6-29-2020 Ventura County BOS 6-26-20 RE-Vote to extend ERNs for CIHP – Brown Act Violation

6-29-2020 Harbor and Beach Community Alliance charges violation of California’s Brown Act, which ensures transparent government processes and public access, during a regular public Board of Supervisors’ meeting June 23. The issue at hand was a proposed nine-month extension of a developer’s Exclusive Right to Negotiate for three land parcels at Channel Islands Harbor.


We are your friends, neighbors and boaters. You’ve seen us educating and advocating for issues that impact our Harbor and Beaches. We speak up at Board of Supervisor Meetings. We circulate Petitions and write Letters to the City and County. Ask any neighborhood activist you will probably discover they are fellow HBCA volunteers. Harbor&Beach Community Alliance was created to preserve public access to coastal land. Oppose Harbor and Beach development that is not in the interests of the community and the environment. Communicate with local community and government agencies to protect public safety and access.

Next Steps…

About HBCA

What do we want?


Development that is consistent with the Coastal Act and is visitor-serving and harbor-oriented.


Going forward, what is needed is an updated Public Works Plan with a comprehensive Master Plan for the entire harbor.


Going forward, we would like to see a “change” to an open, transparent RFP (Request for Proposal) process at the harbor with open bidding for development that is not limited to apartment developers’ proposals. In addition, when the existing ERNs expire in a year and a half, an open rebidding process should be implemented.
