Umbrellas at Ventura Aquatics Center


As one of the initial steps in implementing the “infill first” strategy of the 2005 Ventura General Plan, the City embarked upon a comprehensive planning process to ensure mixed uses, connectivity and fully walkable neighborhoods that integrate mobility, green spaces, and civic amenities.


Land Use Changes Proposed for Montalvo Area

Invitation to provide feedback on proposed land use regulations


The Montalvo community was officially incorporated into the City of Ventura in September 2012.  Along with changes to water, trash, fire and police services, Montalvo property owners were also affected by land use regulations (General Plan and zoning) changing from County of Ventura to City of Ventura.

Montalvo residents have expressed concern regarding these land use changes, and as an effort to address these concerns, the City of Ventura is proposing changes to land use designations for many of the properties in the Montalvo area.

At a community meeting on Oct. 28, 2014, City planners presented proposed changes to the Victoria Avenue Corridor Plan, Zoning Ordinance, and the General Plan.  Download the presentation here (PDF).
