    City of Ventura Launches General Plan Update

    Ventura, CA. — This week, the City of Ventura launches the first phase of public engagement activities to update the General Plan. The theme of the update “Our Vision. Our Future,” reflects the importance of encouraging community members to be involved in shaping Ventura’s quality of life for the next 20 to 30 years.
    “The General Plan seeks to maintain the unique charm and character of Ventura, while creating opportunities for future improvements in our City, ranging from affordable housing to health, to economic development, transportation, public safety, environmental sustainability, open space and more,” said Mayor Matt LaVere. “This is a tremendous opportunity to gather a diverse range of input as our community helps shape the vision for Ventura’s future.”
    The comprehensive update is a three-year process that is expected to take until 2023 to complete. Throughout the multi-year effort, the city will embark on a robust community engagement initiative that includes surveys, virtual and in-person workshops when safety allows, an interactive project website, meetings with Community Councils, engaging with a wide variety of residents and stakeholders within the community, and other interactive activities.
    Initial activities include the formation of a General Plan Advisory Committee (GPAC) to guide the update effort, meetings with Community Councils, and a workshop with the City Council on November 16, 2020. 
    The General Plan update effort will also include a Local Coastal Program update and the creation of a Climate Action Plan to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enhance environmental sustainability in Ventura. California state law requires every city and county to maintain an up-to-date General Plan to guide future growth and development.

    Ventura has dropped the ball in every aspect of helping businesses grow and residents rebuild and improve their homes. The permit department is a joke. The last general plan has been an epic failure.The fact that the city is directly responsible for the emergency water tanks and systems not to be working during the fires, per your own Treasurer because the diesel fuel had turned to stone in them, from not being checked in seven years, instead of six months as required begs the question about how do you plan on handling the update? It should not take three years to gather information. Ventura has become a perfect example of a mismanaged liberal town. Take one look out the door and you’ll see what’s happening to Ventura. If your that blind to see the homeless people, rampant crime, filthy streets and dirty beaches, then you have no business managing any part of the city and must actual live in Ventura. It used to a beautiful beach town. Maybe you haven’t notice the people fleeing to another state or city. We can go just two exits and enjoy the bountiful Oxnard Collection, robust with restaurants, shops and entertainment. Ventura… take a tour of the boarded buildings and run down store front desperate for a face lift. Main Street is dead towards Ventura high. Johnson drive is dead and so many other areas. Taking away the statue to give in to liberal cry babies who don’t even know history was the last straw. You’ve killed Ventura, take a bow. You certainly aren’t looking out for the citizens of Ventura when let the Governor shut us down for political games!
