VENICE BOARDWALK: If one straw poll is any indication, Venice residents and enthusiasts would rather stroll along a brick boardwalk than either an asphalt or concrete one.

About 100 activists turned out Saturday for a final meeting about the $10-million boardwalk and pier restoration project.

When asked to vote on their preference for the boardwalk repaving, 50 people said they preferred brick, 40 voted for asphalt and eight voted for concrete.

Still, there is no guarantee that costly brick will be the material used, officials said.

RRM Design Group is scheduled to make a recommendation on Nov. 15 to the Los Angeles Parks and Recreation Commission.
