Camarillo Council Candidate Wants Total Building Freeze

Daniel Goldberg, if elected, proposed 5-year freeze on new housing


Candidate for Camarillo City Council says the City needs to reevaluate growth strategy.

Camarillo, CA – October 18, 2018 – Daniel Goldberg, candidate for Camarillo City Council, states that if elected he would propose a freeze on all new housing developments in the city of Camarillo.

Goldberg said “over the last three months campaigning, almost every voter’s first question is what do I think about the new housing. Simply stated, it is too much too fast. We need to pump the brakes and evaluate our growth plan.”

Particular concern is the new Springville Development. Homeowners in the surrounding neighborhood are particularly concerned with the density, stating is two to three times denser than Village at the Park. There are many concerns about increased traffic from new residents. Many have already been impacted by the increase in cars using the Springville bridge and freeway on ramps. Further, home owners said they had originally been told it was going to be mostly condos and town homes but that was changed to a lot more apartments than proposed.

“None of the other candidates are calling for a freeze to housing. They just want to keep building and not listen to the residents of Camarillo. There have been three debates and all the challengers keep saying is we should work with the developers to implement smart growth and infill. That’s not what the voters are telling me,” Goldberg explained.

If elected, Goldberg would have to sway the other Council Members to get on with his idea. It would not be an easy plan but Goldberg states he would like to uphold his pledge to the voters of Camarillo.
