Ventura City Council removes artificial turf from turf rebate program

The Chapter educated the City staff and City Council about requiring OFG criteria in the their proposed turf removal rebate program.

When the Chapter spoke at the City Council meeting and at subsequent venues, Council members and staff were reluctant to not allow artificial turf and instead planned to require that 50% of the landscape had to be living plants. After some reflection, a City Councilwoman made a motion at a subsequent Council meeting to not allow artificial turf and the motion passed 5-2.
