In citywide residential density. From that point forward, the public, this newspaper and at least one council member have been operating under the impression that the number of units in the bank correlated with how much general plan density could be increased without going to the polls.

Now another council member is suggesting that may not be the case.

At the City Council’s goal-setting meeting in May, longtime Councilmember and Measure E co-author Andy Fox suggested that E was being incorrectly applied. He said that instead of relying on the “bank,” which has dwindled to around 500 or so units, the city should instead figure out the exact number of housing units that could have been built in 1996 and compare it with the current figure, saying that was the law’s intent. Why is that important? Because such a study is likely to reveal thousands of additional units of housing that can be built without a vote of the people.

Fox, anticipating the negative reaction such a revelation could cause among the city’s no-growth voting bloc, urged caution, saying that even if the city decided there were thousands of additional units permitted under E, there is no place to build them, even if the council wanted them, which he assures us they don’t.

The Ventura County Genealogical Society will present a free family-history seminar Sat., June 17 in the Camarillo Library community room, 4101 Las Posas Road.

Nancy Loe, professional archivist, librarian and genealogist, will offer the following presentations: at 1 p.m., “Picture This: Cataloging Your Digital Family Photographs” with simple, effective processes; and at 2:30 p.m., “Simplifying Genealogy Sources and Citations” on bringing order to the resources used in family history research.

Loe has appeared on PBS’s “American Experience” and at RootsTech and Jamboree. She’s written genealogy guides on organizing and simplifying research.

In addition, prior to the seminar, there will be a VCGS DNA special-interest group meeting from 11 a.m. to noon. Attendees should bring DNA user name and password; family tree (paper or electronic); and laptop, tablet or other portable device, if possible, to facilitate research.

acorn housing?

Has anybody heard of them? Used them? Or know somebody who has? We're fist time home owners, and need a little help-they seem legit and have alot to offer..anybody have an opinion on these kinds of programs?

I've met with them before, they are legit. They help with first time home buyers with mortgages and finding low income homes. They didn't ask for a fee, but there is a charge to become a member, but I don't know if its required.
