Together with your help and support, we can save our community!
Our community needs your help! Foster Park, a small neighborhood in unincorporated Ventura County was severely affected by the 2023 Winter Storms that slammed Southern California. Multiple homes and structures in our area were damaged, leaving many properties subject to debris flows and sedimentation from future storms.
Our primary way in and out is a road and fair weather crossing running through Coyote Creek. Because of the initial damage done on 1/9-1/10 our road remains closed, flooded, filled with silt, debris and sediment. The debris flow is approximately 5-10’ deep, 30-50' wide and approximately 2 miles long, beginning at the Casitas Dam down to the confluence of the Ventura River. In some areas the levels are so high, the silt and debris have become level (wall to wall) with the homes along the creek. (Photo of our road, top left)
These issues leave us using a private road to get in and out of our neighborhood that is wide enough to be one way with switchbacks, turns and small drop-offs. In the event of a mandatory evacuation due to fire or flood/mud-debris slide, cars will not be able to back up or down with limited access for large emergency vehicles making our situation extremely time sensitive.
YOUR support however, is key in helping us solve this problem.
With the support of Supervisor Matt LaVere's office and in collaboration with Ventura Public Works, Watershed Protection District, NRCS/USDA, Ventura County Emergency Services Agency, Congressman Salud Carbajal's and CALOES something is being done.
