Tara Jeffrey speaks during public comment at the Jan 24 Ojai City Council meeting in support of the referendum she filed with just over a dozen supporters standing behind her. 

In a 3-2 vote at its Jan. 24 meeting, Ojai City Council voted to send the Ojai Bungalows/Green Hawk Development Agreement to a vote of the people to be on the ballot for the March 5, 2024 primary election. 

Mayor Betsy Stix voted no, saying she supported the issue being on the November 2024 ballot, which is a presidential election and will therefore have more voters participating.
