Four years after the Northridge earthquake, the state and federal governments have agreed to pay $2.8 million to widen the Arroyo Simi flood channel, a move that could allow some residents to finally acquire loans to repair their quake-damaged homes. Officials notified Ventura County on Friday that a disaster recovery plan had been approved that would eliminate much of the area's flood plain, thereby removing many of the barriers that have kept homeowners from securing financial help to rebuild.

A congressional committee has recommended a total of $7.28 million for several Ventura County flood control and navigation projects next year--including $4.8 million to complete expansion of the breakwater to increase safety at the entrance to Ventura Harbor. The money was included in the massive $21.95-billion energy and water development spending bill passed Thursday by the House Appropriations Committee.

The Ventura Parks and Recreation Commission has approved a study that recommends connecting two bicycle paths to make the longest bike trail in Ventura County. The proposed Ventura River Trail, which would be built by the city, goes north from the Pacific Ocean to Foster Park, east of the Ventura River. The 5.5-mile connecting trail would link the 3.5-mile Omer Rains Trail along the Ventura coastline with the 9.5-mile Ojai Valley Trail.

As construction continues on Ventura County's Todd Road jail on a lemon grove west of Santa Paula, a group of environmentalists have stepped up their efforts to undermine the new lockup. A Santa Barbara Superior Court judge in less than two weeks will consider a request by the group Citizens to Save the Green Belt to halt construction of a flood wall along the Todd Barranca, which is just west of the jail site.
