“The improvements will create an exciting and unique new entryway into Harbor Village”
The Ventura Port District the third phase of the ongoing Harbor Village beautification project.
The large entry area to Ventura Harbor Village will be transformed into a people-friendly pedestrian area with new seating, new planter areas with palm trees, and artwork, including a map of the Channel Islands inlaid as decorative paving. Other improvements throughout Harbor Village will include new colored decorative paving, decorative stairs, curved walls, entry signs, public art, planter areas, palm trees, seating areas, bistro tables and a handicapped accessible ramp.
The work, which began the first week of January 2017, is a continuation of a beautification project that began at Harbor Village in 2014. Improvements made so far includ new eco-friendly landscaping, LED lighting, new lighting along the promenade, and other environmentally friendly enhancements that save water and energy.
“These improvements will create an exciting and unique new entryway into Harbor Village,” Ventura Port District Business Operations Manager Brian Pendleton said.
The Ventura Port District Board of Port Commissioners awarded the construction contract at its November 9, 2016 meeting, to Oxnard-based Viola, Inc., for the sum of $1.57 million – the Port District’s budget for the project. All businesses are open during construction and the project’s estimated completion is targeted for summer 2017.
