MOTION FOR CONSIDERATION AT THE OCTOBER 10, 2018 VENTURA VILLAGE BOARD MEETING AND THE OCTOBER 10, 2018 GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING
Dear Ventura Village Members,
Over the past few years Ventura Village has passed motions to fund a Neighborhood Priority Plan (NPP) using Community Participation Plan (CPP) funds. The City calls these actions Plan Modifications (Plan Mods). The City is now processing these Plan Mods, but has requested that Ventura Village first use funds from the old Neighborhood Revitalization Program Phase I and Phase II Plans (NRP) that have been returned to Ventura Village from old contracts. The remaining balance will then be taken from the current Ventura Village CPP contract as originally approved.
The following Recommended Motion will be on the agendas for the October 10, 2018 Board and General Membership Meetings. This motion will clean up all the old balances and bring the Ventura Village NPP Plan up to date.
Please attend the General Membership Meeting on October 10, 2018 at the Phillips Community Center Dining Room at 7:00 pm.
Mary Watson, Fiscal Manager
