The Ventura City Council tentatively approved a measure allowing residents to vote on development of the rugged hillsides behind the city. If the measure receives final City Council approval July 23, residents will be asked in November whether extension of water and sewer services to the 7,000-acre area should require voter approval. Denial of those services would scuttle the possible development of as many as 1,900 homes on the chaparral-dotted slopes and canyons that form the city's backdrop.
