The Midtown Ventura Community Council is a non-profit organization formed in the summer of 1997. The purpose of the Midtown Ventura Community Council is to improve the Midtown Ventura area. Monthly meetings are open to all in the community.
Representing the interests of 30,000 residents, the Midtown Ventura Community Council works to better this diverse and historic area.
Midtown is the heart of the city with two hospitals, the town’s largest shopping district and the timeless Pierpont Inn.
The volunteers of the community council over the past 16 years have partnered with local businesses and residents to improve public areas from San Jon to Mills Road.
Recent projects include the restoration of the Rainbow Bridge Playground at Blanche Reynolds School and creation of an ocean friendly garden with landscaped bioswales at Will Rogers School.
Our next adopt-a-school project is at Loma Vista Elementary School.
The Midtown Ventura Community Council’s ultimate vision is the creation of the Midtown Commons, a park space that would replace a portion of an underutilized city parking lot in the heart of midtown. To raise money for our community projects, we help host Food Truck Friday on the third Friday of each month.
We know we have big goals and can use the help. That’s why we encourage midtown residents to attend our monthly meetings at Grace Church and to participate in our mission to preserve, enhance, and revitalize Midtown Ventura.
