The Community Development Department (CD) is responsible for planning and zoning, development review, housing, homeless services and code enforcement for the City of Ventura. Our department works to ensure that new construction and additions to existing structures meet the policies and guidelines that have been established for public safety, zoning and development. CD also works with various city commissions that help guide and advise the City Council regarding growth in the city.
Many projects that come before the city for review are presented to one or more commissions or committees for recommendations to the City Council.
