Public invited to discuss proposed overlay zone for crisis housing, Dec. 7

sale arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;”>The City of Ventura is holding a public meeting to discuss the proposed overlay zone for the Arundell District, located at Market Street and Telephone Road, on Wednesday, December 7, at 6pm at South Coast Fellowship Church, 4050 Market Street, Ventura.  The purpose of the meeting is to work with property and business owners and the public to explore the feasibility of creating crisis housing in this area, identify any issues from the overlay and discuss the conditional use criteria and operational standards intended to mitigate the impact of this potential use in this existing zone.

Property in the Arundell District Area is currently zoned for industrial and manufacturing use.  The proposed overlay zone would allow crisis housing and social service programs to co-locate and operate in this area with a Conditional Use Permit.

In July 2016 the Ventura City Council directed staff to explore amendments to zoning and regulation ordinances that would affect property within the Arundell District. City staff is expecting to bring recommended actions about the overlay zone to the Ventura Planning Commission in early 2017 and to the Ventura City Council in March 2017. 

Citizens who cannot attend the meeting, may email their comments and ideas to [email protected]
