include parks, playgrounds, streets, boulevards, bathing, bathhouses, and beaches.
