Gold Coast Transit District public input sessions June 7

Gold Coast Transit District has planned two information sessions to gather public input on the service changes planned for July 31st. Through several interactive stations and activities, the public will also have an opportunity to share their own transit needs and ideas for future transit improvements, and provide feedback on the design of new bus stop signs.

“Through the use of planning software and on-board passenger counting technology, our planning staff has the ability to analyze the efficiency of the entire system and make adjustments that ensure buses are on time. However, bringing that information to the public and incorporating passenger feedback is critical to the success of any change”, said Vanessa Rauschenberger, GCTD Planning and Marketing Director.

Ventura City Fire Department respond to fire at two story residential home

On April 29, at 3:33pm, Ventura City Fire Department responded to a report of smoke coming from a two story residential home in the 2300 Block of Woodpecker Ave.  Upon arrival fire crews found a fire burning in a bedroom on the second floor that had extended into the attic. Firefighting efforts were initially hampered by boarded up windows and locked doors throughout the structure. Firefighters extinguished the blaze 25 minutes after arrival. Firefighters searched the house for occupants during the firefighting effort but none were found.

Two firefighters suffered minor injuries when portions of the second story ceiling collapsed.  Both firefighters were treated and released from a local hospital.
