Who We Are

Ventura Citizens for Hillside Preservation is an all-volunteer grassroots organization that was organized by community members in November 2000 after we learned of plans to build a massive development in the hillsides of Ventura.

In November 2001, VCHP helped pass Measure P, which requires a vote of the people before city services can be extended to the hillsides. The following November, our group led the successful campaign to defeat the Measure A ballot initiative which would have allowed the construction of 1,390 houses in the hills.

We work to educate the public on the environmental and quality of life impacts of the proposed development, research alternatives to the development, and present a unified voice to public officials and landowners. We represent a growing nonpartisan cross-section of environmentally-minded community members.

A tax-exempt organization named Ventura Hillsides Conservancy has been formed to pursue the purchase of the entire hillsides area.
