It's been a long time coming, but an innovative mixed-use property development could finally be on track for construction in Ojai.
The Craftsman Village project, to be located at 611 Pearl St., got its permits approved at the Dec. 3 meeting of the Ojai Planning Commission, and the builders say the ball is rolling. "The goal is to have ground broken by middle March," said Rick Neilson, principal with Raven Ridge Development. "The main thing left to do now is to finish the new construction design drawings."
