The City of Ojai is set to host an event marking the final step in the City’s certification as the first  American Green Zone Alliance “Green Zone” City in Ventura County. The event will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 12, 2019 at Ojai City Hall, 401 S. Ventura Street, Ojai, CA 93023. The event will also include the dismantling of the City’s gas-powered maintenance equipment that was used to service all municipal park and landscape maintenance needs of the City. This equipment has been replaced with clean battery-electric equipment.

The event will celebrate successful completion of the City’s pilot project, which is the first municipal conversion to zero-emission landscape maintenance equipment in Ventura County. The City has realized benefits from the conversion, including air quality and reduced noise from the equipment. This innovative project that was made possible by a generous grant from the Ventura County Air Pollution Control District.
