The Ventura Chamber’s Economic Development & Legislative Committee promotes the local, state, and federal legislative interests of the business community and works to highlight and discuss issues of interest, and is dedicated to identifying and solving the key economic issues facing the City of Ventura. Year round, the Chamber monitors key development projects in the City, as well as notable policies from our local legislators and how these projects and policies affect the Ventura Business Community as a whole. The committee is also dedicated to promoting the local, state, and federal legislative interests of the business community and works to highlight and discuss issues of interest to our members.
The Chamber has tackled key issues such as the County’s Resource Management Agency and how their work affects local restaurants; the City of Ventura’s Property Maintenance Codes and how they affect potential property owners; the various Economic Development projects being worked on by the Ventura County Community College District–Division of Economic Development; the City of Ventura’s current water supply and demand; the City’s plan for the Westside community; and the City of Ventura’s General Plan, which included both a review of the plan, and the formation of a task force to determine which elements of the plan the Chamber feels is most significant and needs to be brought to the attention of City Council.
In addition to analyzing the important economic topics in the City, the Economic Development Committee also receives liaison reports from the City of Ventura, as well as the key economic sectors in the City, such as the Port District, the Ventura Visitor’s Center & Convention Bureau, the Auto Center, the Pacific View Mall, Community Memorial Hospital, and Downtown.
