Ventura Village Committees will meet on Thursday, June 25th, beginning at 5:30 pm, at Trinity First Lutheran School.  Please come to the south parking lot side of the building on 13th Avenue just north of Franklin Avenue. 

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. 

Masks are required and social distancing will be observed. Disposable masks will be provided to anyone who shows up without one.

For the time being, our crime prevention specialist Kali Pliego will come and give crime and safety updates, but we will not have any of the police officers at the meeting.

Statement from Ventura Village – June 23rd, 2020

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.
