Learn about Ventura’s new permanent homeless shelter, plans for a commercial development at the Golden China Restaurant site and meet the city’s new Emergency Services Manager on Thursday, November 14, at the Midtown Ventura Community Council meeting.
The meeting starts at 7 pm in Cooper Hall at Grace Church, 65 MacMillan Avenue.
Meredith Hart, safe and clean program manager for the City of Ventura, will update the homeless shelter set to open early next year. In partnership with Ventura County and the City of Ventura, along with funding from Measure O, the shelter will be an integral resource in helping those less fortunate become more self-sufficient.
Daniel Wall, Ventura’s new Emergency Services Manager, will introduce himself and the new position which will help Ventura prepare and respond to natural disasters. Unfortunately, brushfires, flooding and mudslides have become all too common along the coastline of Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.
Residents can provide their input for a commercial project proposed for Highway 101 and Seaward Avenue at the site currently occupied by Golden China restaurant. Todd Dwyer, president and founder of On Point Development, along with Development Associate Chase McConnell, will present their proposal for the site and ask and answer questions.
A hotel is currently under construction next to the proposed project. The restaurant would be demolished to make way for the new commercial development.
