5-Year Regional Consolidated Plan and Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice
For the 2020-2024 consolidated planning cycle, the County of Ventura, on behalf of its entitlement area (the unincorporated portions of the County and the Cities of Fillmore, Moorpark, Ojai, Port Hueneme and Santa Paula), and the Cities of Camarillo, Oxnard, San Buenaventura (Ventura), Simi Valley and Thousand Oaks are collaborating to jointly develop a five-year Regional Consolidated Plan (2020-2024) and Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice.
The County of Ventura will hold a public hearing on the draft 2020-2024 Regional Consolidated Plan (Regional CP) and draft 2020 Regional Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI) on February 4, 2020 at 10:30 a.m. in the Board of Supervisors Hearing Room, Government Center, Hall of Administration, 800 South Victoria Avenue, Ventura, CA 93009. The purpose of this public hearing is to receive comments prior to seeking final Board of Supervisor’s approval and transmitting final versions of the Regional CP and AI to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The draft Regional CP identifies the housing and community development needs in the region and sets forth a strategic plan for addressing the identified needs. It also satisfies the minimum statutory requirements of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships Program, and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) programs. The Regional CP covers the planning period of July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2025. The County of Ventura is the lead agency in the development of this Regional CP, which includes the Ventura County Urban County Entitlement Area (comprised of the unincorporated areas and the cities of Fillmore, Moorpark, Ojai, Port Hueneme, and Santa Paula), along with five entitlement jurisdictions: the cities of Camarillo, Oxnard, Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, and San Buenaventura (Ventura).
The draft AI presents a demographic profile of the County of Ventura, assesses the extent of fair housing issues among specific groups, and evaluates the availability of a range of housing choices for all residents. This report also analyzes the conditions in the private market and public sector that may limit the range of housing choices or impede a person’s access to housing. The AI covers the entirety of Ventura County.
The documents will be available beginning on January 21, 2020 and ending no earlier than April 24, 2020. Written comments should be directed to Community Development, c/o Christy Madden, County Executive Office, County of Ventura, 800 S. Victoria Avenue, L#1940, Ventura, CA 93009, or to Community.Development@ventura.org.
