Happy Holidays Ventura!

This year has underscored our shared strength.

Mayor Joe Schroeder

In this season of joy, as we share precious moments with our loved ones and unite as a community to embrace beloved traditions and extend a helping hand, I am reminded of our collective journey throughout 2023. This year has underscored our shared strength and unwavering community spirit, marked by significant milestones and a profound sense of pride for Ventura.

Throughout the year, our community has joined hands in celebrating moments of joy, unity, and cultural richness, propelling us forward. Whether at local events, community workshops, or city programs, these shared experiences have fortified the bonds that make Ventura an extraordinary place to live, work, and play.

In 2023, Ventura celebrated notable achievements through collaborative efforts with outstanding community partners. This collective engagement extended beyond thriving tourism and attracting world-class events like the X Games. It also encompassed the development of programs and services aimed at addressing homelessness and affordable housing, promoting increased environmental sustainability, bolstering economic vitality, enhancing community resilience, and spearheading initiatives for active transportation and future development.

Additionally, the City increased funding allocated for roadway improvements and public infrastructure projects while achieving its lowest overall crime rate in over three decades. This collaborative approach underscores our unwavering commitment to addressing diverse aspects of community well-being and strengthening Ventura’s future with a unified vision.

As we approach the New Year, I am deeply moved by your kindness, dedication, and engagement. Your voices remain essential in guiding decisions, shaping goals, and charting the course for Ventura.

Thank you once again, and I eagerly anticipate the continued collaboration that will further enhance the vibrancy of our city in the coming year.

Wishing you and your loved ones a joyous and festive holiday season!
