From the Ventura County Star:

No current residents at the Westview Village public housing complex in Ventura have an electric vehicle, but newly constructed units will include electric vehicle charging stations. 

The charging stations are just one way to make sustainable features accessible to public housing residents, according to Denise Wise, CEO of the Housing Authority of the City of Buenaventura, which developed and manages the complex.

“We don’t want to preclude anyone” from getting an electric vehicle, Wise said. “Let’s not continue to propagate the stereotype that residents of public housing can’t or shouldn’t have certain things.”

This philosophy is evident throughout the newly constructed complex, which includes a new basketball court, a community garden and new playgrounds.
