If you want to build in the city of Oxnard, you have to play by Oxnard's rules. That's the message the City Council sent to Ventura County on Thursday when it voted 6-1 to deny a Fisherman's Wharf residential project at Channel Islands Harbor.

HBCA Position

What is needed and would be supported regarding the proposed Fisherman’s Wharf project by the County and Channel Islands Harbor Properties LLC

About The Scale Model

Using the developer’s own architectural drawings, HBCA created a Scale Model. For the first time, the public can actually see the scale and density of the Fisherman’s Wharf project. The public can see the County and Developer’s promotional renderings are misleading.

About HBCA

What do we want?

WE WANT

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

WE WANT

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

WE WANT

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.
