The Crime & Safety Committee will meet first, followed by the Housing & Land Use Committee, the Community Engagement Committee, and the Wellness Gardening and Greening Committee.

Hello Ventura Village Neighbors,
Covid19 and the subsequent closure of the Phillips Community Center created a significant barrier to holding our monthly committee, board, and general membership meetings. It had been our hope that the danger would pass and we would be able to return to the normal routine. Unfortunately, this has not been the case and a plan is being put in place so that going forward we will not have further lapses in meetings.
