Item 12A Public Hearing Item: Water Resources Net Zero Fee Update

Ventura’s Net Zero Water Policy was implemented in 2016 to ensure that new development does not adversely affect the water supply or water supply reliability of the City’s existing customers and/or approved new development. It builds in a process in which developers pay their share of costs to build and maintain appropriate water infrastructure.
The City Council will consider updating (lowering) their per acre foot fee for water. This will directly impact the fees that are paid into the City by developers of new projects.
