It may raise the question of the equal protection clause of the Constitution, such that it will be legal everywhere, not just there. On the Rincon, on PCH, the County charges for parking on the ocean front. Whether the County or Caltrans actually owns the property on PCH is another question. It looks like the State owns the shoulder of PCH and the County is either operating the campground under a contract with the State, or perhaps it owes the State a refund. Maybe the County will produce such a contract if asked. In writing.
The ones on North Ventura Avenue and Crooked Palm Rd. (Not “Lane,” as has been written) are as grubby as they are pathetic. We have to be sympathetic with some of the people so poor that they live in RVs on the street, including the children. Whether there is a better solution remains to be seen.
The North Avenue area is under a joint powers agreement with the City of Ventura called the North Ventura Avenue Area Plan, requiring both the City and the County approve any planning actions there. It is within the Sphere of Influence of the City of Ventura, and within its Planning Area. https://docs.vcrma.org/images/pdf/planning/plans/N_Ventura_Ave_Area_Plan.pdf
