nurse arial, sans-serif;”>The agenda for the October 10, 2016 Ventura City Council meeting includes Requests for Call for Review of one project located at 11101 Carlos St and one project located on the south side of Citrus Drive, 400 feet east of Wells Road.

The Planning Commission Staff Report dated 11 May 2016 for Project 8427 located on the south side of Citrus Drive, 400 feet east of Wells Road includes an Exception for Parking and a Warrant for Parking Services and Open Space.  The Staff Report falsely states the Exception and Warrant is justified “because the subject site is uniquely disadvantaged for surrounding properties because the shape the front property line is curved and combined with the existing Citrus Avenue right-of-way and center left-turn lane results in insufficient pavement widths  for on-street parking.”.  The below digital image taken on Oct 09, 2016 shows parking is currently allowed on both sides of Citrus Avenue and there is no center left-turn lane.

  1. The proposed project will only exacerbate parking problems on Citrus Avenue.  Current residents of the Citrus Apartments located across the street from the proposed project are already complaining of inadequate parking spaces.
  2. The project located at 11101 Carlos St includes a Warrant to allow 20 of the required 43 parking spaces to be within garages.
  3. Request the City Council take all actions necessary to assure adequate parking is available for residents of new projects.
