The entitlement approvals for the site include the UC Hansen Trust Property Specific Plan and its companion Vesting Tentative Tract Map, and Development Agreement. Development of the site will ultimately include 131 market-rate detached homes, approximately 31 market-rate attached rowhouse condominiums, and 6 acres of Public Park and open space areas. Additionally, a 1.4 acre building pad will be donated to the City of Ventura’s Housing Authority, which has agreed to construct 20-24 units of Farmworker rental housing on the donated site.
The UC Hansen Trust Property was bequeathed to the University of California by the late Thelma Hansen as part of her overall endowment to create the Thelma Hansen Fund, for the support and maintenance of the University’s agricultural research and extension activities in Ventura County. All net proceeds from the University’s sale of the UC Hansen Trust Property will go to fund the long term mission of the Thelma Hansen Fund.
