Hi Sheldon:
I want to personally thank your help at the City of Ventura Planning Office. I have been there on own several times over the years trying to make sense of some work previously done on my house. Thank you for helping me get some straightforward answers, and a little bit of clarity on how to move forward. Thank you also for the Ventura Breeze. It’s wonderful having our own hometown newspaper to keep us informed on local events that concern us all.

Once again, many thanks!

RE: Citation No. V060012582

WOW! What a way to spoil a lovely Saturday evening in downtown Ventura by getting a parking ticket at the free parking structure. Yes, 4 Hour Parking is conspicuously posted everywhere, so “my bad”.

But, my friend and I went to the movie and then to dinner. Arrived at 2:50 for a 3:10 movie, exited the movie at 5:30, sat down to dinner at 6:00 (had to wait for a table), then exited the restaurant at 8:10. So, after spending well over $100 in downtown Ventura, we each got a $40 parking ticket.

We had a choice to see the same movie at Riverpark Cinema where there are many restaurants, but we chose downtown. Perhaps next time we will go to Riverpark.

I have paid the parking citation.

Sadly,
Sally Bodine-Ventura

Sally: What a shame perhaps 4-hour free parking is not enough and should possibly be 6-hours.
