Envisioning how Ventura Harbor will look in 20 years : Ventura : Ventura County Star

"Ideas include the introduction of water taxis and a pedestrian-bicycle ferry to Marina Park and the nearby Pierpont neighborhood. Trailheads linking outdoor enthusiasts and birders to nearby wetlands in the Santa Clara River mouth also were discussed at last month’s meetings with the public.

The harbor is separated from Highway 101 and greater Ventura by hundreds of acres of farm fields. While unlikely to be developed soon, those fields could be bisected with a two-lane, tree-lined road with adjacent bike lanes, the vision plan shows. The road would run parallel or near an existing bike path linking neighborhoods near Pacific View mall to Harbor Boulevard."
