A Ventura community group has filed a lawsuit against the city of Ventura over its approval of a six-story housing project with some affordable units.

Liveable Ventura filed the lawsuit Sept. 8 in Ventura County Superior Court, alleging that the city’s planning department and City Council violated state laws on housing density and environmental review in approving the downtown project.

The complaint also says the city and its representatives violated the California Coastal Code and left residents without minimal due process, including the right to a fair trial before the Planning Commission and City Council.

The project, developed by Vince Daly of The Daly Group, will build 94 multifamily units, including 13 designated for very low-income residents. The project is located at the northeast corner of Thompson Boulevard and Figueroa Street.
