Plans for a zip line at Venice Beach are flying right along. The Board of Public works has approved a permit for the attraction.

The 700-foot zip line would operate as a three-month pilot project. It still needs approval from the California Coastal Commission.

Some residents are against it, citing noise and traffic problems. Supporters say the attraction could bring in much-needed revenue.
