WHAT: Oxnard Local Coastal Plan Update Kick-Off Meetings
Thursday, October 29, 2015, from 2 PM – 4 PM; Advanced Water Purification Facility, 5700 Perkins Road, Oxnard

[focus on Channel Islands Harbor to Santa Clara River]
WHY: At these two kick off meetings, the public will be provided with an overview of the overall 18-month grant-funded Oxnard Local Coastal Plan (LCP) Update schedule, technical tasks, public involvement opportunities, and adoption process followed by a focused Ormond Beach area discussion on October 29 and a focused discussion on the Channel Islands Harbor to the Santa Clara River area on November 4. Draft sea-level rise maps will be presented for the entire Coastal Zone at both meetings.
LCPs are basic planning tools used by local governments to guide development in the Coastal Zone, in partnership with the Coastal Commission. Each LCP has two components, a Land Use Plan (LUP) which designates land uses and lists over 90 policies, and an Implementation Plan (IP) which are regulations and procedures that implement the LUP policies. LCPs reflect the unique characteristics of each individual local coastal community as well as addressing regional and statewide interests and concerns.
The City’s LCP has not been comprehensively updated since its adoption in 1982. The update effort is intended to bring the LCP into conformance with City’s General Plan 2030 goals and policies related to climate change and sea level rise, as well as Coastal Commission policy directives related to protection of coastal resources and development in the Coastal Zone.
