The Planning Division is comprised of two work units, Development Review and Planning Programs, which function as the City’s authority for permitting development applications, creating regulatory programs, policies and ordinances, implementing affordable housing and partnership CDBG/HOME projects, and engaging with the public and stakeholders in overall community development in the city. Collectively, all Division staff work collaboratively with applicants, developers, neighbors and community partners to ensure a sustainable future for the City of Ventura.
