CAMARILLO : Center Foes Expected to Present Signatures

Opponents of a proposed factory outlet shopping center in south Camarillo are expected to turn in 4,000 protest signatures Tuesday when the Camarillo Planning Commission resumes its hearing on the project.

The Sammis Co. of Irvine is seeking to convert 86.5 acres of agricultural land south of the Ventura Freeway and east of Pleasant Valley Road into a retail and recreation center. The company needs an amendment to the city General Plan to do that.

Last week, 45 individuals and five groups signed up to speak when the Planning Commission began its review of the center's environmental impact report. They were left waiting after nearly five hours of testimony by planning consultants and Sammis proponents.

The hearing will resume at 6:30 p.m. in the council chambers of Camarillo City Hall at 601 Carmen Drive.
