The Ventura City Council is expected to replace the current moratorium on building permits with a program that will allow 185 new units a year, city officials said Friday.

Residents of the Ventura East neighborhood say a developer's plan to build more than 200 homes in a 42-acre lemon grove has left a sour taste in their mouths. Notified just three weeks ago that Beazer Homes is seeking approval from the Ventura County Planning Commission to build 227 homes at the corner of Telegraph and Kimball roads, residents have launched a belated campaign to either stop or slow the project.

For one long, cold winter, the family of six lived in a tool shed made of corrugated steel. Cramped and lacking plumbing, the immigrant family members still fought hard to stay when their Camarillo landlord insisted they move out, farm worker Fidel Andrade recalled.

Raised on a sprawling coastal ranch at Point Mugu, Rocio Villasenor would tag along to translate when her Mexican immigrant parents drove to nearby Oxnard to see a doctor.

Flush with a $95,000 profit from a Los Angeles County home, Mike Riach thought he'd have no trouble finding a house he could afford in Ventura County. But the 33-year-old firefighter lost out on a full-price offer in Ventura. Then he found that just about anything in his price range was sold by the time he saw it. Finally, after months of hunting, Riach and his wife, Suzie, got lucky in a lottery-type sale in Camarillo and bought the last model home in a new subdivision for $340,000.
