The program has been designed to make a simple, effective and efficient way for our Ventura City residents to do the retrofit on their homes that are on "unbraced cripple walls" or that are not bolted to the foundation. A standard retrofit plan is available for free at the permit counter, located at 501 Poli Street Room 117. A single sheet plan consists of :
- Area to draw the outline of your home
- Technical notes
- Construction details
- Reinforcement schedule
Supplemental information required:
An alteration is defined as "any construction or renovation to an existing structure other than a repair or addition". On or before January 1, 2017, noncompliant plumbing fixtures in any single-family residential property shall be replaced."
