The section of Highway 33 from Fairview Road to its intersection with West Ojai Avenue has been named the Ventura County Deputy Sheriff Peter Aguirre Jr. Memorial Highway. California Gov. Jerry Brown recently signed Assembly Resolution 142, making the designation official. A dedication ceremony was held Friday at the Ventura County Sheriff’s Ojai Station. A sheriff’s deputy, Aguirre was shot and killed in 1996 while responding to a domestic disturbance reported in Meiners Oaks.
