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.

Trying to stop graffiti activity in Ventura, the City Council Monday passed a law Monday that prohibits the sale of spray-paint, markers and glass-etching tools to minors. "Graffiti is becoming a real problem in Ventura," said Assistant City Atty. Amy Albano, who helped draft the law. "This way, we're getting at the source of it." Police and city staff members said they decided to propose the ordinance after noticing a rise in vandalism since November.

Two weeks after the worst graffiti vandalism spree in Ventura history, the City Council on Monday will consider passing a law that prohibits the sale of spray-paint, markers and glass-etching tools to minors. Drafting of the law preceded the widespread vandalism along Main Street, which targeted 60 to 80 businesses and homes earlier this month and caused between $10,000 and $20,000 in property damage.

The city of Ventura has tentatively approved a strict water conservation measure, one of the latest communities to take such action because of the statewide drought. The measure, which will get a second council vote next week, includes a ban on new water service hookups. The drought has caused a number of communities in the hardest-hit Central Coast region to adopt drastic water-saving measures.

The Ventura City Council on Monday decided to extend a temporary law banning adult bookstores and theaters until officials decide on restrictions that will limit where the businesses can be located. The ordinance was first adopted June 15, 1992, and was scheduled to expire next Monday, said Everett Millais, community development director. The council voted unanimously to extend it for another year.

The Ventura City Council has given final approval to an ordinance that imposes financial penalties for excessive water use and creates a moratorium on hookups for new construction. The law is designed to reduce the city's water use by 30% in response to the statewide drought. Beginning in June, water users may be penalized up to 10 times the normal rate for excess use. In most cases, single-family homes will be limited to 296 gallons a day to allow for watering lawns.
