[Editor’s Note: On Sunday, Aug. 9, some Culver City streets will be closed off for most of the daylight hours – angering certain business owners — when the worldwide bicycling event known as CicLAvia is routed through the community. One owner spoke up at last evening’s City Council meeting.]
I am Lynne Davidson, representing Tito’s Tacos Mexican restaurant, located for the past 56 years on Washington Place in Culver City.
I come here to express my utter outrage that the city and some non-profit group called CicLAvia will close Tito’s Tacos on Sunday, Aug. 9, to our regular customers — many of whom come from as far as Santa Barbara, Riverside and San Diego counties.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with our restaurant, Tito’s Tacos was selected by the nationally recognized media sources the Daily Meal and FoxNews.com for producing the Numero Uno Best Taco in all of Los Angeles County. TechTimes.com recently picked Tito’s Tacos as one of the “Twenty Places where you can get the Best Tacos in America.”
It is truly rewarding to receive this kind of recognition for producing mouth-watering food, prepared fresh daily for our beloved customers on a consistent basis.
I am here this evening to ask you to immediately cancel the CicLAvia event or, at a bare minimum, that the streets surrounding Tito’s Tacos are not closed to through traffic on Aug. 9,, which traditionally is one the biggest days of the year for us.
If this ill-conceived event happens, Tito’s Tacos plans to file a claim under the Government Code against the City of Culver City and CicLAvia to recoup all damages the event causes to Tito’s Tacos.
