The former Ojai Valley Bowl building is the subject of yet another proposal that will be heard by the Ojai Planning Commission.

Despite more than three hours of testimony before the Ojai Building Appeals Board (BAB) Wednesday, the fate of 1202 E. Ojai Ave. remains unclear. On a brighter note, though, it was revealed a potential buyer for the old Ojai Valley Bowl property is waiting in the wings.
As the hour neared 5 p.m., BAB Chair Bob Daddi called for a motion to continue the proceedings. The request was made partly because of the lateness of the hour, and partly because the 250-page brief from Ventura attorney Joshua Hopstone, representing appellant Gail Bazzano, had reached the board only 24 hours beforehand. A motion continuing the appeal to Monday was then passed with Steve Quilici, Dale Hanson, William Ulrich and Daddi voting in favor. BAB Member Thomas Farmer voted against the motion.
