    City of Ventura Gets to Decide the RV Camping Issue in the North Avenue Area, Not Just the Board of Supervisors

    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

    Is the article as to the “camping” art a ‘site”? If I understand it this is an area where people tend to park their RVs at. As a public roadway; it is subject to the CVC. The City/County/State cannot ‘regulate” parking except as per the CVC. The CVC does not allow ‘parking prohibitions” except as to a few specified ‘maintaining” or ‘safety” such as fire lanes and some narrow exceptions. They cannot ban ‘parking” or ban by type of vehicle. Do not think for a minute that any of theses politicians bureaucrats will actually ‘follow the law”. People, we us, you and I, have the right to park our registered vehicles on all public streets, our streets, whether we wish to take a nap in them or not. Criminal activities, dumping sewage and such, are crimes, treat crimes as crimes, not non-crimes as crimes, I suggest.

    I think there should be a rule that exludes child molesters from moving to the RV Camping Area, especially when there is a child care center within a mile of that area. This is in reference to: Ross Wollschlager living there.

    I work on Crooked Palm and I get to work and it is still dark and their is not way I am safe while I am getting out of my car to go into my office. These people leave trash and they even are seen peeing on the trees out in the open. It is disgustingly gross to even drive to work anymore because they are dirty and disgusting

    Because the area falls under the city’s sphere of influence,if the city decides to do anything, residents in the area will have no say. Residents are not allowed to vote for city officials and as such are not represented.

    The homeless on crooked pal. And north ventura Avenue are NOT good people. They threaten you when you walk by and there are serial offenders living there. Their spaces are getting larger and larger as they gather more junk. And the constantly leave trash everywhere. Some have large RVs with classic cars that they pull around. How do you not have money for a roof? But spend all your time living on the street and fixing up a classic car, which im sure isn’t free. Its a huge joke

    Why is it when anything goes wrong in our society you people blame the homeless. homeless people don’t do anything wrong other than then be homeless I’m sure you’re only one paycheck away from being with them. you sicken me the way you blame them for everything you yourself are just as much of a problem as they are

    Not to be mean, but this is one of the most poorly written things I have read… And you cite nothing? Terribly, terribly structured article.

    This might sound harsh but the homeless cannot be allowed to take root. I would suggest the city and county take hard study of the Santa Ana riverbed/bike path debacle. The homeless took root and essentially created a medieval hamlet. The city tried to clear them out but the homeless advocates got involved and it ended up becoming a massive headache for the city of Santa Ana and Orange County. In the end it took years of court proceedings and millions of dollars. I certainly hope Ventura city and county do not fall into the same trap. The situation at the end of the avenue is getting worse and more people are showing up and setting down roots, soon you will not be able to make them leave, it may already be too late.

    I’m a single mother with a 10 yr old boy. My mother and her husband recently tested positive for Covid19. Me and my son are negative. I am paying to help keep my son in boys n girls club while school starts. While I work full time 77dlrs a week. I now have to fork 80 dlrs per night to sleep in a hotel till my parents are cleared from Covid19. There are no vouchers for homeless if they got sick and need to recover?. Not to mention had my car respossed during a pandemic. Were is the support. Were will I go tommorow. I cant go home till my father is better. Till then. I might have to sleep in my car. Yes here. Till they get better. At what point will they start helping those with less.

    Please contact County Health Dept. Sounds like you might qualify for living assistance due to the COVID factor.

    The stench of sewage has increased as RV North Ave popularity has grown. How about building outdoor showers and bathroom facilities in Foster Park to accommodate the nomadic humans and reduce pollution. In the meantime, please provide porta-potties. I miss biking along the bike path or road to Ojai.
