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.
The City of Oxnard’s denial of the County’s Local Coastal Plan Amendment (LCPA) was a win that temporarily stopped the project moving forward. But the County and the billionaire developers have not given up.
On January 27, 2020, the County filed an Override request with the California Coastal Commission. The County’s Override seeks to overturn the City’s LCPA denial. If the Coastal Commission approves this Override, the project will be able to go forward. We need the Coastal Commission to deny the County’s request for an Override.
