Ventura Port District public meeting invitation

The Ventura Port District has an opportunity to consider a thoughtful and synergistic economic development strategy for two undeveloped sites in the Southwest harbor area. Wednesday, November 9, at 7:00pm.

Four Points Sheraton Ballroom 1050 Schooner Dr.

The Board of Port Commissioners approved a Request for Proposals (RFP) to Lease Ventura Port District Property for Development of Visitor Serving Uses which was released on May 2, 2016. Proposals were due August 12, 2016. On Wednesday, November 9, the District will hold an informational meeting at which time, three development teams who responded to the RFP will present their concepts for the two sites. This is the first public meeting, with additional meetings planned for 1st quarter 2017. No action will be taken on November 9 with respect to the proposals. However, the goal of the RFP is to ultimately select one or more development teams to enter lease negotiations with the District.

The District is focused on increasing the visitor serving uses throughout the harbor. The proposed in-fill projects provide the opportunity to do something special along the waterfront of Ventura Harbor.

The District is taking the first step in a lengthy entitlement and permitting process that involves the City of Ventura, the California Coastal Commission and community stakeholders.

They invite you to attend the first public meeting to learn more about the proposals being made by three different development teams. Your input is a valuable part of the process.
