The Ventura City Council is expected today to allow new residential housing if developers replace water-wasting toilets in existing buildings with water-saving models. The toilet requirement is part of a series of actions by the council to lift a three-year ban on residential development imposed during the drought. The proposal was passed last fall for commercial developers, and this action would extend it to include residential developers.

The Ventura City Council has decided to loosen restrictions on residential development and pave the way for projects delayed since 1990 by the drought. The council voted unanimously to consider new proposals for up to 35 houses or apartments, and scheduled a May public hearing to allow nine stalled projects to move forward. Since March, 1990, no new housing has been permitted except for affordable units.

The Ventura City Council tonight will consider spending about $175,000 for a study on whether it is possible to pump water from beach sands for a desalination plant the city wants to build. If the sand contains large amounts of silt, clay and other materials, it will be difficult to draw water, and a pipe or well would be constructed offshore, said Glenn McPherson, project manager.

The Ventura County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved a $1.8-million loan to help pay design costs for a proposed four-story outpatient wing and five-story parking lot at Ventura County Medical Center.

About 60 residents attended a public meeting this week to give their opinions about the proposed expansion of the Buenaventura Mall. No definite decisions were made about the project Thursday evening, but developers are thinking about making some modifications based on residents' suggestions, said Lori Gatto, vice president of Santa Monica-based MaceRich Co., which owns the mall. "Let me assure you that this is not a forum to placate people," Gatto told the audience.

About a dozen opponents of a downtown assessment district in Ventura protested outside the restaurant where a convention of downtown association leaders from around the state were gathered Friday night. The group carried American flags, banged cymbals and performed a Chinese lion dance outside a California Avenue restaurant in a symbolic "exorcism" of the Business Improvement District, organizers said.

The Ventura City Council on Monday authorized the sale of a lot at the northwest corner of Thompson Boulevard and Figueroa Street in downtown Ventura for development as a commercial or office project. The city is looking for a developer to build two Victorian-style buildings at the site to complement a State Court of Appeal courthouse that will also be designed in Victorian fashion, said Miriam Mack, director of the city's redevelopment agency.

A plan to build what could be Ventura County's first convention center has been revived--five years after the idea was shelved by the Ventura City Council. The Ventura County Fair Board on Tuesday decided to form a committee to gauge community support for the idea. The board also voted to spend $15,000 to update a 1986 economic study of the proposal.
