The city is sitting on millions of dollars of federal money earmarked for low-income residents, enough to put it fourth in the nation on the Department of Housing and Urban Development's list of reluctant spenders. But city officials blame the backup on staff turmoil--and say they are well on their way to spending nearly all the money on rebuilding some of the aging Ventura Avenue area. As of October, cities were allowed to have two years' worth of community development money on hand.

Ventura Keys residents packed City Council chambers Monday to protest an annual assessment for dredging the silt out of their back-yard waterways. The Ventura City Council was considering late Monday whether to tax an average property owner about $1,725 for periodic dredging and cleaning up debris. The maintenance district was formed in September, 1991, over vocal objections from many of the 300 Keys homeowners.

The Ventura Parks and Recreation Commission tonight will consider approving a study that recommends the best way to link two bicycle paths into the largest continuous bike trail in Ventura County. The proposed Ventura River Trail would connect the state's 3.5-mile Omer Rains Trail along the Ventura coastline with the county's 9.5-mile Ojai Valley Trail at Foster Park.

Plank by plank, inching their way out over the Pacific with chain saws and hammers, construction workers are rebuilding all 1,958 feet of the 121-year-old Ventura Pier. By the time it reopens in October, little if anything will remain of the original landmark that has, through fire, termite infestation and countless storms, become one of Ventura County's beloved fishing spots.
